Dual Enrollment Policies
  1. Dual enrollment registration typically begins three (3) weeks prior to the starts of the semester/session. Exact dates are listed below.

  2. All dual enrollment students are required to submit the Dual Enrollment Form via email.

  3. Students may only register for courses that have been approved by their high school principal or designee. All substitutions must be approved by the high school designee and re-submitted through a new Dual Enrollment form to Admissions & Records.

  4. If a class is full, students will be added to the waitlist for the next available open seat. Should space in the class become available, students will be notified via their WVMCCD email and have 48 hours from the time the notification is sent to register either online or in person. Once the 48 hours have passed if you have not registered, the seat will be offered to the next student on the list.

  5. A maximum of 3 courses not to exceed 8.0 units (including waitlisted courses) is permitted for each full term (including Summer or Winter sessions).

  6. Kinesiology and 900-level courses are not eligible for Dual Enrollment.

  7. Students who miss the first day of class may be dropped from the class. However, it is your responsibility to drop classes either online or in person by the published deadline should you choose to no longer attend the class(es).

  8. Review the Schedule of Classes ( “Schedule & Catalog”) to ensure you meet all Academic Deadlines.

  9. Students are expected to conduct themselves in a responsible manner – see “Code of Student Conduct” (, “Schedule & Catalog”).
Students in the 9th Grade or Below

Mission College admits a limited number of students below the 10th grade to participate in the Dual Enrollment Program. Such students often exhibit the highest levels of scholastic achievement, a desire to further challenge themselves academically, and the maturity to fully engage in college coursework.

Students who feel they meet the criteria above  are required to schedule a meeting with Connor Keese, Student Outreach Supervisor, to request an exception to  participate in the Dual Enrollment program at Mission College. Please note meeting with designated staff does not guarantee approval for admission.

Students should provide prior to this meeting:

  • Completed Dual Enrollment Form signed by designated school official
  • Unofficial copies of high school and/or middle school transcripts
  • Any additional documentation to support the student's request (e.g. outside coursework, achievements, etc.)
Current Mission students below 9th grade

Current or previous Mission students that are below the 9th grade, at the time of enrollment, will be grandfathered in and allowed to enroll without preapproval. These students should be directed to Admissions & Records for verification of previous enrollment.
