In order to offer our students an opportunity to earn college credits while still in High School, ESUSD is partnering with Cerro Coso Community College to offer concurrent enrollment classes. This means that students can earn both high school and college credits for the same class.
Cerro Coso enrollment fees of $46/unit are waived (up to 11 units) for K-12 students. Nonresident tuition will apply if the K-12 student is an international student, not a US citizen, not a California resident (important to note for CHS students who reside in NV), or has not lived in California for one year and one day prior to enrolling at Cerro Coso. There will be a $1 Associated Student Body Fee for all students, including concurrent students. This fee will be collected at the mandatory meeting listed below. ESUSD is currently offering to pay for textbooks. However if students drop the class the student is responsible for reimbursing the district for the price of the book.
To enroll in a Spring Class for 2016, an ESUSD student must:
a mandatory meeting on Tuesday November 8th at 6pm.
2. Have a 2.75 cumulative GPA.
3. Have an available period to take the course.
4. Take the PDEV C052-Becoming a Successful Online Student. This class only needs to be taken once and it can be completed simultaneously with their first online class.
5. Complete the Concurrent Student Release Form.
for enrollment at Cerro Coso. Students need their social security number to complete their registration. Cerro Coso staff will be on the CHS campus on Tuesday Oct. 18th to help facilitate the admission or update process during 7th period.
7. Understand that Cerro Coso and ESUSD have different policies, including drop dates and grades
a. ESUSD students have 2 weeks to make schedule changes at the beginning of each semester, which includes concurrent enrollment classes. If the student decides to drop the class after the 2 week mark, they will earn an F and zero credits for that period even though they will also be assigned another class to attend for the remainder of that semester.
b. ESUSD does not accept D’s. If a student earns a D via Cerro Coso, they will still earn an F on their HS transcript and receive zero credits for the course.
