Running Start Advising

Are you ready to take the first step towards registering for Running Start at Bates Technical College?

Step 1: Meet with the Running Start Advisor.

In this important first step, you and your advisor will discuss program(s) of interest, testing, wait listing, the registration process, and class scheduling. Running Start is not the only dual-credit option available to students. The array of options available to students should be discussed as part of the advising process.

Running Start students are held to the same expectations as all other college students. Attendance, participation, behavior, and quality of work must meet college standards. Please read through our Student Handbook and these other important links prior to your first day of class.

Students pursuing a degree at Bates can earn an Associate in Applied Science (AAS) or an Associate in Applied Science-Transfer (AAS-T). Learn more about our degree options.
