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. 
The courses West Valley College is offering through this Dual Enrollment Program are taught only to students in the Campbell Union High School District. Some courses for Spring 2024 will be offered in-person at the high school campus indicated in the table below. Other courses are offered synchronously online (i.e. with scheduled days and times) or asynchronously online (no scheduled meetings). Students can enroll in classes not offered at their home campus but need to ensure they can arrange travel to that campus and arrive on time. Even if you do not intend to enroll at WVC after graduation, the course(s) and units completed transfer to other colleges and universities. The program provides students an opportunity to make up credits needed for high school graduation, explore college courses, and obtain a head start on college. This program is open to students who are sophomores, juniors, and seniors (grades 10, 11, and 12). 

Essential Information

This upcoming Summer 2024 semester, West Valley College is offering 3 classes.  Some important facts about students enrolled in the Dual Enrollment Program:


ESL 65LS, Advanced Listening and Speaking is designed for English Learners/Emergent Multilingual students. 


Students are on the WVC calendar. For this upcoming summer session, the courses start on June 10th or June 17th (depending on class).
Fall courses will start September 3rd and end December 11th.
Some holidays may differ between WVC and CUHSD. Students are expected to attend class following the WVC calendar. 
Courses students complete, and grades earned, remain on the student’s permanent college transcript. Students can use these units towards high school graduation, towards a WVC degree or certificate, and at other colleges and universities attended in the future.  Students who opt to take a class become WVC students for that term. This means that students have privacy rights, are permitted to use WVC facilities, and are subject to the WVC student code of conduct. Course textbooks will be provided during the first week of class at no cost to the student. Students are required to return those textbooks at the end of the term.
Students are permitted to enroll in any class, even if the class is not held on the student’s campus.
Completed applications for the Summer 2024 term must be submitted by Monday, May 13th.
No extended deadline for summer applications.
Fall 2024 Application deadline is August 19, 2024
