College in the High School Steps to Enroll

  1. 1 Submit your Registration Request
    Submit a free CiHS registration request to tell us which classes you are enrolled in at the high school that you would like to earn college credit for. If you have never attended SPSCC before we will reach out to you to fill out an admissions application.


  2. 2 Activate Your Student Accounts
    Once your registration request and/or application have 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. This gives you access to resources and support on the SPSCC campus and virtually as well as the ability to view your college transcript once you complete classes.

  3. 3 Get Placed
    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.

  4. 4 Get Registered
    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.

  5. 5 Pay the CiHS Course Fee
    Each College in the High School course has a fee of $150.00 that must be paid to your high school. If you are enrolled in more than one course you will pay this fee for EACH course enrollment. Please contact your high school ASB/front office for more information on how to pay.

Drop Requests

The student, high school instructor or high school CiHS coordinator can request a course drop via the CiHS Drop Request form online.

Exception to Drop

Students may request an exception to drop after the Census Day only when the circumstance for the request is due to 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 student fee payment will be retained, and a refund will not be issued.
