Earn college credit now!

Earn college credit now!

Get a head start on college by earning college credit while you are still in high school - and California residents (and some non-residents) pay no enrollment fees!

Qualified high school students are invited to take classes and earn college credit at any of the four Los Rios Colleges (Folsom Lake, American River, Cosumnes River, and Sacramento City colleges) through our Advanced Education program. The grades earned in Advanced Education courses will be reflected on a student's permanent college transcript.

To participate, a student must:

  • Be at least 16 years old - but not yet 18 - OR have already completed the 10th grade by the first day of the college class, and be currently enrolled in a public or private high school, including home school.
  • Have a high school GPA of 2.7 or higher.

For more detailed information about eligibility, costs and other guidelines, please visit our Advanced Education page.
