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.

Dual Enrollment Policies
  1. Dual enrollment registration typically begins three (3) weeks prior to the starts of the semester/session. Exact dates are listed below.

  2. All dual enrollment students are required to submit the Dual Enrollment Form either via email or in-person to the Office of Admissions & Records at Mission College.

  3. Students may only register for courses that have been approved by their high school principal or designee. All substitutions must be approved by the high school designee and re-submitted through a new Dual Enrollment form to Admissions & Records.

  4. If a class is full, students will be added to the waitlist for the next available open seat. Should space in the class become available, students will be notified via their WVMCCD email and have 48 hours from the time the notification is sent to register either online or in person. Once the 48 hours have passed if you have not registered, the seat will be offered to the next student on the list.

  5. A maximum of 3 courses not to exceed 8.0 units (including waitlisted courses) is permitted for each full term (including Summer or Winter sessions).
