As a condition to an eligible student's enrollment in college or university courses under this chapter, the eligibility of the courses which the student intends to take for the award of high school credit and the amount of such credit shall first be established, as follows:
(1) The student shall notify the school district through which the student seeks to obtain the award of running start program high school credit of the specific college or university courses he or she intends to take and shall request confirmation of the amount of high school credit that will be awarded upon successful completion of the courses.
(2) The school district shall establish on a course by course basis the amount of high school required or elective credit, or combination thereof, that shall be awarded for each college or university course successfully completed by the student based upon the conversion rate set forth in WAC 180-51-050
(3) If a college or university course is not comparable to a school district course required for high school graduation, the school district superintendent shall determine the amount of required high school credit which shall be awarded following consultation with a representative of the institution of higher education designated for that purpose. The difference between the amount of required credit and the amount of credit earned at the conversion rate set forth in WAC 180-51-050
shall be awarded as elective credit.
(4) Within twenty school district business days of a student's request for confirmation of credit the school district superintendent or other designated school district representative shall confirm in writing the amount of high school required or elective credit, or combination thereof, which shall be awarded upon successful completion of the courses.
