Dual Enrollment

Back to SBCC

Apply and Register

What do I need to do to be approved to take classes as a dual enrollment student?

Step 1

Apply to the college online here.  Please review our application guide to answer application questions accurately. NOTE: If you are currently taking an SBCC class, your application is still valid for the following term and you can skip this step.

Step 2

Complete the Dual Enrollment Approval Form paper form here. You will need student K# (see resources below), parent signature, student signature, and high school approval signature. This form is course specific and required each term. Forms can be turned into the Admissions and Records window in the Student Services building at 721 Cliff Drive. Please review this guide since incomplete forms will not be processed.

How do I register to take classes at SBCC's main campus once I'm approved?

To register for classes, go to Pipeline, the online student portal, and follow the prompts under "First time logging in."   To retrieve your username and password, you will need the last four digits of your social security number or your CCCID. Where is my CCCID? Click here for the registration guide. 

How do I make sure I don't miss any important SBCC emails about my student status?

All official campus correspondence goes to your Pipeline email account. If you have another primary email, please forward your SBCC email using this tutorial.

Do I have to pay any fees so I don't get dropped?

Dual enrollment students that have lived in CA for at least one year do not pay the per unit enrollment fee if they enroll in less than 12 units. For classes taken at the main campus, only mandatory health, transportation, and student rep fees apply. Click here for fee information. You do not have to pay fees for online classes. Book and supply costs vary per class.
