Current high school students with the permission of their high school principal or designee, may attend college credit courses at Contra Costa College. This is known as concurrent enrollment. Students wishing to receive high school credit in addition to college credit should consult with their high school counselor.
Students must be enrolled in high school and are limited to no more than 11 units at Contra Costa College.
Principals from both public and private high schools may recommend college enrollment for students who have demonstrated adequate preparation in the discipline to be studied.
Recommendations from private high school principals for enrollment in college classes will only be accepted from private schools which have filed the proper affidavit with the Superintendent of Public Instruction. Private schools not listed as active on the California Department of Education website must provide the college with proof of filing the affidavit. Home-schooled students must provide proof of filing as a private school OR may obtain sign-off from the local public high school that the student would normally be attending. The local high school must be willing to accept home schooling as valid school attendance and determine whether the pupil has completed coursework sufficient to prepare him or her to undertake college-level course work.
