Steps for Dual Enrollment

K-12 students must first submit an online application for admission to El Camino College.

(If you already have an ECC ID Number and have not missed consecutive fall and spring semesters, proceed to Step 2.)

Apply for Admission

If this is your first time applying, you will create an OpenCCC account, then use it to start a new application for El Camino College.

Take your time and enter all identifying information carefully. Make sure to apply for the correct term you wish to start taking classes, i.e. Spring Semester 2022 or Summer Session 2022.

K-12 students need to indicate that they are "enrolling in high school (or lower grade) and college at the same time."

For help to submit an application for admission, follow this guide:

Help to Complete the Application

You will be sent your Welcome Email (with your ECC Student ID Number and access to MyECC) 1-3 business days after you submit your application.

NOTE: Students who miss consecutive fall and spring terms need to apply for admission again.

 

K-12 students need to submit a completed Dual Enrollment Application form for each term they wish to take classes.

This form needs to be signed by the student, a parent/guardian, and a principal or counselor at the student's high school.

This form is also where K-12 students indicate the 1-2 courses for which they would like to register, i.e. Psychology 101 and Mathematics 150.

Even though Steps 3-4 are completed for you, it's important to know how to sign into MyECC and perform actions on your student account.

  • Check your registered classes in MyECC. In the Self-Service Menu, click Registration, then click My class schedule.
  • Check your account balance in MyECC. In the Self-Service Menu, click Financial Information, then click View Account and Make Payments. K-12 students who have completed the Steps for Dual Enrollment should see the message "No account balance to pay."
  • After you are registered for an online class, your Canvas account will be created for you automatically (usually overnight). Make sure you can sign into Canvas before the start of the class.
  • Check your @elcamino.edu email address regularly, as this is where all official communication from El Camino and/or your instructors will be sent. You can even add your @elcamino.edu email address to your smart phone/mobile device.
  • Make sure to review the Academic Calendar to learn important information about the term, including the Last Day to Drop Without Notation on Permanent Record and Last Day to Drop with a 'W' should you need to drop a class.
