Purpose: In accordance with the California Education Code, Copper Mountain Community College District (CMC CD) will
consider students in K-12 for Special Student Admissions and Concurrent Enrollment. The intent of the legislation, which allows
for enrollment of students in K-12 grades, is to provide an enhanced educational opportunity for students who are capable of
“advanced scholastic or vocational work.” Students will be considered for admission on this premise, and must meet the
requirements stated below (Board Policy 5010). Students will not be accepted for enrollment for reasons that are not consistent
with the intent of the program. Applicants will be evaluated for readiness for college-level work and must meet prerequisites.
April 2015: Question: Which community college courses are considered advanced scholastic or vocational work? Answer. The
Chancellor's Office has advised on several occasions that the terms "advanced scholastic or vocational work," "community
college level," or simply "college level" refer to college credit courses acceptable toward the associate degree which have been
properly approved pursuant to California Code of Regulations, title 5, section 55002(a). (See Legal Opinions 98 -17 and 02-16,
available at http://extranet.cccco.edu/Divisions/Legal/Opinions.aspx.). March 2014: State Legislation requires ALL students,
including K-12 Concurrent Enrollment students, to attend Student Orientation prior to registering for classes. November 2013: PE
is no longer available to Concurrent Enrollment students. June 2011: State Legislation now requires community colleges to
provide K-12 Concurrent Enrollment students the lowest enrollment priority.
Important Information About This Program
Enrollment in courses for K-12 Special Students is subject to availability.
Except in unusual cases, students may only take courses not offered at their school, and normally, no more than 11 units will be
approved.
Pre-College level math and English courses are not available to concurrent enrollment students (see chart inside this form).
Please see the current Schedule of Classes before completing a K-12 application to make certain the desired course is offered
during the semester for which concurrent enrollment is requested. Class Schedules are available at the high schools, CMC's
homepage and on Campus.
All applicable fees, including enrollment fees, listed in the Class Schedule will be charged, as well as the cost of required
textbooks and supplies as indicated by the instructor.
After admission status is determined, the student will be notified and if approved, will be told when they can register at th e
College. Concurrent enrollment is not continuous: Students must be approved for each semester. Concurrent students are
required to attend Orientation prior to the first time they enroll.
For continued enrollment at CMC, the student must maintain a 2.00 GPA.
Students should submit their class requests as soon as possible and not wait until the last minute. If they wait, the likelihood and
chances of their requested courses being available are poor. For example: A student knew she wanted to take PHIL-013 and
ART-001A during the Spring 2013 semester. She submitted her request on September 30th well in advance of the registration
period for the spring 2013 semester. The student could do this without the Spring Class Schedule, as these classes are always
offered on a semester basis.
Why courses are denied
Student does not meet a prerequisite.
High School Counselors should review student’s course requests to ensure they meet the prerequisites. Example: HS -061 has a
prerequisite of ENG-050. The student tested into ENG-050, so the course was denied.
From the Course Catalog, please note concurrent enrollment is for Public school students who would benefit from advanced
scholastic or vocational study…”and that “…students must fulfill admissions procedures as prescribed for students in the Student
Success and Support Program…(and) the college reserves the authority to validate student readiness for college level study
through the college Student Success and Support Program guidelines…”
Students wait until the day before or the first day of the semester and submit their requests without transcripts. These requests
cannot be approved without updated high school transcripts.

TO BE COMPLETED BY PARENT/LEGAL GUARDIAN
Note to Parent/Legal Guardian:
PARENTS OF STUDENTS ENROLLED AT CMC DO NOT HAVE A RIGHT OF ACCESS TO
THEIR CHILD’S ACADEMIC RECORDS WITHOUT EXPRESSED WRITTEN PERMISSION,
REGARDLESS OF THE STUDENT’S AGE, PER THE FEDERAL EDUCATIONAL RIGHTS
AND PRIVACY ACT OF 1976 (FERPA).
Under FERPA, when a high school student enrolls in a college course, her/his rights are transferred from
her/his parents/guardians to the individual student. Therefore, according to FERPA guidelines, if a student
is 18 years old or attending a post-secondary institution, only the student has rights to their educational
records; their parents do not. This also means that, regardless of their age, as long as a student is attending
a post-secondary institution, their parents do not automatically receive access to their educational records.
The student must give their expressed written permission via the Release of Information form in Student
Services.
A STUDENT MAY FILL OUT THE RELEASE OF INFORMATION FORM WHICH PROVIDES
THEIR PARENT/LEGAL GUARDIAN PERMISSION TO CONDUCT THEIR AFFAIRS ON
THEIR BEHALF.
Please be aware that all students attending Copper Mountain College are presumed to be mature and able to
be on campus “on their own.” Special admissions students will be attending classes with much older men
and women and may be involved in mature discussions in the classroom. Total Internet access is open to
all computer users in the CMC library. All student conduct code regulations apply to special enrollment
students.
Security should also be of concern to parents, especially for students attending classes at night. During the
fall and spring semesters, all administrative offices are closed by 6:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday and
3:00 p.m. on Friday. Pay telephones are available, but may not be in close proximity to the student’s
classroom.
Please give careful consideration to these critical concerns as you sign your student’s application for
admission.
