If you are currently enrolled in a 2+2 course (see 2+2 course listing (PDF)) at your high school or Mission Valley ROP, you could be eligible to receive college credit for completing this class. The steps are simple, and the payoff is tremendous. Not only will you save money, but you will also save time by not having to repeat the course again in college.
1: Meet Academic Requirements -
In order to receive credit for this class, you will need to earn an A or B in the class and pass the "Credit by Examination" requirement. The exam could be anything from a report or project to a test. Your instructor will provide you with detailed information about the "Credit by Examination" requirement.
2: Submit an Ohlone College Application -
You can complete an Ohlone College application online or a printed Ohlone College application (PDF), or you can receive one from the Ohlone College Office of Admissions & Records. Once you have completed an application, follow the instructions for New Student Admissions and Registration.
3: Complete "2+2 Application for Credit" -
If you meet the academic requirements in Step 1, your instructor will provide you with the Ohlone College 2+2 Application for Credit (PDF). Please complete this form and give it to your instructor before the last day of class.
4: Meet with an Ohlone College Counselor -
It is essential for you to meet with an Ohlone College Counselor as soon as possible after enrolling to discuss your educational and career plans. It is also important to tell your Counselor that you are eligible for 2+2 credit so that he/she can ensure that you receive the credit and receive proper academic advising.
Contact your high school counselor or the Career College Specialist in your school's Career Center. The Ohlone departments listed may also have more information.
