Concurrent Enrollment

EAOP and DCAC are excited to bring back our Concurrent Enrollment program. This year, we are partnering with community colleges around the Bay Area to offer our 10th and 11th-grade students the opportunity to enroll in spring courses. This will allow our students to build a competitive college application profile. In addition to the enrolled course, students will attend skill-building seminars focused on navigating college resources, financial literacy and honing professional development and networking skills to successfully transition to college. Students will select from a list of transferable courses that will appear on official transcripts to be reported on college applications. 

Program Dates and Location

EAOP and DCAC will host a student and family orientation in early December and college courses will take place from January through May based on the selected course(s). The course location will vary depending on the community college and individual courses. Supplemental mandatory academic skill-building seminars will take place on six Saturdays through the spring semester at the UC Berkeley or San Jose City College campus (New LOCATION).
