Dual Enrollment Courses - College Classes through Southwestern College on the CHS Campus

 swc logo              


Dual enrollment lets you earn college credit for college courses completed while you’re still in high school – and those courses also count toward your high school diploma. Dual Enrollment courses are offered to 10th-12th grades students through Southwestern College(SWC) and are held on the CHS campus. The courses are taught by a SWC professor, where the student earns college credit that meets college entrance requirements for most UC and CSU schools. Each course is worth 10 CHS credits that meets graduation requirements as well. Beginning 2021-2022, all Dual Enrollment courses will be weighted on a student's CHS transcript.
All courses attempted and the units earned will be recorded on the student's permanent record for future use toward college graduation requirements. Dual enrollment requires students to apply to SWC and complete the complex registration process. All courses are treated as such as the student is enrolled in college with all communication being between the student and professor. These courses are a great opportunity for students to get college credit and experience. 
Benefits of taking a Dual Enrollment Course:
  • Students earn weighted high school credit (same as AP) on their high school transcript
  • Students earn college credit that is transferrable to most Universities
  • This class counts as one of your 3 or 4 classes
  • Course ONLY meets three times a week during period 1
  • Fall Term - August to December
  • Spring Term - February to May
Dual Enrollment Guidelines for 2021-2022:
  • Student must be in 10th-12th grades
