Welcome to the CSUMB Dual Enrollment Program!

This unique opportunity allows high school students in specific California Districts to dive into advanced scholastic or vocational courses while still in high school. Our program is designed to enrich your educational experience without replacing your current high school curriculum. It's a perfect chance for eligible students to ease into college life, get a taste of college-level classes, and transition smoothly from high school to university.

Parents and students, rest assured that participation in this program is carefully considered by your school’s principal and requires parental consent. Once approved, students can enroll as special part-time or full-time students during any academic term. This is more than just taking advanced courses; it’s about stepping into a collegiate atmosphere early on and getting a head start on your future.
