CONCURRENT ENROLLMENT for K-12 students...earn college credit while still in high school
Please complete the following TWO items:
#1 SUBMIT ADMISSIONS APPLICATION
#2 SUBMIT "SUPPLEMENTAL APPLICATON"
Students can submit enrollment documents to the Outreach staff in SSB 415. Forms may also be submitted to Admissions & Records (Student Services Building, 2nd Floor) along with a photo ID when the Outreach staff is unavailable. An Admissions representative will then provide students with an LACCD ID # and instructions on how to register using our online system.
Enrollment Policies for K-12 students
West waives tuition for California residents enrolled in high school (maximum of 11 units per semester; 7 units during winter/summer intersessions). Students are, however, responsible for the cost of textbooks or materials. No financial aid is available to high school students.
Please be advised that:
Parent/guardians may not conduct transactions on behalf of the student.
All classes are college-level classes; not "high school-level".
All class recommendations should be made by the high school counselor or administrator. Only they can definitively state how/if West's classes are placed on the high school transcript.
