Community College Request for Course Credit

Students at Tustin Connect are permitted to earn college credit while concurrently enrolled at high school with no fee.  In order to do so, the course must not be currently offered at Tustin Connect, and the student must be enrolled in at least 4 classes at Tustin Connect and 1 or 2 classes at the local Community College to maintain full time status and be eligible to take advantage of this opportunity.   This is recommended for juniors and/or seniors.  Keep in mind that 1 college class = 10 high school credits. It is important to consult our school counselor prior to taking any classes to insure which courses will count toward graduation and/or support your college application.  Prior to submitting approval, please be sure to complete this form and return pages 3 and 4 to the counselor/principal prior to requesting or with approval request.  If you need help with applying, check out this step by step guide.
