Steps to Applying as a High School Student

Did you know current high school students (grades 10-12) can take classes at Mission College before they graduate? Dual enrollment students have the opportunity to earn high school and transferrable college credit at the same time by taking classes in the afternoon, evening, or during school breaks.

Students in the 9th grade or below are required to contact either Dr. Maria Escobar, Director of Enrollment Services, or Connor Keese, Student Outreach Supervisor, for enrollment approval at Mission College. Meeting with designated staff does not guarantee approval for admission. Please send a message to one of the designated individuals above to schedule an appointment.

Current or previous Mission students that are below the 9th grade, at the time of enrollment, will be grandfathered in and allowed to enroll without preapproval. These students should be directed to Admissions & Records for verification of previous enrollment.

Dual Enrollment (DE) students pay only the health fee and the rest of the classes are free! DE students are limited to a maximum of 3 courses not to exceed 8 units for each term. For more information please see the steps below:
