College Within the High School Admission
High School Sophomores, Juniors, & Seniors... Take college level classes at your high school!
You can earn transferable college credits by taking college classes at your high school!
Classes run for 15 weeks and are scheduled before, during, or after the school day or on Saturday. Syllabi and instructional materials are the same as classes taught at BC3.
If your high school offers the program and you have the following cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA), you qualify for CWHS:
- Sophomores - 3.25
- Juniors - 3.00
- Seniors - 2.75
Steps to enroll
- Check with your guidance counselor or career and technology center to see if your high school offers the CWHS program.
- Complete a CWHS application and registration form available at your high school or career and technology center. Returning students who have already applied only need to complete a registration form.
*Students must obtain approval from BC3 and the school district to participate.
