Important points regarding the Dynamic Form:

  1. The student will need to complete all sections of the Dynamic form.
  2. The student should put an email for their parent/ guardian which the parent/ guardian has access to. The form will be emailed to the parent/ guardian for their digital signature. The parent/ guardian will also need to create a Dynamic Forms account. Helpful video on creating an account as a parent, CLICK HERE

COMMON QUESTIONS OR TROUBLESHOOTING CONCERNS:

COST FOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS:

Tuition is FREE for High School Students! High school students concurrently enrolled in a public school district are exempt from enrollment fees charged for all terms, including Summer. Enrollment fees are waived for students taking 11 units or less during the Fall/ Spring semesters or 9 units or less during the Summer/ Winter terms.

High School students are still responsible for purchasing textbooks and other school materials.

PREREQUISITES:

It is the students responsibility to meet any prerequisites for a class. A prerequisite is a requirement that a student demonstrate current readiness to enroll in a particular course or program. Prerequisites are listed in the Schedule of Classes and Course Catalog.

Students may use unofficial transcripts to clear prerequisites based on classes taken at California colleges and universitiesPrerequisites cannot be cleared based on high school credit, high school transcripts, or high school counselor recommendation​.

If the student feels they meet a prerequisite for a class, from their student LACCD email address, send an email to prerequisites@lavc.edu that contains their:

  1. Last Name, First Name
  2. LACCD Student ID Number
  3. Course(s) for which they are attempting to enroll
  4. Course(s) on their transcript which they believe meet the prerequisite(s)

MATH AND/ OR ENGLISH PLACEMENT: 

Make sure that the student has a placement for math and/or English on their account. If they do not, they will be unable to add a math and/or English class even if the student has submitted a dual-enrollment form. 

An easy way to check the students math and/or English placement would be for the student to login to their student portal https://www.lavc.edu/sis and click on Student Status, then click on Assessment Result.

If the student does not have a placement, the student will need to fill out this form, AB 705 Form and email it to initialsep@lavc.edu from their student LACCD email address.
