What is Dual Enrollment?
Dual Enrollment classes are offered as a partnership between a community college and a high school district. Currently, HBUHSD is partnered with Golden West College to offer a select number of community college classes that allow a student to earn high school credits (for graduation) and earn college units. Classes are offered at HBUHSD sites or at the Golden West Campus. Classes for the next term will be publicized at the school site. Please see guidance specialist or school counselor for more information.
