Benefits

  • Accelerate your college career earning certificates and degrees
  • College courses at no cost to you!
  • Confidence to succeed in higher education
  • Take courses both at your high school and at the CCD campus

Getting Started

Notification: Students interested in taking concurrent enrollment courses should first speak with their high school counselor as the registration process, eligibility, and permission may vary at each school. 

Your high school counselor will work with you on the actual steps for registration. You will not directly register for CCD classes; the College Pathways office completes this process due to college coding requirements in the college records system. 

To participate in concurrent enrollment, please be ready to complete the following steps:

  • CCD Application for Admission to receive an S-number (student ID)
  • College Opportunity Fund (COF) application
  • Complete & sign the Concurrent Enrollment Agreement & Registration forms (Obtain these from your high school counselor.)
  • Meet the prerequisites and/or co-requisites for the course, which may include placement test scores and/or completed previous coursework. Specific information on prerequisites can be found in the CCD catalog.
  • If you have questions about the number of courses you can take, please speak with your high school counselor or the College Pathways office.

Students who take classes at CCD campuses must make an individual appointment with the College Pathways advisor to register for classes. Additional deadlines may apply. Please contact your high school counselor or the College Pathways office for more information.

Billing Information and Cost of Participation

Because districts and schools pay the student tuition for concurrent enrollment, there should be little to no costs to students and families. Students should apply for the College Opportunity Fund, which is not covered by districts or schools and if this is not successfully connected to your account, you will be responsible for this charge. Students may also be responsible for the cost of books or course-specific / material fees (e.g., art supplies), so please check with your high school for their policy on this. Concurrent enrollment students are not eligible to receive federal financial aid until after they graduate from high school.

Additional Fees

  • Concurrent Enrollment Students: No Additional Fees Apply
  • ASCENT Students: Additional Fees May Apply
  • 5th Year Early College: Additional Fees May Apply

Notification: If you receive a bill from CCD and have questions, please contact the College Pathways office.
