What is Dual Enrollment?

"Dual enrollment" means a student is enrolled in a high school course, taught by a high school teacher on a high school campus, that is also approved for college credit when taught by a high school teacher on a high school campus.

 

Courses eligible for dual enrollment in Simi Valley Unified start with Career and College Seminar (CCS) in the 9th grade. The high school student receives 5 units of high school credit and 3 units of college credit at the successful completion of the course.

 

What are the benefits of Dual Enrollment?

Dual enrollmen promotes college transition in important ways for all students. Often students with backgrounds who are underrepresented in college, do  as well or better in college courses as those who are NOT dually enrolled. This means dually enrolled students have higher

What is  Concurrent Enrollment?

"Concurrent enrollment" means a high school student is enrolled in a college class taught on the college campus by a college professor yet, receives high school credit along with college credit. 

 

What are the requirements of a concurrent course?

You must be a high school student who has obtained permission from your high school counselor. You must be enrolled and attend your high school campus for at least four classes per day to be able to enroll in and earn credits from a concurrent course.

 

Is there a cost to receive the college credit from dual or concurrent courses?

High school students do not pay college enrollment fees ($46/unit) or for books to earn credit for dual enrollment or concurrent enrollment classes. CCS is free to all SVUSD students. By taking college courses in the high school years, students save time and money while working on the completion of a college degree after high school.
