Attend LACC while you are still in High School!

What is Dual Enrollment?

The Dual Enrollment Program is an accelerated program that allows qualified students to fulfill high school graduation requirements while simultaneously gaining college or vocational credits toward a certificate, diploma, or a college degree. Los Angeles City College offers a variety of college courses that are conveniently offered at our local high schools. Students and counselors should note that these classes should be taken by students ready for college level work.

Research has shown that Dual Enrollment classes can be used effectively to promote post-secondary education and success, expand rigor and breadth of high school curriculum, and provide access to challenging, college preparatory curriculum to students who might otherwise have been shut out of such curriculum through the traditional high school system. Classes are also open to LACC students who are willing to travel to the local high school.

The recent passage of AB288 will expand Dual Enrollment to include CCAP (career), remedial, and transfer pathways to high school students. In 2016 The Los Angeles Unified School District and the Los Angeles College District entered into a “College and Career Access Pathway Partnership" agreement. This agreement allows Dual Enrollment to include career and transfer pathways as well as some remedial classes. All AB288 classes must be part of a specific pathway and have a completed MOU from both the specific high school and LACC.

Dual Enrollment classes are scheduled through LACC Administration by request of the high school principal or college counselor, who may contact the Dual Enrollment Program for information and program application form.

Our goal is to allow High Schol students exposure to college level curriculum and prepare them for post-secondary education
