HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS
El Camino College Board Policy 5010 allows dual enrollment only to students who have successfully completed the 10th grade or to students who are dual enrolled in 11th or 12th grade. A student in K-10 may be admitted for attendance under very limited circumstances as identified by the District. In addition, enrollment fees are waived for California residents. Non-residents, out-of-country and out-of-state students will pay the appropriate tuition.
El Camino College will admit qualified 11th-12th grade students who have the ability to benefit by dual enrolling in college classes while still in high school. By law, El Camino College may restrict K-12 enrollment based on any of the following: age, grade, academic preparation, seat availability or registration priority.
El Camino College will grant college credit for completed coursework. Students should consult their high school counselor and/or school district policy on enrolling in college classes to earn high school credits or dual credit.
Applying to El Camino College does not guarantee a seat in a class. Registration priority is given to continuing students first, followed by new and returning students, and then K-12 students. K-12 Students must go through the application process each semester that they are enrolled as a dual enrolled student.
