The Concurrent Enrollment program allows current high school students to take college classes while finishing their high school diploma.

Take college classes as a high school student

Are you a high school student interested in earning college credit while you finish your high school diploma? Concurrent enrollment may be an option for you! With the approval of your parent/guardian, qualifying students can get a head start on their college career even as they complete their high school courses.

Concurrent enrollment does not replace high school courses. Concurrent classes at Moreno Valley College are taken in addition to your normal required high school classes.
