SRVUSD seeking student applicants for CollegeConnect program

Participants can earn up to 30 units of transferable credit

High school students are now welcome to apply for the San Ramon Valley Unified School District’s CollegeConnect to participate in a dual-enrollment program to earn college credits.

Launched in 2016 by the district in partnership with Diablo Valley College’s San Ramon campus, CollegeConnect gives 11th- and 12th-graders the opportunity to enroll in a shortened high school schedule so that they can attend college courses during their regular school day or in the evening.

Now through Feb. 14, students can enroll in CollegeConnect and earn up to 30 units of transferable credit into a University of California or California State University campus. Students may apply to take college courses during the summer.

“Essentially, successful students may complete their first year of college by the time that they graduate from high school,” SRVUSD officials said on their informational CollegeConnect web page. “Students who are hard-working, able to persevere through challenging situations, and bring a diverse set of experiences and perspectives to the program would be an especially good fit.”

District officials added that they encourage all hard working students to apply, even if they consider themselves to not yet be “college ready.”

Applications are available online and will need to be turned into SRVUSD Education Services Department, Building C, 699 Old Orchard Drive, Danville, Feb. 14 at 4 p.m.
