Dual Enrollment

College in High School, FREE!

At OUSD our students can enroll in college courses taught by MiraCosta College professors. Classes are available at OUSD high schools, online or at MiraCosta College. This allows students to get a head start on their future by building their college transcripts before they graduate high school. Unlike AP courses, no exams outside of class are needed to receive college credit, just earn a passing grade in the course.

  • Intro to Business
  • Entrepreneurship & Small Business Management
  • Pre-Calculus 1: College Algebra
  • Pre-Calculus 2: Trigonometry and Analytic Geometry
  • Psychology of Personal Growth
