What is Dual Enrollment?
If you are a high school student and you've completed the 9th grade, you can take college courses at Mission College and begin earning college credit while you're still in high school!
Enrollment fees are waived for Dual Enrollment students, making it an excellent way to save money, explore your academic interests, and experience college-level studies.

Dual Enrollment Policies
- Dual enrollment registration typically begins three (3) weeks prior to the starts of the semester/session.
- All dual enrollment students are required to submit the Dual Enrollment Form online.
- Students may only register for Mission College 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.
- If a class is full, students may add themselves to the waitlist for the next available space in the course. Should space in the class become available students will be notified via email and have 48 hours from the time the notification is sent to register online. Once the 48 hours have passed if a student has not registered the seat will be offered to the next student on the list.
- A maximum of 8.0 units (including waitlisted courses) is permitted for the Summer 2023 term. Beginning Fall 2023 a maximum of 11.0 units is permitted for each full term (including Summer and Winter sessions.)
- Kinesiology courses with an activity component and 900-level courses are not eligible for Dual Enrollment.
- Students who miss the first day of class may be dropped from the class. However, it is your responsibility to drop classes online by the published deadline should you choose to no longer attend the class(es).
- Review the class schedule to ensure you meet all Academic Deadlines.
- Students are expected to conduct themselves in a responsible manner – see “Code of Student Conduct” (missioncollege.edu, “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
- These 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, Director of Outreach & Student Development, to request an exception.
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.)
