College and Career Access Pathways (AB288)


Updated November 2018

This joint initiative of the California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office and the California Department of Education allows high school students to dual enroll in up to 15 community college units per term; students may enroll in no more than four courses per term. Program goals are to develop seamless pathways from high school to community college for career technical education (CTE) or general education transfer, improve high school graduation rates, or help high school students achieve college and career readiness. Courses must be part of an academic program defined in a Career and College Access Pathway (CCAP) partnership agreement and meet criteria for both a high school diploma and an Associate of Arts or other credential.
