Palomar College Dual Enrollment
BUSD has a signed a Career and College Access Pathways (CCAP) agreement with Palomar College which allows for the following:
- Bonsall High School partners with Palomar to offer college courses on campus during the school day. Currently, the courses offered include:
- Math 50: Beginning Algebra/Math 60: Intermediate Algebra (8 units)
- Math 110: College Algebra/Math 115: Trigonometry (8 units)
- GCIP 140: Digital Imaging-Photoshop/GCMW 106: Multimedia for Social Networking (6 units)
- GCIP 170: Screen Printing/GCIP 105: Design for Print Production (6 units)
- CTE: In Progress, TBD (6 units)
- BUSD covers the cost of registration fees, materials, and field trips to Palomar for these CCAP courses.
- Courses are provided on a first-come, first-served basis. This means that students must pay close attention to deadlines for registration and paperwork requirements to be admitted to the class of their choice.
- Some courses do not allow high school students to take priority over college students, this is particularly true in impacted courses in which the college is struggling to fill demand.
- BHS students do not pay tuition fees, but are responsible for registration fees (typically $20) and for course materials such as textbooks. Students are advised to investigate course material costs prior to enrollment as they can range from 0-$500/course.
- Students who take courses at local colleges should consider the following prior to enrollment:
- Tuition is only waived for students who fill out the special K-12 Enrollment Form
- The K-12 Enrollment Form requires the signature of the BHS principal. (See College Course Selection page for more information)
- Students attending UC and CSU schools can take as many college courses as they want. Students attending out of state or private schools should investigate policies on dual enrollment maximums.
