Important Information about the Impact of Budget Reductions
Due to reductions from the state regarding the number of students community colleges can serve this coming academic year, we are not permitting concurrently enrolled high school students to attend Spring or Summer 2014.
- 1. APPLY, APPLY, APPLY!
Apply online or by the deadline date to ensure you receive critical services in time for the start of the semester. Be sure that you answer questions appropriate to the time you plan to attend. Keep in mind:
- If taking a course at the college, or a Personal Growth class while in high school, you are considered a current high school student.
- If you graduate prior to entering college, you are considered a new student.
Students must ensure that the college Admissions Office has a current address and email on file.
Do you have a Picture ID?
Picture ID cards are mandatory and required at all times while on campus to conduct college business or upon request of staff. Picture ID cards will be issued in the Admissions Office at no charge to first-time, returning and continuing students who have not previously received a picture ID card and who have registered and paid their tuition fees. There is a $5 charge for replacement picture ID cards.
Class confirmations will only be sent via email.
Students with a valid email address will receive their confirmation of classes via email. Students who do not have a valid email address may print a copy of their schedule on Reg-e

To qualify as a California resident you must verify physical presence in California and intent to become a resident one year prior to the residency determination date (the day before classes begin for a new term). The one-year period begins when you are not only present in California, but also have demonstrated clear intent to become a resident of California.
