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.
ENROLLMENT REQUIREMENTS FOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS:
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:

In person with a registration card beginning the day that Open Registration begins for the semester in which the student is applying.
Assessment and Placement:
Placement Testing: Placement Testing is required for enrollment in math or English classes. Because many classes at the college recommend English placement level at English 100, it is advisable to take the English placement test to help you decide if you are ready to take college-level courses even if not planning to take math or English courses.
Consult the Schedule of Classes or the SRJC Web site (www.santarosa.edu) for test dates and times, or student may call Assessment Services at (707) 527-4661 in Santa Rosa, or (707) 778-3908 in Petaluma.
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.
Code of Conduct/Academic Standards:
Dual enrolled students are expected to complete all course requirements, maintain a 2.0 grade point average or better in all college courses, and adhere to SRJC’s Code of Conduct (refer to the College Catalog and/or Student Handbook).
Official withdrawal is the responsibility of the student. A student who does not officially withdraw may receive a penalty grade. Details on these policies are in the class schedule.
Limitations on Enrollment:
High school dual enrolled students may enroll up to 11 units in the Fall and Spring semesters and 6 units in the summer term. Students who wish to take more than 6 units in the Summer term must file a Petition for Waiver of College Regulations. The petition should include the following documentation: A high school transcript, and a letter from their high school counselor on high school letterhead indicating the student's ability to succeed in 6+ units in the Summer term.
There is limited enrollment in Kinesiology (formally Physical Education) activity classes for high school dual enrollment students. Only 10% of the total class seats available may be high school dual enrollment students. (Example: Total class seats = 40; high school dual enrollment total allowed= 4 students). This 10% limit applies to all semesters at SRJC, including summer term.
Dual enrolled high school students may not enroll in any English 300 level courses. However, high school students may enroll in English 100 through English 1A, provided placement scores allow enrollment and pre-requisites have been met.
Summer term only: Pursuant to Education Code 48800(d)(1), for any particular grade level, a principal of a high school may not recommend for community college summer term more than 5% of the total number of students who completed that grade level (9th, 10th, 11th, 12th) immediately prior to the time of recommendation.
