Jumpstart your college education

Dual Enrollment

Take college classes while you are in high school!

Hundreds of students jumpstart their college education by enrolling at Cabrillo College while they are still in high school. 

Through Cabrillo's dual enrollment program, high school students attend classes at Cabrillo for free, with the permission of their high school and parents. Dual enrollment allows you to earn credit toward a college degree or certificate, take classes that aren't available at your high school, or to try something new!
