Concurrent Enrollment With Four-Year Colleges and Universities

College of Alameda provides its students with the opportunity to enroll concurrently in one lower-division course each semester at any of the participating colleges or universities listed below:

  • UC Berkeley
  • CSU Eastbay
  • John F. Kennedy University
  • Holy Names University
  • Mills College

The program was designed to increase exposure to a college or university where a student might not otherwise plan to enroll, to allow student access to complete required courses not available at their home campus, and to enable students to test their potential for success in a college or university environment. Formally admitted UC students and individuals who have attended a four-year institution or holding a Bachelor’s Degree or equivalent from a foreign university are not eligible to participate.

For more information about program eligibility criteria and participation in the program, please make an appointment to see a counselor or contact the Transfer Program Director at (510) 748-2113.
