  • Before proceeding with this step, make sure to complete Steps 1 – Step 3 of the admission process.

    Start by completing the Dual Enrollment Student Contact Questionnaire using the below link. 

    This form will confirm you have completed the above admission steps and gather contact information for you and a parent/guardian needed to launch the electronic Dual Enrollment Special Admission Form. 

    FA2021 Dual Enrollment Student Contact Questionnaire

    Within 2 business days of submitting your Student Contact Questionnaire, you will receive a separate email from Enrollment Services <adobesign@adobesign.com> to the email address provided on the Student Contact Questionnaire. The email will have a subject line of “Signature requested on “Fall 2021 Dual Enrollment Special Admission Form”. Please complete the required fields and digitally sign the form.

    The form will automatically forward to your parent/guardian’s email address you provided on the Student Contact Questionnaire to obtain their signature. The form will then be automatically forwarded to your high school for signatures from a counselor and principal (or designee).

    Once completed, all parties will receive an email from College of the Canyons <adobesign@adobesign.com> with the subject line “Completed: Fall 2021 Dual Enrollment Special Admission Form” and a copy of the completed form for your records.

    The College will then proceed with processing your form for enrollment.

  • The Early College Program will register you into the dual enrollment course upon completion of the admission process and confirmation by your high school.

    We expect to complete dual enrollment registration by May 21.

    During the week of May 24, you will receive an enrollment confirmation email from earlycollege@canyons.edu. This email will contain your course meeting information, instructor contact information and link to their orientation letter, information about the textbook (if required), and available student support services and resources designed to help you succeed. You will also be able to view your class schedule in your My Canyons student account.

  • Many courses use an Open Educational Resources (OER) Textbook which is educational material available online.  For courses that use a textbook, you will be able to check out the textbook through your high school library prior to the start of your class.  Additional information will be provided to you in August. 
  • For all FALL 2021 courses, it is very important that you read the instructor’s ORIENTATION LETTER for each class you register for, in order to be aware of the type of class you're in. Read your Instructor's orientation letter for information about their class, such as their required textbooks(s), instructional materials, important dates, or other course requirements.

    You may find yourself using Canvas for the first time.  Explore our Canvas Guides to learn how to navigate and be successful in your online classroom.

    Visit the Online Student Support page to find a list of available student resources and software to help with the transition to online learning.

  • If you have a disability, IEP and/or 504, you may be eligible for accommodations through our Disabled Students Program & Services (DSPS) office.  It is the student’s responsibility to contact DSPS prior to the start of the semester for evaluation and approval of eligible and appropriate accommodations to a college course. 

    Students seeking services through DSPS will need to:

    • Complete and submit the DSPS Application for Services
    • Submit a current IEP/Psycho Ed Report
    • Schedule an appointment with DSPS counselor to review accommodations

    Note: Students are required to submit a college application prior to submitting documentation to DSPS.
