I started doing online Running Start this year with Covid messing up my Senior year, and I've had a wonderful experience with my two classes at SPSCC. My professors assign meaningful work and provide helpful feedback. I feel that I am learning a lot, without it being horribly overwhelming. Also, no expensive books!
They offer a plethora of classes- you'll find something that fits without problem. I was a bit late to signing up and I had no problems finding classes with good professors. I have enjoyed my experience and definitely would recommend it to other, be it Running Start or getting your Associate's degree!

The academics are overall interesting and I've had almost no issues with professors so far. The library and librarians are excellent, but the resources within the library are a bit out dated. Student life is very active and involved and creates a welcoming environment!
I attend SPSCC as a high school student through Running Start, and I like the environment there. The staff and advisors are very helpful when it comes to navigating your degree, your classes, the campus, and all the other processes involved in going to college there. Of course, the biggest advantage is offering a certain number of free credits for six quarters to high school students, which is Running Start. SPSCC offers a variety of classes and degrees that work perfectly for high school students, a great advising program, and many tutoring and other help centers that can answer any questions you have or do things for you. They also have many food options and many different areas where you can go between classes as well as a series of student-use computers if technology is an issue. I have enjoyed my time at SPSCC, and I look forward to my second and final year there.
