Welcome, High School Students...


You’re in high school and thinking about your future—and college. Why wait? You can make Cabrillo College a part of your life while you’re still in high school...


  • Articulated High School Classes: Take high school classes for college credit. We have agreements with many high schools that link some of their courses with Cabrillo. You can attend those classes and, if eligible, you can petition Cabrillo for college credit. See our current Articulation agreements.
  • Dual Enrollment (formerly Concurrent Enrollment): You can take college classes while still in high school and get credit in both college and high school! This allows you to get a head start on your college education by taking math, English, arts, or other courses. Some may even fulfill your requirements for placement tests. Check with your high school counselor for details or visit our Dual Enrollment page.
  • Are you graduating from a Santa Cruz County High School this Spring? By indicating your interest in in Running Start, you can gain priority status for registration.Learn more here.
  • The Cabrillo Honors Transfer Program can enrich your educational experience and allow you to participate in outside research, attend thought-provoking seminars or delve deeply into literature. If you’re the kind of student who seeks challenges and pursues excellence, eager to learn things that go beyond the textbook, you will benefit from sharing your talents and interests with other highly motivated students.
  • Do you qualify for the AB540 non-resident tuition exemtion? Learn more here.
  • Join a Learning Community at Cabrillo and be a part of a fun, exciting, and supportive environment where students take a combination of linked classes that focus on a special theme.

You have many options for what to study in college and how soon you can start. By following the links on this page, you can learn more about your options. Taking college courses while still in high school is great preparation—and a smart first step—in pursuing your education.
