If approved, the form must be signed by your high school principal or designee and parent. Additional instructions for completing this form may be found here: Concurrent Enrollment (Special Admit) Form instructions
An official transcript or copy of your official transcript (unofficial) can be used to clear the course prerequisite. In-progress course work is insufficient to clear prerequisites and will not be accepted. Students currently enrolled in the prerequisite course in which final grades will not be available by the registration date should contact the Placement Center to arrange to complete the placement test. All students who successfully test into the next course before high school registration date will be eligible to enroll. Student who are unable to pass the placement test will be required to wait for final grades from your high school to be posted. Late registration after the late add period is not permitted. For additional detailed information about placement tests contact the placement office.
Once your application is processed, you will be issued a Student ID number. Keep this information secure and confidential as it will allow access into your college education records.
Check your registration date on the academic calendar. There is one day set aside for concurrent high school students. You can register on or any day after the date in the academic calendar. Registration for concurrent students is completed in person at the Admissions + Records Office.
Contra Costa College has waived the enrollment fee for part-time high school students; however, all other fees must be paid at the time of enrollment.
Bring your registration receipt to the Welcome Center to obtain your student ID card.
You can purchase textbooks in the Contra Costa College Bookstore on campus or online.
You must be on time for the first class meeting. If you do not attend the first class on time, you may be dropped from the class to make room for another student. It’s a good idea to come to campus before the first day of classes to find your classrooms. Also, parking can be hard to find during the first week of classes—allow enough time to park and walk to your class.
