Early College Credit Program
At the Charter School of San Diego, our students have the opportunity to earn early college credit for free while in high school through two opportunities: College Dual Enrollment and Articulated College Credit.
The College Dual Enrollment Program at The Charter School of San Diego (CSSD) provides opportunities for high school students to take college courses for college credit while completing high school coursework. College courses may be taken on a college campus or online.
Articulated credit is a process by which a high school student may earn college credit through successful completion of a certain high school course where students achieve learning outcomes, skills, and abilities comparable to those covered in a college course. This process is outlined in a written, formal agreement between the high school and college. This means that high school students can earn early college credit while still in high school by completing certain high school courses with a “B” or higher.
