DUAL ENROLLMENT IN HIGH SCHOOL PARTNERSHIP CLASSES (offered through North High School during our annual scheduling period)

North High School and Torrance Unified School District are proud to offer dual enrollment partnership classes through an special agreement with El Camino College. These class offerings are only available to North High students and most of these classes are taught by our very own North High teachers, who were pre-qualifed as El Camino teachers of record based on their educational background, training, and workforce experiences. Early college credit is "portable" to most two-year colleges or four-year universities. El Camino College enrollment fees along with textbooks/materials fees are waived for classes offered in partnership with North High School. 

The following partnership courses are offered specifically to NHS students:

DUAL ENROLLMENT (completed independently through El Camino, with academic counselor pre-approval)

El Camino College admits qualified 11th-12th grade students who have the ability to benefit by dual enrolling in free college classes while still in high school. Students in grades K-10 may be eligible for Dual Enrollment under limited circumstances. These classes are taken at El Camino or online with an El Camino College Instructor. Interested students apply directly through El Camino College's high school dual enrollment office. Please note that students must obtain counselor approval in a dual enrollment class, whether the class taking during the school year or over the summer. Upon completion of a dual enrollment course, students MUST order a copy of their official El Camino transcript and deliver the unopened official record to our Records Office staff for the grade to be included on their high school transcript.

See El Camino College webpage for info on the enrollment process and class schedule of available courses
