Are you considering taking college classes while in high school? If so, there are a few things you should know. Whether you homeschool, go to a public school or attend a private school, high school students are can take community college courses. You can even take them if you are younger! If you’re a K-8th grade student, you can also take community college classes though there are additional restrictions. No matter your grade, if you are still in school, you’ll need to get approval from the principal of your school before you can sign up for classes. Permission forms are available at the community college you wish to attend. Remember that this may take days to weeks to get the paperwork in order, so plan ahead. You’ll also have to register as a community college student and get an Student ID number before registering for classes. Community classes are free to student, but you’ll still need to pay for textbooks.
