Local 11th or 12th grade students interested in taking up to two college-level courses at California State University, Chico may participate in the High School Scholars (HSS) program.
High school students attending one or a combination of the California Community Colleges (CCC)?  Have you been to your college's transfer center?  Counselors have copies of GE or IGETC patterns to help with course selection each semester.  Taking GE courses can help explore majors and meet admission requirements.  You can also get more information about the AA-T and AS-T degrees.  (Note:  Chico only accepts 70 transferable semesters (105 quarter) units from community colleges.)
