GUIDELINES FOR STUDENTS WHO ARE IN MIDDLE SCHOOL

Santa Rosa Junior College’s Concurrent Enrollment program is designed for students in the 9th-12th grades. Students currently enrolled in grades 8 and under are ineligible for SRJC’s High School Concurrent Enrollment Program. However, if you want to appeal this policy due to an exceptional need, the following are provided as guidelines:In order to be considered for enrollment, the following steps must be completed:

STEP 1: Complete a Middle School Enrollment Student Information Sheet AND a Petition to Waive College Regulations (both available online).

STEP 2: Acquire a letter of recommendation to support your enrollment at SRJC. This letter should be written by your school principal and/or counselor and should verify that an exceptional need for a specific course exists and that the student possesses exceptional intelligence/talent, motivation and maturity commensurate with college level standards.

STEP 3: You must support your request by providing verification of your ability to be successful in the class you wish to enroll in; e.g. test scores, grade reports, etc.

STEP 4: Fill out an Application for Admission (online).  NOTE: If you are currently under the age of 13, come to the Admissions and Records Office to apply.

STEP 5: Fill out a High School Concurrent Enrollment Form (available online). This form must be signed by the student, parent and principal or counselor at the student’s school. It may be necessary at some point to acquire the SRJC Department Chair and/or the instructor’s signature. (A new High School Concurrent Enrollment Form and Application for Admissions must be submitted each semester of enrollment.)

STEP 6: After steps 1-5 are completed and submitted as a packet to Admissions and Records, the Director of Admissions and Enrollment will make a decision on a case-by-case basis. Students must meet the prerequisite requirements of the course before enrolling.  Students may need to complete an assessment test before the Director makes a final decision.


Please keep in mind that students enrolled through SRJC’s High School Concurrent Enrollment Program are held accountable for all standards of grading, rules and regulations regardless of age or grade level.
