High School Students

Peralta’s High School Special Enrollment  provides enrichment opportunities for high school students who can benefit from college level instruction. 

Each College may admit a number of high school students entering 9th grade or above who have exceptional ability, or who desire specialized or advanced training. Admission to the college requires approval from your high school counselor. **Other high-school students may be admitted on the basis of a contractual arrangement between the District and the high school of attendance (PCCDBP 5010).

High school students enrolling in a college level course must meet assessment requirements. The student must follow all the regulations and policies of the college, including adhering to any prerequisite requirements. It is recommended that the student brings a high school transcript to assist the college in determining the correct level of courses.

Fees and tuition:

As or Fall 2019, special part-time students are exempt from paying and will not be charged enrollment fees and any other college/district fees.

The High School Special Enrollment is specifically designed to accelerate the academic or vocational career of high school students. Access to the Special Enrollment Program is NOT allowed for:

  • Remedial work (any classes in any discipline that are not college level and cannot be applied to an associate degree or higher). Remedial course numbers are 250 or higher.
