Dual Enrollment - Leigh & West Valley

 
 
 
 
Earn college credits through your high school campus
 
Beginning in fall 2018, West Valley College (WVC) partnered with the Campbell Union High School District (CUHSD) in a Dual Enrollment Program.  The Dual Enrollment Program is an amazing opportunity where high school students in the Campbell Union High School District can take West Valley College classes for free while earning high school and college credit simultaneously.  Please read on for more information and how to apply.
  • The courses West Valley College is offering through this Dual Enrollment Program are taught only to students in the Campbell Union High School District. 
  • Typically, WVC instructors come to your high school and you take a class as a college student. As we all are still sheltering in place, our courses for Fall 2021 will be offered entirely in the synchronous online modality (i.e. with scheduled days and times).
  • Even if you do not intend to enroll at WVC after graduation, the course(s) and the units completed transfer to other colleges and universities.  
  • For every three college units a student enrolls in, that student earns ten units on their high school transcript.  
  • The program provides students an opportunity to make up credits needed for high school graduation, explore college courses, and earn a head start on college.  
  • This program is open to students that will be sophomores, juniors, and seniors (grades 10, 11, and 12) by September 2021.
  • Students are on the WVC calendar. For this upcoming fall semester, the courses start on September 7 and end on December 14.  That is just over three months!  Some holidays may differ between WVC and CUHSD.
  • Courses students complete, and grades earned, remain on the student’s permanent college transcript.  Students can use these units towards high school graduation, towards a WVC degree or certificate, and at other colleges and universities attended in the future.
