The College Connection Concurrent Enrollment Program is designed to provide current high students who have completed the 8th grade or higher at time of entering course the opportunity to get an “early start” on their college experience while still enrolled in high school.
An Admissions Application and College Connection Course Request Form (page 4 of the College Connection Course Enrollment Packet) should be submitted as early as possible to ensure best consideration for classes and no later than one week before classes begin.
Enrollment fees and non-resident tuition are waived for students enrolled in California high schools if they are registered in fewer than 11.5 units. Student body fees are optional for California high school students.
