High School Dual Enrollment
Admissions and Records

Long Beach City College is proud to offer dual enrollment to our local high school students, allowing students the opportunity to complete college coursework while still attending high school.   Dual enrollment provides opportunity for advanced academic or vocational work for high school students capable of advanced work.  It is not intended as remedial or make-up work. Students must be currently enrolled in a K-12 school, and may enroll in up to 11 units in each Fall and Spring term, or 5 units in Winter and Summer terms. A GPA of 2.0 or better at LBCC is required to continue as a dual enrollment student.  Long Beach City College reserves the right to restrict the enrollment of high school students.
