Dual Enrollment Program

WVCC Building

The Los Gatos-Saratoga Union High School District (LGSUHSD) is partnering with West Valley College (WVC) to offer a Dual Enrollment Program. The Dual Enrollment Program is an amazing opportunity for high school students to take West Valley College classes for free, on a high school campus, while earning high school and college credit simultaneously.

Students can enroll in a class not offered at their home campus but need to ensure they can arrange travel to that campus and arrive on time. Even if you do not intend to enroll at WVC after graduation, the course(s) and units completed transfer to other colleges and universities. In addition, for every three college units a student enrolls in, that student earns ten units on their high school transcript. The program provides students an opportunity to earn credits towards high school graduation, explore college courses, and earn a head start on college. This program is open to students who will be sophomores, juniors, or seniors (grades 10, 11, and 12) at the time they are attending a class.
