Start earning college credit as a high school student!

Are you a high school or home-schooled student interested in academic classes being offered at Skyline College? Start taking college level courses now and earn college credit that you can apply to your degree or certificate.

The College Connection Concurrent Enrollment Program is an enrichment program designed to provide current high school students, who are enrolled in the 9th grade or above, the opportunity to get an early start on their college education. Students will receive college credit for all coursework successfully completed while still in high school, and in some courses, you can earn both high school and college credits.

5 Steps to Concurrent Enrollment

Apply to Skyline College using a California Community Colleges OpenCCC account. OpenCCC is a service of the California Community Colleges Chancellors Office. The information in your account is kept private and secure.
