High School Students

Sacramento City 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 and grades are posted on official college transcripts. 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 Sacramento City College and/or transfer to a four-year college or university. Directions on how to enroll are posted at
