• Valley Now! program application deadlines will differ from the traditional SBVC deadlines. However, course dates and deadlines are as listed in the most current Schedule of Classes.

    It is advantageous to submit applications as soon as possible in order to have the best possibility to get into a class, as well as to allow time to resolve any issues. Any student wishing to enroll in a class that has already started must first get an Instructor Approval Code before registering online prior to the census date. Important course dates and deadlines can be found on your student Registration Statement.

  • We begin to accept Concurrent Enrollment Petitions and applications well in advance of the start of the following semester. Contact us for those specific dates and deadlines. 

  • Maybe. All freshmen and sophomore students who have applied to SBVC and have met all requirements, must submit a Petition for Academic Exception. This petition will go before a committee for approval. You will be notified about the petition's status via your SBVC student email account, which was created for you when you applied. If approved, you may participate in the Valley Now! program.

  • Unfortunately, no. SBVC and the Valley Now! program require a 2.0 or higher cumulative GPA to participate.

  • Yes. If you are currently enrolled in a California high school or a high school equivalency program, then you may apply to Valley Now!.

  • Please submit your signed and completed paperwork to the Valley Now! team. Please review your information for completeness before submitting.

  • SBVC requires official transcripts. Transcripts must be current, show all high school coursework, and come directly from the school. If a student has attended multiple high schools, then all official transcripts are required. We will not accept printouts from student portals or report cards.

  • San Bernardino Valley College offers services to students with disabilities through our Disabled Student Programs and Services Office (DSPS). Students should contact them directly to get more information. Please click the link located on this page to access their web page.

  • Once we have reviewed your application packet and determined everything is in complete, you will be notified by your site contact or receive an email from us telling you for which courses you were approved. Generally speaking, students who meet the eligibility requirements are admitted to the Valley Now! program, but not necessarily to the specific courses you want.

  • You may only enroll in any courses for which you are eligible and approved. These classes must be listed on your Concurrent Enrollment Petition form. High school students are also limited to a specific number of units per term. 

  • Because of state law restrictions, concurrent enrollment students will be assigned an enrollment appointment on the last day of our enrollment priority cycle, after other SBVC students have enrolled. As a result, some courses may be full. If you are unable to enroll in a specific class, you may go to the first day of class and ask the instructor if he/she can give you an "Instructor Authorization Code" to add the class. You will need to use this code to register for your class before the add date passes. Please review our Class Schedule for more information.

  • You will enroll online through the student portal, WebAdvisor. Please review the Class Schedule for more information regarding specific courses.

  • No. You only need to take it once to determine your placement. Results are valid for two years.

  • Many high schools offer credit for our courses. Please see your school counselor for specific details.

  • Given that you have signed a Release of Information Form consenting to share information with your school district, we will send out official transcripts to your school district once semester grades are posted.
