Dual Enrollment Students
Take college courses while enrolled in high school

Post

Through dual enrollment, Long Beach City College is pleased to offer high school/K-12 students the opportunity to accelerate in their college and career pathways by earning college credit before completing high school. Dual enrollment provides opportunities for advanced academic or vocational work for high school students and is not intended as remedial or makeup work.

Students must be currently enrolled in a K-12 school and may enroll in up to 11 units in each Fall and Spring semester, or 5 units in Winter and Summer semesters. A GPA of 2.0 or better at LBCC is required to continue as a dual enrollment student. Please note that Long Beach City College reserves the right to restrict the enrollment of high school students.

There are two different tracks for high school students who wish to enroll at LBCC.

Individual Dual Enrollment  

Individual dual enrollment is for high school students desiring to enroll at LBCC on their own and outside of a coordinated program between LBCC and the K-12 district/high school. Individual dual enrollment students may enroll in any available course if all course assessment and pre-requisite requirements are met.
