Congratulations, You’re Accepted! Now What?

We’re happy you’re here. Once you’ve completed the application and received your acceptance, there are some important things for you to do as a concurrent high school student.

Of course, if you have any questions along the way, our Welcome Services team can help.

Get course approval

1. Submit your Special Admissions Recommendation form 

As a concurrent high school student, you will need to submit your form via InSite. Here's what you'll need:

  • The email address and name of your school contact (if you do not know, please reach out to your counselor or principal for an email address of the person who can sign your form).
  • Your parent/guardian name and email.
  • The class you would like to register for.

The form must be:

  • Submitted each term*.
  • Filled out by the high school principal or designee and list the courses the student wishes to take**.
  • Signed by the student, parent, and high school principal or designee.
  • Submitted online to Admissions and Records.

By submitting the form, you will be given permission to register for the course online provided all signatures are received, the course is open, and you meet any prerequisites. After submitting your form, follow the steps below to get ready to register for your classes! 

Submit Your Form

*If you are a home schooled student choose "Homeschool" on the Special Admissions Recommendation form where it asks you to choose a high school.  

**Signed forms with no courses listed will not be accepted. You can only enroll in the course(s) listed on the form.

International students

If you are an F-1 international student enrolled in high school you are not eligible to be enrolled at Diablo Valley College at the same time. If you would like to transfer from your high school to DVC, please visit our steps to enroll for international students.

2. Check your application status

You need to have a current application on file with DVC in order to register for classes. If you previously completed courses at DVC, LMC or CCC, but have not taken a class for one year or more, you will need to reapply for admission. You will keep the same student ID number. 

To view all classes you've previously taken within the college district, you can view an unofficial transcript on InSite. To obtain official transcripts, you will need to order them from each school individually. Each college has a separate transcript.  

3. Check for prerequisites 

A prerequisite is a class that you must have completed before registering for a more advanced or related course.

  • Refer to the catalog to check if the class you want has a prerequisite.
  • If the class DOES have a prerequisite you may apply for clearance. You should do this BEFORE registration starts as it may take 2-3 business days for review.
  • Prerequisites cannot be waived. Learn more about course prerequisites.

Student educational rights & privacy

As a high school student attending college, your privacy of your educational records is protected. We will not release student information to parents without the prior written consent of the student. Learn more about student privacy rights.


Great news!  California high school students do not pay tuition fees! You'll need to just pay student union fees and any costs for class materials.

If you are not a California resident high school student, contact the Admissions and Records Office for information on nonresident enrollment fees. High school students who are classified as non-resident students for tuition purposes may be eligible for the SB150 waiver of non-resident tuition while still in high school.

Disability Support Services (DSS)

DVC students with disabilities have access to many resources to succeed in college! The DSS program offers a range of support services and adaptive technology. Services include tutoring, note taking services, equipment and software assistance, and alternate media services for textbooks and classroom materials. 

The DSS office is open for both in person services and remote communications, such as email, phone, online, and zoom. Learn more about DSS and how to connect with our team. We can’t wait to help you!
