Steps to Get Started

College in the High School Application and Enrollment Process

A Skagit Valley College representative may visit classes eligible for CHS to assist students with the enrollment process. High School Teachers will notify and remind students of college enrollment dates and deadlines. The student enrollment process is outlined below.

Apply Online for Admission

Complete the SVC Admissions Application through the Washington State Community and Technical Colleges Application System at www.skagit.edu/apply.

  • Please enter a personal email address (not a high school email address). You will have to log into your email account to complete the application process.
  • Please enter “CHS” as the field of study and ask your teacher which quarter you should apply for.
  • You should receive a welcome email and a Skagit Identification Number within 14 business days.

Apply to SVC through the Washington SBCTC online application.


Complete the Registration Form

Complete the SVC Class Registration Form: https://skagitvalley.tfaforms.net/217757. Please complete a separate form for each course you wish to register for.

  • SVC typically waits until course registration is closed to process registrations. Please expect an email confirming your registration approximately 1-2 weeks after the course registration deadline.
  • You should receive an email once you complete the form, and then another email once you are officially registered in the system. Your teacher will let you know if you are required to meet prerequisites before your registration can be processed.

Meet Prerequisite Requirements

If the CHS course has prerequisites, you are required to meet the prerequisites just as general SVC students do. Students who do not meet the pre-requisites for a specific course will not be allowed to register for college credit in that CHS course, unless they have received special instructor permission. (See Appendix B in the Student Handbook for a list of courses and prerequisite requirements).

  • SVC representatives will determine your eligibility.
  • If it is determined that additional documents such as high school transcripts or Smarter Balance transcripts are needed to establish placement, they must be provided to SVC representatives.


Pay CHS Class Fees

Payment of CHS fees can be made online at www.skagit.edu/payment or by phone at 360.416.7805.

  • Some high schools are able to pay for student’s College in the High School fees. Check in with your high school or email [email protected] to see if there is funding available for you.
  • Students who need to self-pay and do not pay by the designated date will be dropped for non-payment.

Pay CHS class fees online.

Note: Once the high school’s CHS registration period for each term has ended, students cannot be retroactively registered into College in the High School Courses.

Becoming a Cardinal!

Once students have completed the necessary enrollment documents and paid dual credit fees, they become SVC students. SVC students are eligible for learning resources and student support services at SVC. These services and resources include but are not limited to:

  1. Tutoring, Math and Writing Centers
  2. Counseling and Advising Services
  3. Computer Labs
  4. Library Materials and Services

Note: Students may need to get a student ID card for SVC to use some of these resources. Once students are registered and paid for courses, they may obtain a student ID card at the Enrollment Services office located in Lewis Hall on the Mount Vernon Campus or and the SVC Library on the Whidbey Island Campus in Oak Harbor when the college is open. The first student ID card is free.
