Due to changes in the CiHS program legislation, we have some work to do over the summer to get our Registration Request up and running for the 2023-2024 academic year!  If you took CiHS classes through SPSCC during 2022-2023, you do not need to do anything until September 2023 when you come back to school.  We will open up the registration request at that time.

If you will be a brand new CiHS student at SPSCC next year, please fill out your Admissions Application now so that you will be ready to fill out your registration request in the fall.

Admissions Application

CiHS Admissions Guide

Once your registration request (or application) has been processed, we will email your ctcLink ID number to the email address you used to apply.

If this is your first SPSCC dual-credit class, you need to activate your two student accounts: your ctcLink account and your ClipperID.

These accounts give you access to resources and support virtually and on the SPSCC campus, incuding the ability to view your college transcript once you complete classes.

Activate Your Student Accounts

If the course you have applied for has a prerequisite, you must meet this prerequisite before we can enroll you.

We will check with your high school for any acceptable documentation. If you do not have any documentation we can use, you will need to place by taking the appropriate English Guided Self Placement (English GSP) or Math Placement WAMAP exam.

Placement Options

We will register you for any CiHS courses you have applied for and meet the prerequisite for.

You will receive an email confirmation of your registration & your high school instructor will also receive a list of registered students.

There is a $150 fee for each College in the High School course you're enrolled in.

Contact your high school ASB or front office for more information on how to pay at your high school.

CiHS Drop Requests

The student, high school instructor, or high school CiHS coordinator can request a course drop via the CiHS Drop Request form online. This must be completed by the drop deadline.

Exception to Drop

Students may request an exception to drop after the Census Day only when the circumstance for the request is one of the following:

  • Student is moving and/or withdrawing from the high school
  • Student is suspended from the high school and not allowed access to the high school campus for more than two weeks.
  • Circumstance is due to extended illness, death of an immediate family member, military service, hardship or when there is documented evidence of institutional error.
  • Circumstance is due to a health pandemic or natural disaster forcing closure of the high school for more than two weeks.

If an exception to drop is approved, the student’s enrollment will be dropped and they will not receive a transcribed grade from SPSCC. The student’s high school transcript will be impacted based on the local high school policies for grades. The course fee payment of $150 per class will not be refunded.
