High School Students
In accordance with California Education Code regulations, high school students entering 10th grade or above may enroll as special part-time students. Enrollment must be recommended by their principal, with parental consent. Units earned are for college credit. It is the high school’s prerogative to grant high school credit for courses taken from the Peralta Colleges.
Note: Special part-time high school students are exempted from paying the California Community College Enrollment Fee, but all other fees apply. Full-time (enrolled in 11.5 or more units) concurrently enrolled high school students are subject to the California Community College enrollment fees and all other fees.
Age Limit: Students entering the 10th grade or higher are eligible. Any exceptions to this grade level requirement will require approval from the Vice President or Dean of Student Services on campus.
The student must follow all the regulations and policies of the college, including adhering to any pre/co-requisite requirements. An English, ESL and/or math assessment (placement test) is required if the college course prerequisite has not been completed. A high school student whose high school counselor recommends that the student enroll in more than 6.5 units must have the approval of the college Vice President of Student Services and provide a high school transcript.
