Dual Enrollment - Steps to Success
Dual Enrollment applies to students in Grades 9-12 concurrently enrolling at Cuesta College while in high school. As of Fall 2015, Cuesta College offers two Dual Enrollment programs for high school students: Enrichment Program and CCAP Program. Dual Enrollment students may participate in both the Enrichment and CCAP Programs in a term.
High School Enrichment Program
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.
Challenge by Pupils in Grades 6-8
Students in grades 6-8 who are certified as "highly gifted" by their school district may request to attend Cuesta College concurrently. "Highly gifted pupil" means a gifted and talented pupil who has achieved a measured intelligence quotient of 150 or more points on
an assessment of intelligence administered by qualified personnel.
