Welcome to SJSU Dual Enrollment Programs!
SJSU Dual Enrollment Programs allow students to earn high school AND college college credit simultaneously for courses taken at or certified by San Jose State University. Dual enrollment courses are similar to Advanced Placement courses; however, unlike AP courses, dual enrollment courses DO NOT culminate in a high stakes exam. Students earn college credit through their course grades.
There are three types of Dual Enrollment courses
Step to College (STC) on Campus
Through STC on Campus, individual high school students enroll directly into lower division courses taught at SJSU (or online) by SJSU faculty.
Step to College (STC) Partnerships
Through STC Partnerships, SJSU enters into an agreement with a school or district to reserve seats in SJSU classes for high school enrollment. Classes are taught at SJSU (or online) by SJSU faculty.
Through Unitrack Partnerships, SJSU enters into an agreement with a school or district to certify high school courses taught by qualified high school instructors for SJSU credit. Unitrack certification may be used in place of, or in coordination with, Advanced Placement certification for certain courses.
