Get Started

Welcome to Shasta College! We're excited to have you join our community. Here are a few things to help you move forward:

  • Concurrently enrolled students are high school students taking college courses at a Shasta College campus or online. Concurrently enrolled students do not pay any tuition for classes, but are responsible for Student Health and Campus fees.
  • Dual enrolled students are high school students who take college courses at their local high school. Dual enrolled students do not pay any of the following: Registration (tuition), Health and Campus Center fees. 

The High School & Below Application process is for Concurrent Enrollment. If you're interested in Dual Enrollment, please visit our Dual Enrollment website.


Concurrent Enrollment Preparation Guides​


Concurrent Enrollment

Apply for Admission

Apply to Shasta College through CCC Apply (you only need to apply once). 

Complete the Concurrent Form

Complete the Concurrent Enrollment Form (PDF) with all signatures including: student, parent/legal guardian and school principal or designee. Students may obtain a signature from either the middle school or high school principal designee. (Please ensure you also complete the Shasta College yellow registration form if you're registering in person.)

Pro Tip: Here's a few definitions to help answer the grade level question.

  • 11th and 12th grade students ​are defined as any student who has received final grades from 11th or 12th grade. For example, 11th grade students are considered 10th grade if they have not received grades, yet, for their 11th grade classes.
  • 9th and 10th grade students ​are defined as any student who has not yet completed their first semester of 11th grade. Students can still benefit from priority registration dates. 
  • 8th grade and below students are defined as any student who has ​not yet completed their first semester of 9th grade. Students can still benefit from the priority registration dates. 
  • Proxy is defined as a person who is authorized to perform transactions on behalf of the student. This section must be signed on the concurrent registration form if t​he student wishes to utilize​ this portion.

    Please Note: The proxy on the concurrent form is only valid for that specific transaction. If a student wants their parent/guardian to have access to their academic or financial information without their presence, the Release of Information form must be completed. The form is available under Verification Requests in Admissions & Registration | Forms for Students.

Course Clearances

Students must meet with a Shasta College counselor if the course(s) they wish to take require a prerequisite clearance. To prepare for your appointment, please make sure to have the following materials with you (if required).

For Transcripts: Students can show counselors their grades on Aeries from their phone or laptop. If emailing a transcript, a screenshot from student Aeries account is also acceptable.
