Running Start @ NSCC
Are you eligible for the free or reduced lunch program at your high school?
If your answer is yes, you may borrow books from the Running Start Program.
You may begin borrowing books by following these simple steps:
1. Complete the Running Start Bookfund Contract/Eligibility form. We need a new contract/eligibility form for every school year you are enrolled in Running Start.
2. Attach a copy of your reduced price meals eligibility letter from your school district. If your letter is not yet available at the beginning of the school year, ask your high school counselor or high school lunch room coordinator to sign the form.
3. Return the form and a copy of the eligibility letter to the Running Start Office at NSCC with the appropriate signatures.
Forms should be returned two weeks before each quarter begins. This allows you to pick up your required books before the quarter begins.
Important: If you turn in your Bookfund contract form without the supporting letter from your school district, make sure and turn in that letter by the time you register for the next quarter.
Not sure if you qualify?
Contact your high school or school district Nutrition Services office for the free or reduced lunch program eligibility requirements.
Where and when do I pick up my books?
Students who have already submitted the Bookfund contract form may pick up their books the day before the quarter begins. Books are checked out at the Advising front desk.
When do I return my books?
Books are due back to the Running Start office by the end of the quarter. Please return your books as soon as you complete your finals.
