Running Start Information

  • RSEVF for Current Running Start Students

    DO NOT FORGET. Once you register for classes, you must schedule an appointment and meet with your NTHS counselor to get your RSEVF signed.  You must print the form, fill it out, sign it, have your parent/guardian sign it, and THEN bring it to your NTHS counselor. YOU WILL THEN RETURN THE FORM TO SPSCC. This must be done every quarter.

    You can print the RSEVF from the SPSCC website: 

    To schedule an appointment, email, call 360-412-4810 or stop by the counseling center at NTHS.

    If you plan on attending Running Start in the Fall of 2024, make sure you get your RSEVF signed by your NTHS counselor NO LATER THAN June 14th, 2024
