Early College Credit

Extensive research has shown that students who earn six college credits while in high school have a significantly better chance of getting to and through college. In the EBCP initiative, we are looking at “hinge courses” in CTE and counseling.

Early college credit can be realized multiple ways – for an overview of Dual Enrollment, Concurrent Enrollment, and Articulated Credit, check out this: Early College Credit Grid.

MOU’s for Dual Enrollment in EBCP:

Oakland, Alameda, and Berkeley started with a Pilot MOU for Dual Enrollment: PCCD-OUSD Pilot MOU for High School Special Admit Classes FINAL.

Oakland USD and Peralta now hold the following MOU: PCCD-OUSDMOUforHighSchoolSpecialAdmit.

West Contra Costa Unified and Contra Costa College hold this agreement: Dual_Concurrent-Enrollment-CCC-WCCUSD. Here is the Contra Costa College & WCCUSD – CCAP Agreement.
