Welcome and congratulations on taking this step of earning college credit while in high school through Pasadena City College’s Dual Enrollment Program! Dual enrollment affords you the opportunity to take college courses without leaving your high school campus. You will earn both high school and college credit for the courses, free of charge.
Steps to apply to PCC’s Dual Enrollment Program:
- Your high school has to approve your participation in dual enrollment. Make them (high school counselor or principal) aware of your interest and get their approval.
- Once you have been approved by your high school and you have applied to PCC, you will have to review and sign a Dual Enrollment Approval Form: high school student, which will be sent to you via email by PCC. You should only have to complete this form once for the duration of your high school enrollment and your participation in PCC’s dual enrollment program.
- Your parent/guardian also has to approve your participation in PCC’s dual enrollment program by signing their part of the Dual Enrollment Approval Form: parent of high school student, which will be sent to them via email by PCC.
- Once PCC receives your completed forms with signatures (student and parent versions of the Dual Enrollment Approval Form), as well as an unofficial copy of your high school transcript, you will be enrolled in the dual enrollment courses approved by your high school counselor or prinicpal. High school transcripts will be provided by the high school.
