Advanced Education

Advanced Education

Cosumnes River College encourages 11th and 12th grade students (and other high school students under special conditions) to enroll for advanced educational enrichment with the approval of their principal/counselor and parent/guardian. High school students may take up to 6 units or two classes. California residents are exempt from enrollment fees, but not from books/material costs. Fees for non-residents still apply.

Concurrently enrolled high school students earn college credit and get a jumpstart on classes that may apply toward a certificate or degree at Cosumnes River College and/or transfer to a four-year college or university.

College Counselor Approval:

The process to obtain Counselor Approval has changed! Turn in your completed Advanced Education packet including the materials listed below to the Counseling Center or your CRC Outreach representative for processing.

  2. High School transcripts
  3. Assessment results
  4. Typed Statement explaining how you meet the criteria for Advanced Education
  5. Documentation of age ( if Home Schooled or not reflected on high school transcript )
  6. If the application was not signed by your school principal, include the list of authorized designees provided to you by the individual that signed the application on behalf of the principal
  7. Private School Affidavit (if appropriate ).

Because the Priority 3 registration period does not begin until May 17, 2018, we will collect packets but may not process them until we are closer to the start of Priority 3. Once approved or denied, the Counseling Center will call students with a status update.

If you have been denied by a CRC Counselor, you can file a petition with the Dean of Counseling and Student Services. Start by downloading and completing an Advanced Education Petition. Completed Petitions and Advanced Education packets can be dropped off at the Dean's Office in L-217.


In person only, submit completed Advanced Education packet and H.S. transcripts to the Admissions and Records office during Priority 3 (check eServices after April 16, 2018, select "Enrollment Appointment" to find your day to enroll in-person only), or open registration periods. Keep in mind that the Admissions and Records office is open M-Th 8:00am-6:00pm; and Friday 8:00am-4:30pm.

No remedial classes will be offered. For most classes, students must have a minimum 2.7 GPA. Some other restrictions may apply.
