Adult High School may be your program if you answered "Yes" to any of the above questions.
Are you 16 or 17 years old?
If so, you must be released from your high school (or Education Service
District if being home schooled), before you can register in classes.
Follow the steps below before going to Orientation.
1. Pick up an Intent to Enroll Form at any COCC Campus. A college staff person will fill in COCC's portion and sign it.
Take the Intent to Enroll Form to the high school counseling office
where you attended, or take it to the school district office where you
live (or ESD if home schooling).
3. Give the staff member your
Intent to Enroll form and ask for an Exemption from Compulsory Education
form. The high school principal or building administrator must sign it
along with you and a parent.
4. Take the signed Exemption form
with you to Orientation in Bend, Redmond, or Madras, or if you live in
Prineville or Warm Springs, take it to the first day of class.
