High School Students
High school students who will be attending DVC prior to graduation from high school are considered concurrently enrolled. These students need special permission from parents and their high school principal to attend DVC. High school students are exempt from enrollment fees, but will be charged student union and materials fees.
High school students, like all other students, should submit an application for enrollment at least two weeks prior to registration. Apply to DVC online though OpenCCC .
FERPA-Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act
FERPA mandates that while minor high school students attend college, they are considered regular college students, and the privacy of their educational records is protected. Only the student has a right to their academic record. We will not release student information to parents without the prior written consent of the student.
Special Admissions Recommendation Form
All high school students must submit the Special Admissions Recommendation form, also called a concurrent enrollment form. This must be submitted each semester. The form should be filled out by the high school principal or designee with the courses the student wishes to take and must be signed by the student, parent and high school principal. Signed forms with no courses listed will not be accepted by the Admissions Office. Present the completed form at the time of enrollment. Please review your grade category below for instructor signature requirements.
Students entering the 9th and 10th grades cannot pre-register for classes. These students must attend the first class session and request the instructor’s signature to add into the class. The instructor must sign the special admissions recommendation form. Bring this form to the Admissions and Records office to register in person. The student must show photo ID.
Students entering the 11th and 12th grades may register for classes prior to the first class session. Please see the calendar of events in the Schedule of Classes for registration dates. Bring the completed special admissions recommendation form to the Admissions and Records office to register in person. The student must show photo ID.
Seniors graduating before the start of term are not considered concurrently enrolled and do not need to submit a special admissions recommendation form. They should follow the same enrollment and registration steps as regular incoming students.
Students should be aware of course prerequisite requirements as listed in the Schedule of Classes and Catalog. Prerequisites cannot be waived. Please review our prerequisite procedure.
