Dual Enrollment

Dual Enrollment
  • Campbell Union High School District (CUHSD)
  • Los Gatos–Saratoga Union High School District (LGUHSD)
  • Dual Enrollment (DE) is a program for Campbell Union High School District (CUHSD) and Los Gatos–Saratoga Union High School District (LGUHSD) sophomores, juniors and seniors to earn college credit (students may also receive high school credit). Students enroll in college classes at their home high school.
  • The classes offered are WVC classes and are taught at the college level.
  • Students do not pay enrollment fees.
  • Books and classroom materials will be supplied by CUHSD.
  1. Complete an online application. (Students who were in the DE program in the fall are required to complete a new application).
    1. Create an OpenCCCApply account. You will receive a CCC ID# (ex: AF861972) via email; this is not your College ID#. Your CCC ID# will give you access to the online application.
    2. Using your CCC ID#, log into OpenCCCApply through the application page and complete the West Valley College Application.
    3. Within 5 minutes – 2 hours, you will receive your West Valley College ID# (ex: G08100081) via email. Save this number in a place you can easily access it. You will need this number moving forward.
      • If you do not receive your ID number, email the WVC Admissions Office at wvc.admissionsFREEWEST_VALLEY – please include your name, confirmation number, birthdate and photo ID.
  2. Read and complete the Dual Enrollment Application Packet.
  3. Review the Dual Enrollment packet with your parent and have your parent sign to approve your enrollment.
  4. Meet with your high school counselor to have your course(s) approved.
    • Your counselor will review your application packet and attach an unofficial high school transcript.
  5. A WVC representative will collect the completed Dual Enrollment forms, enroll students, and send an enrollment confirmation.
  6. Incomplete Dual Enrollment Packets will not be accepted.
  • Review and become familiar with all WVC deadlines, as the classes are taught on the WVC Academic Calendar.
  • Grades earned in a Dual Enrollment course will become part of the student’s permanent college transcript.
  • If a student is sick, the student is responsible for alerting the faculty member. It is not the high school’s responsibility. Faculty will outline attendance policy during the first day of the class and, in the syllabus.
  • In order to drop a course, students should contact the DE Lead.

High School Students with Disabilities Enrolled in College Courses

High School students with disabilities who are enrolled in college courses register with the West Valley College Disability and Educational Support Program (DESP) to request reasonable accommodations for their college course by following the steps below.

A key difference between how accommodations are implemented in college courses versus high school courses is the degree of initiative required of the high school student enrolled in college courses. High school students follow the steps below to complete an Academic Accommodation Plan in an interactive discussion with a DESP counselor. Students then must request the accommodations that they wish to implement in their courses. This is done every semester in which students are enrolled in West Valley College courses. Instructors are then notified of their students’ approved accommodations. Certain accommodations such as alternative testing require that the student log on to DESP Online Services to schedule quizzes and tests.*

*If college courses are offered at locations other than the main campus, accommodations may be arranged directly with the instructor. DESP counselors will discuss options with students during their intake meeting.

  1. Complete online registration
  2. Upload documentation of disability, eg IEP, 504, physician’s verification
  3. Make appointment with a DESP counselor to complete program registration. 408-741-2010
  4. Request approved accommodations for your course
  5. If you and your instructor agree that you will take your exams in the DESP Test Center, schedule your test.

The DESP office is located in the Student Services building. Their phone number is (408) 741-2010 (voice) or (408) 741-2658 (TTY).
