About the High School Dual Enrollment Program
The High School Dual Enrollment program at Oxnard College allows eligible students to enroll in college courses and earn college credit with the possibility of earning high school credit simultaneously. Participating students not only get a “taste” of college, but also get a head start on their college career and save money. Students complete assignments in the same manner as “regularly” admitted students and are given a final grade that is posted on their Oxnard College official college transcript.
Dual Enrollment (K-12) Students can register for courses online! Submit your Dual Enrollment Forms early to obtain approval to register online on your registration date.
