High School Students

San Diego City, Mesa and Miramar Colleges offer eligible high school students the opportunity to earn college credit that can be applied towards associate degrees, certificates, and/or transfer requirements to a four-year college/university.  When high school students enroll in college classes in addition to their high school studies, this is called concurrent enrollment.

High school students requesting concurrent enrollment may be admitted as "Special Part-Time" High School Students or "Joint Diploma" High School Students, subject to specific requirements.
