High School Concurrent Enrollment - 2016/2017

The San Bernardino Community College District provides opportunities for high school students who want to have an advanced academic or vocational experience while enrolled in high school.

Apply

Students who are interested in concurrent enrollment must have approval from their high school principal/designee and parents prior to filing an application.  High School students are limited to one (1) course per semester.

High School Students.... Consider this!

  • Earn college credit while in high school, finish college early.
  • One semester of Valley College is equal to approximately a year of HS.
  • Significantly reduce the overall time & expenses associated with college = Save $$$
  • Take fun classes like art, music, human services, career technical education & much more.
  • Community college courses earn similar GPA points as AP Classes.
  • Did we mention it's next to being FREE!

To The Parents . . .

Just like you, we want your child's first experience with college to be a successful one. One of the most important factors will be your support. Toward that end, it is helpful to be aware of some of the differences between high school and college.

Attendance will not be monitored in the same way as high school. If your student doesn't attend regularly, no office will call to notify you of this.

Courses are designed for adult students, and may contain information of adult nature.

You will not have access to your child's grades or records. Please read further on FERPA policy.

Instructors are not available for parent conferences.

Your student will be welcomed at the Student Health Center where they will have access to reproductive information, contraception, and other health services.

**College textbooks can be quite expensive. If you choose to purchase them any place beside the SBVC Bookstore, be sure you are purchasing the correct edition of the correct book.

While SBVC has one of the best safety records of any college in the Inland Empire, your child will be a minor in an adult environment. They should exercise caution at all times.

Your student will be responsible for all supplies associated with course, homework, papers and assignments. If they are having difficulty, they should speak with the instructor before or after class, or during the instructor's office hours.

San Bernardino Valley College has limited capacity for concurrently enrolled high school students, and there is no guarantee that you will be accepted, even if you meet the admission criteria.  SBVC also reserves the right to change or modify the admission standards for concurrently enrolled high school students.
