As part of our Early College Credit Program, students may enroll in online courses from College of the Siskiyous that will fulfill GE requirements for UC and CSU schools with no cost beyond the textbooks.
This allows students to earn credits and save tuition money when they enroll in college after high school graduation.
Liz Paz-Rumore, our Director of College and Career, notes, “Parents often ask me: ‘What can my daughter do to improve her college admission options?’ One of the best things is to have your daughter stretch herself intellectually by taking a college level class either by taking an AP, College of the Siskiyous, or other community college class.”
“The beauty of these classes is that they are on topics everyone, regardless of their future major, will benefit from the knowledge learned. Plus, you can earn college credit without having to take an end of the year test.”
“Colleges love seeing this on a student’s college application as it shows the student can handle a college level class and has a genuine interest in learning.”
“Some students enjoyed their class so much it directed them to their future college major. We’ve had students with 2.7 GPAs earn As in these classes and beyond improving their GPA. It was a great confidence boost.”
