Community College Concurrent Enrollment

California high school students can concurrently enroll in community college courses for FREE! Students are required to pay for parking (if needed), course materials, books, and health fees. 

  • In general students should choose courses which allow you to explore your college major or personal interests and which are not offered at HMSA. 
  • Concurrent enrollment IS NOT FOR CREDIT RECOVERY. Community colleges have rules that prohibit students from taking courses in subject areas where the student has received a grade below "C," and actually grades of A's and B's in that subject area would be preferable. This rule establishes your preparedness to succeed in a college level course for that subject area. 
  • Credit courses are college courses and will remain on the student's permanent record even if the secondary school uses the coursework for high school credit. 

STEP 1: Decide what course(s) you would like to take. Check the schedule of classes to see what dates & times the course will be offered. If a current schedule of classes is not yet posted, you can check the year prior - often schedules of classes do not change much from year to year.

STEP 2: Verify that your desired course(s) are A-G approved by visiting the UC Doorways website and that you have never received a grade lower than a "C" in that subject area. 

 

STEP 3: Print and complete the Concurrent Enrollment Form indicating the course(s) you would like to request and schedule a meeting with your counselor.
