Olympia Campus, Building 22, second floor
College in the High School is a statewide program that allows qualified high school students to earn college credits for classes taught by their high school teachers on the high school campus.
You can learn more about College in the High School on the Admissions information page for the program.
High school instructors will give information to students about registering for College in the High School courses
Students will apply separately for each course, using an online form available at https://tinyurl.com/SPSCHS
The application includes a release of records for the college to access test scores and/or high school transcript information. SPSCC enrollment services will use those records to confirm placement into any college courses with prerequisites
SPSCC enrollment services will:
Drop Requests: The student, high school instructor or high school CiHS coordinator can request a course drop via the CiHS Drop Request form online.
Exception to Drop: Students may request an exception to drop after the Census Day only when the circumstance for the request is due to one of the following:
If an exception to drop is approved, the student’s enrollment will be dropped, and they will not receive a transcribed grade from SPSCC. The student’s high school transcript will be impacted based on the local high school policies for grades. The student fee payment will be retained, and a refund will not be issued.
Students will likely need copies of SPSCC transcripts for applications that require proof of college education attainment: most other higher education institutions and some employment opportunities
SPSCC transcripts will reflect the grades students earn in College in the High School Classes Transcripts are permanent. Grades cannot be erased or excluded from future course work at SPSCC or other higher education institutions
Students can request transcripts after they complete at least one College in the High School course and grades have been posted
Transcripts for CiHS students look exactly like those for all other SPSCC students.
FERPA appears to be based on the physical location of the student, so if the student is taking classes at the high school (even college classes), then high school policies for privacy apply.
Yes, but only if they take different classes. For instance, a student could not double-register for CHS English 101 and take English 101 at SPSCC.
No, the college does not have any control over high school class caps, even for the College in the High School classes. CiHS Courses must have a minimum of 4 qualified students enrolled to run for the term.
Students will need to bring ID to Student Life in Building 27 at the SPSCC Mottman Campus or to the One Stop in Building 1 at the SPSCC Lacey Campus to receive an ID card.
