High School Students at Columbia
NOTICE: Dual Enrollment paperwork must be approved by a high school administrator. During shelter-in-place, students and parents should sign the form and will be permitted to send it without the high school signature. However, each high school will be required to send in a list of approved students in lieu of a signature on each student form.
All high school students need to email forms to CCdualernollment@yosemite.edu

Students must satisfy all course prerequisites as defined in the current catalog and meet with a Counselor for advisement and course placement into Math and English (if 11th grade math and English has not been completed). Please call the Counseling Desk to schedule your appointment by calling 209-588-5109.
Columbia College requires a copy of your Official High School Transcript. Please contact your high school Registrar to obtain a copy. Students will be able to register for classes when all of the dual enrollment steps have been completed, including emailing your completed registration form to CCdualenrollment@yosemite.edu.
No special arrangements for additional supervision of underage students are available at Columbia College. It is the responsibility of the parent(s) to assure that their student is able to handle the college environment, as well as the content of the courses in which the student enrolls. The Yosemite Community College Board of Trustees waives the enrollment unit fee for high school students. Contact Kelsey Halstead at 209-588-5054 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about attending college as a high school student.
