OPTION 1 Take Courses to Earn a College Degree or Certificate / Transfer to a University

If you’re working toward a degree or certificate, intend to register for six or more credits, or have applied for financial aid, you must complete the admission process. As a fully admitted student, you will be eligible for priority registration as either a full-time or part-time student and be considered for federal financial aid, if you apply. Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis. For all programs, the college reserves the right to give higher priority to district residents.

OPTION 3Complete Your High School Diploma / Earn a GED

Our Pre-College Program offers multiple options for students 16 and older looking to complete their high school diploma in an environment and structure that works for their needs and schedule.

We also provide programs for adult students wishing to earn their GED®. GED® is a great option for students who didn’t finish high school but may have the knowledge and skills comparable to a high school graduate. Preparation classes are offered to build your skills and test with confidence.
