College & Career Readiness attendance expectations

Success in the program requires time, hard work and commitment. To support your success, our attendance policy requires that students attend at least 75% of their class meeting hours. The College and Career Readiness program is delivered through hourly instruction. Therefore, regular attendance is defined as arriving on time and participating in the entire class period. Students who are unable to meet this requirement will be dropped from their classes. Regular attendance will help you in the pursuit of your educational and career goals. It will also allow students to preregister for classes in our next quarter (at locations where preregistration is an option).


Policies for minor students (16 and 17 years old)

Minor policy for other Workforce Continuing Education Classes and Programs

State Board Community College Code: 1D SBCCC 300.4 allows for minor students, ages 16 and 17, to enroll in self-supporting classes. Minors are allowed to register and pay online for self-supporting classes (courses with prefixes of CSP or SEF) unless otherwise specified in the course details. Enrollment in non-self-supporting courses will require in-person registration.

A minor who is not currently enrolled in a public or private education agency may be admitted to a College & Career Readiness or Workforce Continuing Education program under specific conditions:

Withdrawn from public or private education within past month

  • Signed official withdrawal form from the local public or private educational agency
  • Notarized petition of the minor's parent, legal guardian or other person or agency having legal custody and control. The petition shall certify the minor's residence, date of birth, date of leaving school, name of the last school attended and the petitioner's legal relationship to the minor.

Withdrawn from public or private education for at least one month

  • Notarized petition of the minor's parent, legal guardian or other person or agency having legal custody and control. The petition shall certify the minor's residence, date of birth, date of leaving school, name of the last school attended and the petitioner's legal relationship to the minor.
