PHS Dual Enrollment Opportunities

Dear Student,

 

I hope you all have stayed safe and enjoyed your summer.  My name is Chris Dyer and I am the Vice Provost at West Valley College.  This message is to inform you once again of the opportunities of the Dual Enrollment Partnership between the Campbell Union High School District (CUHSD) and West Valley College (WVC) and changes in the format of the classes and how it affects the students enrolled.

 

Informational Session

For students and parents that want more information, I will be holding a forum on Zoom on Tuesday, August 18, 3:30-4:30PM.  Use the following link to attend https://cccconfer.zoom.us/j/96132938136Links to an external site.. I will spend the first half hour talking about the benefits of the program and how to apply.  The second half hour I will discuss the student experience in an online class, how to connect with the learning management system WVC uses (Canvas), and how to contact your professor if you need help.

 

What is the Dual Enrollment Program?

The Dual Enrollment Program is an amazing opportunity where high school students in CUHSD can enroll in West Valley College classes for free while earning high school and college credit simultaneously. Typically, the courses West Valley College is offering through this Dual Enrollment Program are taught at your high school.  For fall 2020, all courses will be offered online. Students at any high school can enroll in any course. Even if you do not intend to enroll at WVC after graduation, the course(s) and units completed transfer to other colleges and universities.  In addition, for every three college units a student enrolls in, that student earns ten units on his/her high school transcript.  This program provides students an opportunity to make up credits needed for high school graduation, explore college courses, and earn a head start on college.  This program is open to students that will be sophomores, juniors, and seniors (grades 10, 11, and 12) in fall 2020.

 

Course Offerings

This upcoming fall 2020 semester, West Valley College is offering 11 classes at high schools in CUHSD.  Some important facts about students enrolled in the Dual Enrollment Program:

  • Students are on the WVC calendar. For this upcoming fall semester, the courses start on September 8 and end on December 15.  Only a little over three months!  Some holidays may differ between WVC and CUHSD.
  • Courses students complete, and grades earned, remain on the student’s permanent college transcript.  Students can use these units towards high school graduation, towards a WVC degree or certificate, and at other colleges and universities attended in the future.
  • Students who opt to take a class become WVC students for that term. This means that students have privacy rights, are permitted to use WVC facilities, and are subject to the WVC student code of conduct.
  • Course textbooks will be provided during the first week of class at no cost to the student.  Students are required to return those textbooks to their high school at the end of the term.
  • Students are permitted to enroll in a class at any high school.  However, the books are to be picked up from the high school they are enrolled.

Course Benefits

  • All courses award students credit towards the 60 semester units required for an associate’s degree.  With the exception of MATH 105, all courses award students credit towards the 120 units required for a bachelor’s degree.  Even if the student is not majoring in the program(s) the course is attached to, these courses can count as elective units.
  • Math 105, Pre-Statistics, requires no background in algebra, prepares students for college-level statistics, and gives students credit for Integrated Math 3 to graduate high school as well as satisfy the Communication and Analytical Thinking Requirement for an associate’s degree at WVC.
  • The table below indicates if the course satisfies a general education requirement and/or which programs they progress the student towards. The IGETC general education pattern is used for the UC and CSU systems.  Even if the student is studying a different field, the course will count towards the necessary elective credit for a degree.
