Current High School Students

Get a jump on your college education and save money by enrolling at CSM while you’re still in high school. We have a variety of admissions programs for students who attend a secondary school or home-school program or who are younger than 18 and have not graduated.

Dual Enrollment and Access CSM

Dual Enrollment Student

Dual Enrollment refers to students taking classes at CSM that count as college credit as well satisfy high school graduation requirements. Confirm with your high school counselor the transferability of CSM courses to meet high school graduation requirements.

CSM has also partnered with high schools for the Access CSM program, a unique program where high school students can take college courses at their high schools. CSM instructors will teach the courses from the CSM campus, and high school students have the opportunity to learn in a telepresence classroom.

Home School Student

If you are younger than 16 and have completed the seventh grade in a gifted/talented program at your school, you may be eligible to attend CSM.

Student studies in class

If you're currently in a home school program or have already earned your high school equivalency diploma or certificate, find out which programs you're eligible to enroll in.

The Career & Technology Education program (formerly Tech Prep) allows students to earn college credits through a sequence of academic and technical coursework while still enrolled in high school. Students successfully completing a Career & Technology Education (CTE) program in High School may receive articulated credits which are applicable to designated letters of recognition, certificates and associate of applied science degrees in a career field at CSM at no cost.
