College and Career Access Pathways (CCAP) Program Information: 

With our CCAP program, high school students can be awarded both college credit and high school credit for a single course. Through California legislation (AB288; AB30), CCAP courses are at no cost to the student – including waived enrollment fees and instructional materials such as textbooks. Through our partnerships with local school districts, we aim to provide seamless pathways for high school students in Career Technical Education, preparing for transfer, and college and career readiness.

Why participate in CCAP while in High School?

  • Complete high school and college credits at the same time in one high school class period
  • Save time and money on your educational journey
  • Ease your transition to college in your supportive high school environment
    • Most CCAP classes are taught by high school teachers!
  • Explore various careers and majors before entering college

In the 2021-2022 Academic Year in partnership with our local area high school districts:

  • Over 65 unique Cuesta College courses in over 250 CCAP sections were offered 
  • Over 2,500 local area high school students participated in the program
  • High school students across SLO County graduated in Spring 2022 with up to the equivalent of a year of college coursework completed

Things to consider before participating in CCAP/Dual Enrollment: 

  • Enrolling in college courses creates a permanent college transcript
  • It is the student’s responsibility to drop a course before the drop deadline to avoid getting a negative grade on their college transcript

  • Parental involvement will be significantly different at the college level. Although students are still young adults, enrolling in college courses means they will be treated as college students. The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) prevents higher education officials and instructional staff from releasing any information to family, friends, or others without a written release from the student, even if the student is a minor.
