For Parents & Students
College Bound Scholarship
The College Bound Scholarship program is an early commitment of state financial aid to eligible students who sign up in middle school and fulfill the scholarship pledge.
Dual credit programs give students the opportunity to earn high school and college credit simultaneously. Students that earn college credit are more likely to graduate high school, enroll in college, and complete college degrees.
Most common dual credit programs in Washington State are:
- Running Start — SBCTC
- Career & Technical Education (CTE) — OSPI
- College in the High School — SBCTC
