College Credit Program (CCP) Concurrent Enrollment
College of Marin’s curriculum is equivalent to courses offered for the first two years at the University of California and California State University systems. Each year hundreds of high school students like you enroll in a variety of College of Marin classes, including foreign languages, science, dance, art, music, social sciences, and more. If you are not planning to transfer to a four-year university, consider enrolling in one of our workforce preparation programs such as business office technology, computer information systems, multimedia, court reporting, medical assisting, or auto technology among others.
COMPASS (College of Marin Promoting and Supporting Success) is COM’s primary tool in its efforts to end educational inequity in Marin County and is the result of two years of planning with the Marin County Office of Education, every high school in the county, and several community-based partners. It is a partnership between students, families, high schools, and College of Marin, which begins in the 9th grade. The 2015-16 academic year saw the initial launch of the COMPASS project in both Terra Linda and San Marin high schools.
Participating students agree to fulfill certain responsibilities:
- Enrollment in COUN 115/125 in 9th Grade
- Participation in supplemental activities
- Enrollment in specific high school courses based on assessments and the creation of tailored high school and college educational plans
- Financial planning and college application process
- Enrollment in additional COM courses throughout the high school career
