  2. Submit a general CCS Application for Admission. Apply online at www.scc.spokane.edu or in person at the Admissions Office in Building 15. List Running Start as your intended major area of interest. You will receive an SCC student identification number (SID) from the Admissions Office.

  3. Take the COMPASS (the college assessment for reading/writing) and ALEKS (college assessment for math skills).
    • Schedule an appointment by calling the SCC Testing Center, 509.533.7074
