High School Student Enrollment

Based on the guidelines developed and approved by the State Department of Education and the Virginia Community College System (VCCS), BRCC provides opportunities for qualified high school students to enroll in college-level courses.

The purpose of enrolling high school students in college-level classes is to provide a wider range of course options for high school students and to avoid unnecessary duplication of programs. In order to be eligible, students must be high school juniors or seniors who are prepared for the demands of college-level work and who can benefit from the opportunity. Because enrolling freshman and sophomore students is considered an exception to VCCS policy, the college-ready status of each prospective freshman and sophomore student will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis by the College. Formal approval by the College president is required and final. Documentation of parental permission is also required for enrollment.

BRCC has developed the following programs and procedures in order to accommodate qualified high school students in college-level classes. For more information,  https://www.brcc.edu/Assets/uploads/admissions/admissions-hs-ck.pdf

Concurrent and Home School High School Students

(BRCC courses taken on-campus)

Concurrent high school student admission is designed for high school juniors or seniors who wish to take a course at BRCC based on their special interest or ability area. Students are part-time and remain as full-time students in their high school.

Dual Enrollment High School Students

(BRCC courses taken at high school)

Dual enrollment is designed for qualified high school juniors and seniors who are enrolled in special BRCC courses offered at the high school during the regular school day. The school system and the College must approve courses within this program.
