    Limitations

    Prerequisites:

    • When a course has prerequisite requirements, students are required to have pre-existing knowledge to be successful in the course. For example, successful completion (a grade of C or better) is required in FLSPN 1 or a full year of high school Spanish is required to be considered for enrollment in FLSPN 2.
    • For courses with an English or math prerequisite, students must submit a copy of their high school transcripts for WHCL to evaluate whether the student meets the course prerequisite.
    • If the student has completed the prerequisite course at a different college, they must submit an unofficial transcript to receive a prerequisite waiver. The prerequisite requirement must be cleared prior to registration.

    Dual Enrollment Request Form

    • Dual enrollment students’ registration must be processed by a West Hills College Lemoore admissions official. Only those classes identified on the Dual Enrollment Request form will be allowed for enrollment.
    • Because dual enrollment student registration may not displace or reduce access for adult college students, high school students are not permitted to be placed on a waitlist or register for courses with a waitlist.
    • After officially enrolling in classes, a dual enrollment student will not be able to make changes to their class schedule. However, dual enrollment students may use other functions available such as paying fees, printing a class schedule, etc.
    • Please contact the Office of Admissions and Records if you have questions regarding adding or dropping courses. Dual enrollment students must adhere to all established deadlines and dates as published in the academic calendar. Changes to a dual enrollment student’s schedule must be requested by submitting a revised Dual Enrollment Request form.
    • All students requesting to add a course on or after the first day of class must also contact the instructor to request authorization to add before registration can be processed. Add authorization is granted at the discretion of the instructor.

    • Juniors and seniors: Are eligible for ENG 001A if they have passed their first two years of high school with a 2.6 GPA.
    • High school students who do not meet the minimum requirement of 2.6 cannot enroll in English courses at WHCL while in high school.
    • High school students are not eligible to take the co-requisite (ENG 001A w/ ENG 051A) if they do not meet the minimum 2.6 GPA for dual enrollment in English courses. ENG 051A is a co-requisite course for students needing support in ENG 001A. ENG 051A is no longer offered as a stand-alone course, so it cannot be used to make up high school units.
    • Sophomores: May take the ENG 051A challenge during the spring or summer while waiting on their GPA from their first two years of high school as long as they have a minimum of a 2.6 GPA up until that point. To complete the challenge, students should contact Amber Tidwell at ambertidwell@whccd.edu to have the process explained and to arrange to complete the challenge.
