High School Enrollment Programs

Concurrent Enrollment

Concurrent Enrollment is an enrichment program designed to provide current 9th-12th graders the opportunity to get an "early start" on their college experience and earn college credit. Enrollment fees are free for high school students who enroll in 11 units or fewer.

High school students can enroll in day or evening classes and receive college credit for course work successfully completed. Most courses are transferable to four-year colleges and universities, enabling the student to earn honors credit while fulfilling university requirements without the expense of most university programs.

Interested students must submit a Concurrent Enrollment Course Request Form (available from high school counselors, college/career centers, at CSM's Admissions & Records Office, or in the Course Enrollment Packet (link below) with the required signatures.

If you have questions, please contact us at csmconcurrent@smccd.edu.
