High School Dual Enrollment Students

Santa Rosa Junior College’s High School Dual Enrollment program is 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 experience. This program provides enrichment opportunities for high school students who can benefit from college level instruction.  

All college coursework is governed by the Family Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) which allows the release of academic information, including grades, to the student only – regardless of age.  Academic information is not released to parents or third parties without the consent of the student.  

HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS ENROLL FOR FREE. The $46-per-unit registration fee is waived for high school students enrolled in 11 units or fewer.  Some courses may require payment of a material fee (see course description in class schedule).  High school students are still required to pay the Student Health Services Fee, student center fee, transportation fee, course fees, and purchase their own textbooks as recommended or required for their college courses.


Each semester that a high school student attends Santa Rosa Junior College, he/she is considered a New Student and, therefore, must complete and submit the following to one of the SRJC admissions offices:

Assessment and Placement:

Assessment is required for enrollment in math and English classes. Because many classes at the college has a prerequisite for English and math, it is advisable to complete your assessment. As a high school dual enrollment student, you can complete your assessment through one of the methods below.

9th grade – 11th grade
Students who are currently in the 9th – 11th grade will need to do the  Guided Self-Placement. The guided self-placement activities will allow students to enroll in transfer-level math (9-58) or English (1a) and all other lower level courses. 9th through 11th graders who believe they have the knowledge or ability to take higher level mathematics: Math 1a or Math 4, may submit a copy of their high school transcript with the Prerequisite/Corequisite Challenge Form.

Currently in 12th grade
Students who are currently in the 12th grade will use their completed 11th grade high school records to place into a Transfer level English and math class. Please visit our  website to learn more about how your placement is calculated.

Most students who have completed 11th grade will receive an automatic placement in English and Math once they apply to SRJC. If you do not see a placement result in your SRJC Portal or find that your reported high school GPA or math coursework is wrong, you will need to update your high school records.

Course Prerequisites:

All applicants are required to fulfill course prerequisites. A prerequisite is a condition of enrollment that a student is required to meet in order to demonstrate current readiness for enrollment in a course. It is the student’s responsibility to ensure all course prerequisites are met and the Prerequisite Equivalency Form and high school transcripts are filed (if needed) prior to enrollment. The SRJC Prerequisite Equivalency Form is provided on our website at: http://admissions.santarosa.edu/forms.

The following conditions might affect or delay college admission: failure or insufficient time for application processing, placement testing, prerequisite verification, and/or limited college course offerings.
