Steps to Applying as a High School Student

Did you know current high school students (grades 9-12) can take classes at Mission College before they graduate? Dual enrollment students have the opportunity to earn high school and transferrable college credit at the same time by taking classes in the afternoon, evening, or during school breaks.

Dual Enrollment (DE) students pay only the health fee and the rest of the classes are free! DE students are limited to a maximum of 3 courses not to exceed 8 units for each term. For more information please see the steps below:

ASSESSMENT
Students interested in taking a class with an English, Math or Reading prerequisite must take an assessment test prior to registration to determine eligibility. Students interested in taking a course without any prerequisites no longer have to take an Assessment test. The Assessment Center located in room SEC-109 offers computerized placement tests on a “first come – first serve basis.”

Contact the Assessment Center at 408.855.5099 with any questions. See the Assessment Center current schedule for placement testing.

Minor students entering in 8th grade or below are required to contact the Vice President of Student Services for enrollment approval at Mission. Meeting with the Vice President does not guarantee approval for admission. Please send message to dual.concurrent@missioncollege.edu

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 A&R for verification of previous enrollment.
