Steps to Apply and Enroll


You are a high school student taking college credit classes

Concurrent Enrollment Student

Through our Special Admit program, local high school students can take college classes at Mt. San Antonio College to get a jump start on their college credits. We call this "concurrent enrollment," and it's available to our local in-district high school juniors and seniors (11th-12th grade).

You can download the enrollment packet for the Special Admit program here. Please browse the information and tips below to ensure you're ready to begin the enrollment process. For important dates and deadlines, be sure to check out our Academic Calendar.

Students must meet the following criteria to participate in the Special Admit program:

  1. Attend a local in-district high school.
  2. Be recommended by their high school principal or counselor.
  3. Be approved to participate by their parents.
  4. Have the required cumulative high school grade point average.
  5. Meet all course prerequisites.

After you've completed your enrollment packet, call our Counseling Center at (909) 274-4380 to make a Special Approval Session appointment. At this appointment, you must turn in your completed enrollment packet. During the appointment, you will be told if you've been approved as a Special Admit (this means you've been accepted into the program). If you are approved, you will receive information on what classes you can register for and how.
