High School Students
Dual Enrollment: Take college classes while in high school
Cuesta College offers two Dual Enrollment programs for high school students: High School Enrichment Program and CCAP Program. Dual Enrollment students may participate in both the Enrichment and CCAP Programs in a term.
Dual Enrollment applies to students in Grades 9-12 who are concurrently enrolled at Cuesta College while in high school
The Enrichment Program is available to any high school student, who in the opinion of their school principal, would benefit from "advanced scholastic" or "vocational" college coursework offered at any Cuesta campus published in the online Class Finder schedule, which are open to the public and adult learners. Qualified students on their own accord, apply and register under the Enrichment Program.
Visit the High School Enrichment Program webpage for more detailed information and enrollment steps.
The CCAP Program provides an opportunity for students at our participating local area public high schools the ability to engage in Cuesta College courses at their high school during their high school period – receiving both college and high school credit simultaneously. Classes are closed to the public and only available to students who attend high school.
