Chaffey College Dual Enrollment

Dual Enrollment and High School Partnership-

Chaffey College

Students can start their college journey while in high school by attending Chaffey College courses.  This means you are enrolled as BOTH a college student and a high school student at the same time.


Chaffey College offers two programs:

High School Partnership (HSP)
    • Free tuition, books, and fees
    • Limited course offerings (approximately 30 courses)
    • Asynchronous and online courses
    • Chaffey College registers students for courses after counselor approval
Dual Enrollment (non-HSP)
    • Free tuition, students pay for books and fees
    • More catalog courses offerings on the Chaffey College campus or online
    • Students register for courses on their own after counselor approval

For both options, students will complete an e-Agreement form with their high school counselor.


Benefits of taking Chaffey College Courses

  • Tuition is free.
  • Students can earn high school and college credit at the same time.
    (1 college unit = 2.5 high school credits in the Chaffey Joint Union High School District)
  • Honors points are added to a student’s gpa by the UC/CSU when applying.
  • Less time is required after high school to finish a college degree.
  • Taking college courses in high school demonstrates readiness for college curriculum, similar to the Advanced Placement (AP) program.
  • Research shows that dual enrollment students are more likely to graduate from high school and go on to earn a college degree.
  • Grades earned become part of the student’s permanent college transcript.
  • Students may explore fields of study that help them choose a major or career path.
  • Students may choose from classes not currently available at their high school.

  • be in the 9th through 12th grade;
