Through our Dual Enrollment Program, you will take Delta courses at your high school campus, during the regular school day. Your classmates will be your peers from your school or district. To learn if your high school offers Dual Enrollment courses, contact your school counselor. When taking dual enrollment courses, you will earn high school and college credits. You do not pay tuition or fees and are not charged for textbooks or classroom supplies for dual enrollment classes.
You may register for any courses offered at Delta College while in high school or in adult education school, as a College Early Start student, if you meet prerequisites. You may take "regular" Delta classes on campus or online, and get a head-start in earning college credits. Each school determines whether high school credit will be granted for Delta classes. Effective Fall 2020, as a high school student, you pay no tuition or fees, but you are responsible for the cost of textbooks and class supplies.
At least 1 in 8 California high school seniors take community college courses while still in high school, an increasingly popular strategy that gives students a head start on their college careers, and has been shown to boost both high school and college graduation rates.
