Dual Enrollment Program

Dual Enrollment

Welcome to the College of the Canyons Dual Enrollment Program.  The Dual Enrollment Program helps high school students to get a jump start on college by earning college and high school credit at no cost. In addition to saving time and money, dual enrollment courses help prepare students for the rigors of college level studies. 

What is Dual Enrollment?

Through our partnership with the William S. Hart Union High School District, College of the Canyons offers courses at participating high schools that allow qualified students to earn college and high school credit while meeting high school graduation requirements.  Dual enrollment courses are offered during the regular high school day, currently during period 1 or period 7 and are restricted to high school juniors and seniors, with the exception of Castaic High School's iCAN Academy (Board Policy 5010). Dual enrollment students may not enroll in more than 15.0 units per semester. 

  • ​Earn college credit toward a degree, certificate and/or transfer credit to a four-year college/university while attending high school.
  • Explore career fields and pathways prior to college.
  • Build self confidence in college level rigor and eases the transition from high school to college.
  • Save money and tuition on textbooks - this program is completely FREE!

Student Benefits
