Welcome To Dual Enrollment at LASC! 

The Dual Enrollment program offers local high school students free college courses on their high school campus for student convenience. The student has the potential to complete the first year of college BEFORE graduating high school.

  • Completion of LASC admissions application
  • Completion of the School/Parent Approval Form, which can be obtained from your high school's Dual Enrollment coordinator
  • Willingness to accept the rigor and content of college classes


  • Classes could be offered before, during, or after normal high school schedule
  • Student participation requires both parent and school official approval
  • Classes offered vary by semester
  • Courses are transferable to most four-year universities (UC and CSUs)
  • Many Southwest classes are open for high school students, as long as prerequisites and conditions for enrollment are met. For a complete listing, refer to LASC Course Schedule. You can see the deadlines for adding, dropping, and withdrawing from a class by clicking Current Students or New Students.
  • Note: Please ensure you know the deadlines for adding, dropping, and withdrawing from a course.

California Residents

  • For high school students, the tuition cost is waived and you are responsible only for enrollment fees and course material costs when applicable. This same rule also applies to undocumented students attending a California high school.
  • If you are taking a class that is part of a College & Career Access Pathways (CCAP) Agreement, your tuition, enrollment fees, and course material costs are all waived.

California Nonresidents

  • Per AB 2364, CA nonresident high school students do not pay the nonresident tuition fee if they are a United States citizen, a US citizen living abroad due to parental voluntary reasons, or have an eligible immigrant visa. Enrollment fees and course material costs still apply.
  • CA nonresident high school students with a non-immigrant or foreign visa pay the nonresident tuition fee, but the enrollment fees are waived.
  • Allowable units: High school students can enroll in up to 11 units for the Fall and Spring semesters, and 6 units for the Summer and Winter sessions.
  • Permanent record: Enrolling in college courses creates a college transcript.
  • Prerequisites: Not all courses offered at a LASC campus or online are available for high school students. Some have required pre-requisite classes and additional qualifications, which can be found by consulting the current class schedule or College Catalog.
  • Transferring courses to a university: Students planning to apply coursework taken at CCC toward college or university admission or progress toward a degree should contact the respective institutions regarding policies involving prior coursework.
  • Unit equivalency: The University of California recognizes college semester-length courses of 3-semester units as equivalent to 10 credits earned in an eligible one-year high school course. (Exception: The first semester of a college-level foreign language course is considered equivalent to the first two years of high school foreign language (20 credits).

Under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, students attending an institution of higher learning become an adult when it comes to their educational records at that institution. It is the policy of the Coast Community College District, in accordance with FERPA, to not release/discuss a student's records without the signed release from the student authorizing the release of that information to anyone except the student.
