College NOW!

College NOW! is a special admissions program that allows high school juniors and seniors to take college level classes while benefitting from having enrollment fees waived.

Grades K-10

Students in grades K-10 may be admitted if identified at the "genius level" through the WISC (Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children) test. A student identified as a genius would be a student in K-10 who has a score of 150 or higher on the most current version of the WISC test. Those students meeting this criteria should contact the Admissions & Records office for more information.

Grades 11-12

Eleventh and 12th grade high school students who wish to take College of the Canyons classes must complete the steps below. College Now! students attending part-time may not enroll in more than 11.0 units per term and are exempt from paying unit enrollment fees. All other term fees, including non-resident tuition fees, must be paid at the time of registration. College Now! students who want to attend College of the Canyons full-time must be released from high school to do so. This means the student will be attending College of the Canyons full-time and not attending high school for the entire term. If a high school student is approved by their high school to attend full time, the student must pay the enrollment fee for all units.
