Concurrent Enrollment or Enrichment Opportunities

Planning To Take An Enrichment or Community College Course?

Go to the website of the community college where you would like to take this class. Check the Schedule of Classes. Find the class that you identified on ASSIST.org (to ensure this class will transfer to the university you plan to attend). Look for days and times that would work with your schedule.

PLEASE NOTE: If you are planning to take a community college course during the school year (concurrent enrollment), it must be AFTER all of your classes at Prospect. Classes at the community college can NOT be used to substitute a class that is required for high school graduation, and any outside courses will not go on your high school transcript.

IMPORTANT: Community colleges require anyone under 18 years of age to get a concurrent enrollment form signed in order to take a college course. The form is obtained directly from the community college and MUST be signed by your guidance counselor.

For any courses that you plan to take outside of Prospect, be sure to submit the CUHSD Concurrent Enrollment Acknowledgement Form. (attached to this message)
