Taking Classes While Still in High School - Concurrent Enrollment

Many students jumpstart their college education by enrolling at Cabrillo College while they are still in High School. High school students may attend classes at Cabrillo on a limited basis, with the permission of their high school. 

See Concurrent Enrollment Facts (COMING SOON - check back)

  • You can take an appropriate class that has available space (see below for Suggested Courses).
  • You can enroll in classes numbered 1-199. State law prohibits Cabrillo from offering Basic Skills classes (200 level classes) to high school students.
  • You need to Apply to Cabrillo and submit a signed Concurrent Enrollment Form (formerly High School Release Form) EACH TERM - (Fall, Winter, Spring, Summer) before you can register. **
  • For some classes (like English or Math, or a Science class requiring Math) you have to take a placement test.  View the current Assessment Schedule and/or call the Assessment Office with questions at 479-6165 or 479-3516.

** Concurrently-enrolled High School students are considered NEW STUDENTS each term, for purposes of registration - even if you have taken courses previously at Cabrillo.  You MUST submit an application for enrollment and a Concurrent Enrollment form each term until you graduate from high school.
