Dual Enrollment and Concurrent Enrollment

Concurrent Enrollment

 

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)

 

Concurrent Enrollment Forms can be found here:

 

Dual Enrollment Opportunities Spring 2023

 
Courses Offered
Below is a complete list of courses offered for the Spring 2023 term. There will be a different course
schedule for Fall 2023. Descriptions for each course and the college pathways they lead to are given as
an attachment.The courses West Valley College is offering through this Dual Enrollment Program are taught only to
students in the Campbell Union High School District. Some courses for Spring 2023 will be offered in-
person at the high school campus indicated in the table below. Other courses are offered synchronously
online (i.e. with scheduled days and times). Student can enroll in classes not offered at their home
campus, but need to ensure they can arrange travel to that campus and arrive on time. 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, that student earns
ten units on their high school transcript. The program provides students an opportunity to make up
credits needed for high school graduation, explore college courses, and obtain a head start on college.
This program is open to students that are sophomores, juniors, and seniors (grades 10, 11, and 12).
 
Essential Information
This upcoming Spring 2023 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 spring semester, the courses start on January
    30 and end on May 23. Some holidays may differ between WVC and CUHSD. Students are expected
    to attend class in accordance with the WVC calendar. WVC observes President’s Day on February 20
    and spring break on March 27-31.
  • 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 university 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 at the end of the term.
  • Students are permitted to enroll in any class, even if the class is not held on the student’s campus.
  • Math 105, Pre-Statistics, requires no background in algebra, prepares students for college-level
    statistics, and gives students credit for Integrated Math 3. This course is recommended for students
    that struggle in Integrated Math 1 or 2 and do not plan to study in business or STEM disciplines in
    college. It is not appropriate for students that have or will complete Integrated Math 3
