Dual Enrollment and Concurrent Enrollment
Dual Enrollment Opportunties
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 2024 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) or asynchronously online (no scheduled meetings). Students 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).
This upcoming Spring 2024 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 29 and end on May 21. 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 19 and spring break on April 1-5.
- 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.

Planning To Take An Enrichment or Community College Course?
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)
