Pierce College District Running Start Verification for Eligibility for Home School Running Start

Additional Information:

  • Students need a signature from a representative in their home district.
  • The public high school representative varies from district to district.
  • Although the home-schooled student is not likely to be taking courses at the public high school, it is still necessary for the public school representative to sign off on the verification form. This process will confirm the student is not enrolled in classes at their public high school.  Parents and guardians will continue to write recommended classes for the student.
