Dual Enrollment Program

What is Dual Enrollment:

Cypress College partners with designated high school districts to offer high school students the opportunity to earn college credit while attending high school at no cost.

Students enrolled in Dual Enrollment courses earn college credit for college classes that can be applied toward Cypress College certificates and/or degrees. Dual Enrollment courses may also be eligible to transfer to a CSU or UC institution and reduce the amount of coursework towards a four-year degree. Courses offered through the Dual Enrollment program may be taken at the college or high school campus.

Benefits Include:

· Cypress College waives tuition, health fees, student fees.

· Textbooks and Instructional materials are provided by the high school district.

· Dual Enrollment offers courses that are transferable to community colleges, UCs, CSUs, or used to begin career pathways.

· Dual Credit: Some high school districts may allow students to receive high school credit. All students should check with their high school counselors for dual credit.

Dual Enrollment offers student support throughout the application and registration process via class presentations, orientations, registration workshops, email, and text messaging applications. Courses taken by a Dual Enrollment student are recorded on the student’s permanent record as college credit in the same manner as regularly enrolled college students. Credit may be given at the high school and may meet a graduation requirement; however, students should first consult with the high school counselor. Special Admit students must adhere to all college policies on admission, registration, course requirements, attendance, Student Code of Conduct, and all other applicable policies and procedures.

Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA):

All student records are protected under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) of 1974. No one (including parents and high school officials) can access confidential information without the student’s written consent.
