Special Admission - Kindergarten-12th Grade Students

The term “special admission” applies to students who are currently enrolled in Kindergarten-12th grade. These students may enroll in Ohlone College courses that are CSU/UC transferable on a space available basis. Noncredit, PE and ATHL classes are not available for any Kindergarten-12th grade student enrollment. Kindergarten-12th grade students must meet all course prerequisites to be eligible for enrollment; for courses in English and math this may require the student complete an Ohlone Placement. Parental and principal or school official approval is also required.

Students who attend a homeschool or online school, the local high school district office can sign your form or your homeschool must provide a private school affidavit for the current year.

Kindergarten-12th grade students are exempt from paying the California Community College Enrollment Fee ($46 per unit) but are subject to the Electronic Access Fee, Health Services Fee, Shuttle Service Fee and the optional Student Activity Fee. Students who are enrolled exclusively in classes located on their high school campus are also exempt from the Electronic Access, Health Services, Shuttle Service Fee, and Student Activity Fees. Students who are enrolled in online only classes are subject to the Electronic Access Fee. See Fees.Student plays his guitar outside on break.

All Kindergarten-12th grade students are required to submit a new application for admission every term. Kindergarten - 12th grade students should refer to the Kindergarten-12th Grade Enrollment Steps and carefully follow the directions in the application for admission packet to avoid delays in processing.

Important Notice
High School Students

As an incoming student to Ohlone, you will need to take the self-guided placement for Math and English.
Even if your high school has approved the courses you wish to take, you will still need to take the placement and/or meet the prerequisite requirements for some courses in college (Chemistry is an example). Some courses will block you from registering if you don’t have a placement or haven’t been cleared of the prerequisites. The link to Orientation and Placement steps can be found HERE.

    Ohlone College has a priority registration program - Freshman Days: Ohlone College Orientation - for graduating high school seniors. High school seniors who satisfy the "Senior Checklist" by the appropriate dates will be eligible to begin signing up on the first day new students are able to begin registering.

    Kindergarten-12th Grade Parent/Guardian Information (FERPA)

    "The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a federal law that affords parents the right to have access to their children's education records, the right to seek to have the records amended, and the right to have some control over the disclosure of personally identifiable information from the education records. When a student turns 18 years old or enters a postsecondary institution at any age, the rights under FERPA transfer from the parents to the student. [emphasis added]" Students who are enrolled at Ohlone College are covered by the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA). According to this legislation, college personnel cannot release a student's records or speak with parents and/or guardians about any student's academic records without the student completing the "Release of Information" form. The exception to this regulation is if the student is claimed as a dependent by either parent for tax purposes. Ohlone College reserves the right to require documents verifying student's status as a dependent.
