Advanced Education

Advanced Education

Cosumnes River College encourages 11th and 12th grade students (and other high school students under special conditions) to enroll for advanced educational enrichment with the approval of their principal/counselor and parent/guardian. High school students may take up to 6 units or two classes. California residents are exempt from enrollment fees, but not from books/material costs. Fees for non-residents still apply.

Concurrently enrolled high school students earn college credit and get a jumpstart on classes that may apply toward a certificate or degree at Cosumnes River College and/or transfer to a four-year college or university.

College Counselor Approval:

The process to obtain Counselor Approval has changed! Turn in your completed Advanced Education packet including the materials listed below to the Counseling Center or your CRC Outreach representative for processing.

  1. Completed Advanced Education form (Section I - III & the back of the Advanced Ed Application)
  2. High School transcripts
  3. Assessment results
  4. Typed Statement explaining how you meet the criteria for Advanced Education
  5. Documentation of age ( if Home Schooled or not reflected on high school transcript )
  6. If the application was not signed by your school principal, include the list of authorized designees provided to you by the individual that signed the application on behalf of the principal
  7. Private School Affidavit (if appropriate ).

Because the Priority 3 registration period does not begin until May 16, 2019, we will collect packets but may not process them until we are closer to the start of Priority 3. Once approved or denied, the Counseling Center will call students with a status update.

Please note that the application processing time is 14 business days. 

If you have questions about the status of your application after 14 business days, please call the Admissions and Records office at 916-691-7411

NOTE: If the Advanced Education Application is denied or referred to the Vice President of Student Services, the student must complete an Advanced Education Petition and provide additional documentation to support the petition. The petition is available for download at


Once your packet is approved, you will receive a phone call. A&R will complete course enrollment for you (based on the selections on your packet) on (or any time after) your Priority 3 enrollment appointment date and time (log in to your eServices account to see your enrollment appointment).

No remedial classes will be offered. For most classes, students must have a minimum 2.7 GPA. Some other restrictions may apply.
