Programs for High School Students

Advanced Placement of High School Students

CCC accepts for college credit, Advanced Placement (AP) courses taken in high school through the College Entrance Examination Board’s Advanced Placement Program, provided that the student scores a minimum of 3 on the test. Official scores should be submitted to the Admissions Office for consideration. When credit is awarded, it is entered on the student’s college transcript, but the grade is not included in the college grade point average.

High School Partnership Program

This program provides the opportunity for high school juniors and seniors to get a head start on their college experience while still in high school. Students are allowed to take a maximum of two college courses each semester they are enrolled in the program. Tuition and fees are waived for the program; however students are responsible for the cost of books and supplies associated with the course(s).
