Frequently Asked Questions 

What are the dates for College for Kids in summer 2017?
College for Kids classes run at the same time as regular summer school classes at Diablo Valley College, so students gain the feel of a real college campus environment.

Session 1 - June 20 thru July 6, 2017
Session 2 - July 11 thru July 27, 2017

When will the schedule be available?
Our online brochure will be available mid-March.  You will be able to browse and select class offerings in categories and according to campus location. An email to our College for Kids families will be sent out once our online brochure is available.  If you have not signed up for our email list, please do so here

When does registration begin?
Registration begins on April 10, 2017.  However, we recommend that you visit our home page to set up an account in our new registration system prior this date.

Will my child be escorted around campus for each class?
Due to the way classes are scheduled, similar to a middle school or high school where classes meet for one hour at a time, camp students are expected to know how to get to their classes on their own.  Please come to the parent orientation with your child so you can show them where their classes will be.

How will drop-off and pick-up work?
For Pleasant Hill campus families, we encourage parents to park and walk their children to their first class and to pick them up from their last class each day.  College for Kids staff will be available in parking lots 1 & 3 to help with drop-offs and pick-ups, if needed.  All families will receive a temporary parking permit for the time their children are scheduled with us. 

What is the refund policy?
To receive a full refund of tuition, a request to drop or you can drop online, must be made at least 7 business days prior to the class start date.  Please allow up to 15 days for refunds to be applied.
