ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS TO ATTEND A COMMUNITY COLLEGE
You may attend any California Community College in the state. If you have a high school diploma, you are admitted regardless of your age, prior course work or grades. If you do not have a high school diploma, you are admitted if:
- you are eighteen years of age or older, or
- you have successfully passed the California High School Proficiency Examination, or
- you have successfully passed the GED (General Education Development) Examination.
Current high school students who would like to take classes at College of Marin need an enrollment card signed by their parents, counselor and principal.
Good news at College of Marin! They have a new course placement process for math and English.
Many students will no longer have to take a test to enroll in math or English classes at College of Marin. With the new AB 705 legislation, California Community Colleges now use high school GPA and guided self-placement to help students select their math and English classes. However, the best way to select the right class is to see a counselor. A counselor will help you determine the best choice for your individualized educational goal.
