Advanced Education High School Student Admission and Enrollment Steps

Advanced Education is a program that allows current high school students to take classes at Cosumnes River College. Advanced Education students may enroll in 11 units each semester (across the Los Rios district). Applications must be submitted to each individual college.


  • The student has started the 9th grade or will be at least 14 years old by the first day of instruction.
  • The course the student wants to take is not available at their high school (applies to the summer term only).
  • The student is prepared for advanced study as recommended by the high school principal or their designee.
  • The student has parental consent to be admitted and enroll at the college.

Not an Advanced Education Student?

If you are not an Advanced Education student, then you may need to follow different steps. Find out what type of student you are and get the correct steps for you!

What Type of Student Are You?

Apply to Cosumnes River College

Create an OpenCCC account using a personal email (or log in if you already have an account) and fill out the online application for Cosumnes River College. As an Advanced Education student, select enrolling in high school and college at the same time.

Elk Grove Unified School District Students

If you are an Elk Grove Unified School District student, launch the application through the California Colleges website.

International Students

International students who want to attend CRC as Advanced Education students should consult with their high school international student advisor to determine if CRC coursework is appropriate. International students are responsible for paying nonresident tuition, enrollment, and Universal Transit Pass (UTP) fees, in addition to student representation and health services fees (for fall and spring semesters). Other conditions may apply.

Continuing/Current Students

If you are a continuing (current) student, then you need to submit a supplemental enrollment form each semester instead of a CCCApply application. You can find the Supplemental Enrollment Form in eServices. The form asks you to review and update your contact information, education goal, and major.

Students Must Reside in California

Students who are not physically located in California may not enroll in online courses offered by Cosumnes River College. Cosumnes River College is not authorized to provide education outside the boundaries of the State of California.

Additional Information

Complete the Advanced Education Application

Read and complete the entire Advanced Education application.

The application allows students to request up to six classes to expedite enrollment. These courses should be listed in order of preference with the number of courses requested, and these recommendations will be used by the Admissions office to enroll students as course availability allows. If none of the requested courses are available – or if you decide to take more classes after the packet has been submitted and approved – then you may submit an add/drop slip to Cosumnes River College's Admissions and Records office to request additional enrollment in classes at Cosumnes River College.

The Advanced Education application requires parental consent and a recommendation by your high school principal or authorized designee. Students are highly encouraged to discuss prospective courses with their parent and high school counselor before enrolling. The completed application requires signatures from you, your parent/guardian, and your high school counselor/authorized designee.

You can list up to six (6) course options on your application; however, you may enroll in a maximum of eleven units per semester across the Los Rios colleges.

    eServices is Los Rios' online student portal where students manage their information, records, classes, and more.

    After your application is processed, you will receive an email with your Los Rios student ID number (also known as a "W" number or "wID"). This is a seven-digit number with a preceding "W"; for example, W0000001.

    You will use your Los Rios ID and password to log in to multiple services, including Canvas, eServices, Los Rios Gmail, and instructional lab computers.

    Students who submit an application without a social security number (SSN), work authorization SSN, or individual taxpayer identification number (ITIN) will need to fill out a Student ID Help Form to process their application and receive their student ID number.

    Check Your Math and English Placement

    Your placement helps you determine which math, English, or English as a Second Language (ESL) courses you should enroll in.

    If you provided your GPA and the last math and English classes you took in high school on your application, then your placement information is automatically updated in eServices.

    From your eServices dashboard, click Academic Record, and then click Placements to view your math and English placements.

    If you did not enter your high school information on your application, then you may need to submit your high school transcripts or complete a self-evaluation to receive your math and English placement.
