Early College Credit

Students may enroll in online courses from the College of the Siskiyous that will fulfill general education 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.

Online Course Offerings - Summer 2020

Below are the course offerings for Summer 2020 as part of the Early College Credit Program. Students interested in enrolling in a fall course should have a free period. These are IGETC courses that will fulfill GE requirements for UC and CSU schools. AP students need to be sure not to take overlapping courses (AP Psychology students should not sign up for psychology classes). There is no cost for the course, although some courses may require the purchase of a textbook.

There are an increased number of condensed courses this summer. Please check to make sure that read the date range on the class as a month-long course will be more intensive. Space in courses that run the entire summer may be limited.

The core GE Humanities courses available are:

  • Introduction to Cultural Anthropology (Anthropology 1010 CRN 5001)
  • Introduction to Humanities (Humanities 1001 CRN 5019)
  • American Government: National, State, and Local (Poly Sci 1001 CRN 5023)
  • Introduction to Psychology (Psychology 1001 CRN 5024, 5025, 5026)
  • Introduction to Sociology (Sociology 1001 CRN 5028, 5029 & 5030)

The above courses will be offered on a rotating basis so the returning ECC (Early College Credit) students will have the opportunity to take a new class and new ECC students can take a class that may have already been offered.

Transfer of Units

The California Community College (CCC) courses we have selected are transferable to all UC and CSU schools. We have selected courses that can be applied to the general education requirements of most campuses.

If you’re considering attending a private or an out-of-state school, call the admissions office of the universities in question and ask about the transfer of California Community College units, though we have found that the vast majority of colleges accept these units as part of general education course work.

Steps to Register

Look over the list of courses offered as part of the ECC program. Meet with your counselor to plan your schedule, including taking the online courses.

College Cost Savings

Average cost per unit for a California State University class is $191 per unit. For a typical 3-unit class in this Early College Credit program, that would be a savings of $573.

Average costs for a UC course is $502. For a typical 3-unit class in this Early College Credit program, that would be a $1506.

Private university costs per unit vary, but for a typical private college attended by a Carondelet student can range from $925 for St. Mary’s to $1560 for Chapman, with some school over $1800 per unit.

When these units transfer, the savings add up quickly.
