The special admission process was designed in coordination with the local high school to serve the needs of students within South Lake Tahoe and nearby areas. Students enrolled in grades 9-12 must be recommended by their principal or high school counselor to take advanced scholastic and/or vocational coursework. The recommendation is subject to approval by the college counselors. Consent by a parent or guardian is also required. Some courses may have restrictions based on age, grade level or assessment standards. As a general rule, no students below grade 9 will be allowed to enroll in college courses.
Steps to Enroll
If you have never taken courses at LTCC before, you will need to complete an application for admission. Click here to apply.
Ask for a college placement form from your high school (within the Tahoe area) or the LTCC Admissions & Records office. You may also download the form posted on this page.
Contact Student Services at (530) 541-4660 ext. 231 or Room A100. You will need to take an assessment test (if required) and meet with a counselor for approval of your special admission form.
Check the registration priority chart in the Schedule of Classes to find the earliest date you can register. In general, registration for high school students in handled on a walk-in basis after having completed a counseling appointment. If you meet with a counselor at least two business days in advance, you may be able to register online via Passport.
Pay your fees when you register. Enrollment is only complete upon full payment of fees and/or tuition. If your fees are not paid, you will be dropped from your courses for non-payment.
Additional paperwork may be required depending on your situation. For example, students who register late must provide a late registration permit signed by their instructor.
