High School Student

You are a High School Student if you are currently in high school and ready to take college credit at the same time.
Follow these steps if you plan to take classes on a COCC Campus while still in high school.

Central Oregon high school students 15 years and older* are eligible to register in up to 19 credits per term at COCC.

  • Students are fully responsible for complying with all the policies and procedures of the College as outlined in the "Information for High School Students" sheet.
  • Although members of the College staff can provide academic advising, they cannot interpret high school requirements or act in a supervisory role

*Note: Students under the age of 15 can take up to two COCC classes per term. Students must complete a Special Admission for Students Under the Age of 15 form (pdf).

Welcome! We're happy you're here. Getting started at COCC is easy and we're here to help you succeed! Just follow these steps and you'll be on the path to a great education.

Have questions? Watch an overview of your enrollment steps or sign up for an optional Getting Started Appointment where an Admissions Coordinator will support you through the COCC enrollment process. (Important: this is not academic advising & you will not be registering for classes at this appointment).
