High School Dual-Enrollment

If you are a High School student wishing to add classes for Summer 2020 or Fall 2020, please follow the below steps to submit your Dual-Enrollment form:

Step 1: Complete an LAVC Online Application

  • The application may take up to 5-10 business days to be processed. The student should be checking the email they provided in their application. This email sometimes inadvertently goes into spam, make sure to be checking the spam folder as well.

Step 2: Once the student receives their student ID number (which will start with an 88 or 90), they will need to complete a Dual-Enrollment Form

  • All three signatures are required to submit this form. Note: At this time, student and parent typed signatures are accepted.
  • Tutoring 001 is required on the form. The student will not be enrolled into this class. By including this on the form, the student has access to and can use LAVC Tutoring Services
  • This form must be submitted for each semester, checking off multiple semesters will not be accepted
  • The form is specific to each campus. For example, the student cannot submit the form to Valley and attempt to add a class at Pierce. The student would need to submit another form to Pierce. 
  • The form allows the student to enroll in up to 11 units in the Fall/ Spring semesters and 9 units in the Summer/Winter semesters

Step 3: The Dual-Enrollment form can then be submitted to Admissions to be processed. Note: Services have been moved online. At this time, please visit the online Admissions Live Chat Help Desks to have an Admissions representative process your Dual-Enrollment form. This form is not being accepted by email. 

  • The high school hold will still show on the students portal, even after the form is cleared. The form does not release the student from the hold, it only releases the student to add the classes listed on their form.

Step 4: Once the Dual-Enrollment form is cleared, the student is able to Enroll in their classes

  • The student is not automatically added to the classes on the form. The form simply allows the student to enroll in the selected classes, the student must enroll themselves into those selected class.
  • Another Dual-Enrollment form will need to be submitted if the student wishes to add any classes that were not listed on their initial form
  • Need help adding classes? The Welcome Center is available to help! Services have been moved online. At this time, please visit the Welcome Center website for Live Chat assistance or email the Welcome Center at welcomecenter@lavc.edu​
  • Want to know what books the student would need? Visit our Monarch Bookstore Online then follow the directions under "Course Materials"
