Special High School Admission Program

Applicants between 16 and 18 years old may be admitted to a college if they are deemed able to benefit from the curricular offerings of the college. Enrollment is limited to college level courses numbered 100 or above. In order to determine a student's readiness for college level courses, the student will be required to take the ASSET college placement test, which is administered at SFCC. Generally the student must place at the college-level in both reading and writing in order to be eligible for courses other than mathematics. To take mathematics courses, the student must place at the college level in mathematics. Admission may be to individual courses or to a program as determined by admissions officials.

This policy is intended to expand opportunities for younger, qualified students who may not be enrolled in Running Start or other local student enrollment option programs. For currently enrolled high school applicants, a release form for attendance at SFCC identifying approved credit classes and signed by your high school principal must be submitted quarterly. The intent of this policy is not to replace or duplicate the functions of local public schools.

Students should not view this program as an alternative to attending high school. All students are strongly encouraged to attend and meet the graduation requirements of their local high school.

To apply, the following must be on file in the SFCC Admissions Office:

  • State of Washington Community College Application for Admission Form (obtained from a high school counselor)
  • High School Student Recommendation Form identifying approved credit classes and signed by your high school counselor.
