College in the High School

What is the College in the High School Program?

Everett Community College's College in the High School (CHS) program is a cooperative program between local school districts and EvCC. The program allows high school students the opportunity to earn EvCC college credit while simultaneously earning their high school credit for approved advanced high school courses. Courses are taught by qualifying high school teachers who work closely with EvCC faculty mentors to insure that the work that the students perform in the high school course is equivalent to a similar course taught on campus.

Enrollment is a 4-step process:

Deadline extended! Students may apply for admission, compass test if needed, and register and pay through Monday, November 23.

step 1  Apply for Admission (free) | More info on Admissions  
2015-16 Admissions Deadline for 1st semester & full year: Extended to November 23, 2015. Processing takes 3-5 business days. There is no specific "apply for admission" deadline for second semester classes since most student would have already completed these steps for first semester.
