Dual & Concurrent Enrollment

  • Makeup 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.
  • Students are on the WVC calendar.
  • The application is below. Seats can fill up quickly.

FALL 2021 UPDATES:

 

Courses for Fall 2021 will be offered entirely in the synchronous online modality (i.e. with scheduled days and times). Even if you do not intend to enroll at WVC after graduation, the course(s) and units completed transfer to other colleges and universities.  In addition, for every three college units a student enrolls in, that student earns ten units on their high school transcript.  The program provides students an opportunity to make up credits needed for high school graduation, explore college courses, and earn a head start on college.   This program is open to students that will be sophomores, juniors, and seniors (grades 10, 11, and 12) by September 2021.

 

 

Essential Information

This upcoming Fall 2021 semester, West Valley College is offering 10 classes at high schools in CUHSD.  Some important facts about students enrolled in the Dual Enrollment Program:

  • Students are on the WVC calendar. For this upcoming fall semester, the courses start on September 7 and end on December 14. That is just over three months!  Some holidays may differ between WVC an CUHSD
  • 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 university 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. Exception:  ASLA 60A is dedicated to Westmont students this term. If space is available, an announcement will go out making other school know of the additional space.
  • Math 105, Pre-Statistics, requires no background in algebra, prepares students for college-level statistics.
  • Completed applications for the Fall 2021 term must be submitted by Wednesday, June 1st.
