Special Admit Students

The Special Admit Program is intended for K-12 students who wish to enroll part-time in advanced scholastic or vocational classes.

To be eligible for the Special Admit Program during the Summer, Fall or Spring terms, students must obtain the required recommendation from the principal, permission from the parent or guardian, and approval from a Cypress College counselor. In certain circumstances, the signatures of a division dean and the college President is required.

Special Admit students are required to have a 2.00 grade point average (verified by a high school transcript) and must meet all college admission requirements, attend assessment/orientation, and meet course prerequisites.

Special approval is required for students less than 16 years of age, persons under age 18 who are enrolled in school, full-time enrollment, and enrollment in specific courses where content is deemed not appropriate for minors by the department. Students on an F-1 visa are not eligible.

To change enrollment at the college, Special Admit students graduating from high school prior to the next college semester must bring in their diploma or high school transcript indicating their graduation date to the Admissions and Records Office.

Note: Students interested in attending must complete the admission application online and the Special Admit Packet.
