HIGH SCHOOL CREDIT


Five high school credit units per semester are normally awarded for the successful completion of each five-hour weekly class. Most classes are year long, yielding 10 high school credits. Some classes meet more or fewer hours, and credits are adjusted proportionally.


COLLEGE CREDIT


College credit may be awarded for specific courses by either transfer-verification, petition or established articulation agreements with Cabrillo College and ROP. Many ROP courses are UC/CSU A-G approved. See course descriptions for details.


FEES


Books are at no-cost to high school students. Upon completion, if a state-licensing exam is required, the cost of the exam is the student’s responsibility.


CERTIFICATIONS


Some ROP classes provide training that meets CA State requirements. For classes that prepare students for State Certification, the applicant must also pass a State Certification Exam.


TRANSPORTATION


Students must provide their own transportation to and from off-campus ROP classes.
