Dual Enrollment through West Valley College

What is Dual Enrollment? 

The Dual Enrollment (DE) program is a partnership between Campbell Union High School District (CUHSD) and West Valley College (WVC). The program is available to 10th, 11th and 12th-grade students
  • Students earn both high school and college credit. Every 3-unit West Valley course gives 10 high school credits.
  • Courses and units earned transfer to West Valley College as well as other community colleges and universities.
  • Get a head start on college while earning high school credits or make-up credits needed for high school graduation.
  • Courses are part of a major, college general education, and/or electives.
  • Courses and textbooks are free to students.
  • Course offerings change each term: fall and spring.
  • Students are on the WVC calendar.
  • Students can enroll in classes at any CUHSD campus as long as it doesn't conflict with their Westmont bell schedule: Leigh High School, Branham High School, Del Mar High School, or Prospect High School. 


How do I become a Dual Enrollment student?

    • Within 5 minutes to 2 hours, you will receive your West Valley College G# (e.g., G08XXXXXX) via email. Save this number in a place you can easily access it because you will need it moving forward. Email the Admissions Office if you do not receive your G# within 2 hours - include your full name, CCC ID#, and date of birth.

  1. Complete the online registration.
  2. Upload documentation of disability (e.g., IEP, 504 plan or physician's verification).
  3. Make an appointment with a DESP counselor to complete program registration by calling 408-741-2010.
