Notice To All Applicants

Special Part-Time Admission (Concurrent Enrollment of High School Students)
Concurrent Enrollment, Special Admission Part-time Students—High School Student (HS): This program is a partnership between Evergreen Valley College and local area high schools. Under this program students may attend Evergreen Valley College as a special part-time student. Students may take courses to supplement their high school education program. Basic skills courses are NOT available to concurrently enrolled students. Concurrent Enrollment is designed for students who can benefit from advanced academic and vocational courses. The high school principal, or designee, decides which student qualifies to participate by completing the Concurrent Enrollment Form (R40). This form identifies the specific college courses that may be taken. Students may enroll in up to 11 units although it is highly recommended that students take no more than 6 units in a semester.
- Students must complete a Concurrent Enrollment Packet that includes an application and an “Attendance for Special Part-Time High School Students” (R-40) form. The R-40 should:
- Be signed by your high school principal or another designated official.
- Be signed by the parent/legal guardian.
- Indicate the specific courses that they have been approved to register.
- Provide high school transcript for multiple measures assessment (placement) by the college counselor. Growing evidence indicates that school transcripts and non-cognitive variables greatly improve the accuracy of the initial placement process. Students are encouraged to utilize their high school transcript in lieu of taking the placement test when completing the matriculation process. To schedule a multiple measures assessment with a counselor, please call (408)270-6475.
Take an Assessment Test to determine which English and Math classes you will start. To schedule an assessment test, please call (408) 274-7900 ext. 6636.
Please have your student ID ready and a photo ID on your placement test day. It is strongly recommended that you take steps to prepare for the assessment test as those scores will help place you in the appropriate Math and English courses.
- Register for coursework in person at Admissions and Records.
Note: High school students must submit an admissions application and a new R-40 form each term they enroll. Students are encouraged to submit their admission application and R-40 one month prior to their scheduled registration date.
- Concurrently enrolled students may not enroll in more than 11 units (Students are strongly recommended to NOT enroll for more than 6 units in a semester. High school students approved to take more than 11 units will be responsible for paying full fees as a regular student.
Other Important Facts for Concurrent Enrollment Students:
- They are considered adults with regard to their records; all records are confidential unless released by the student and are protected by regulations of the Federal Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).
- They must identify EVC as a college attended on all future college applications, and include a transcript of EVC work where required.
- They are held to the same standards as regular students in terms of class conduct and course requirements.
- They will need to request transcripts for their high schools if EVC units will be used to fulfill high school graduation requirements. Any courses taken at EVC will appear on your permanent academic record.

- They may not register for courses not listed on an approved R-40 form. Additional R-40 forms may be required.
- Courses completed at their high schools do not guarantee adequate preparation for college level courses; assessment and/or SAT/AP scores may be used to determine placement levels.
