PLEASE NOTE: MOST classes taken outside TUSD will NOT be included on the student’s Beckman transcript. Such classes serve ENRICHMENT purposes only and will NOT serve to advance to a higher level or remediate a prior grade.
General Information for Students Wishing to Take Community College Courses:
Community College classes cannot be taken for advancement or to fulfill TUSD graduation requirements (such as English, Algebra, Geometry, World Language, World History, US History, Government and Economics). - For example, you cannot take Geometry at a community college to skip Geometry at Beckman or take Spanish 2 at a community college and take Spanish 3 at Beckman.
Community College classes count as a weighted class, therefore, BHS ”Healthy Limits” waiver applies.
BHS policy of “7 class MAX” applies during the school year and 2 class MAX during the summer.
Early College Program students will not be allowed to request additional classes to go on their Beckman transcript.
Students with an impacted schedule who need to take a visual/performing art course to meet the “F” requirement for A-G UC/CSU eligibility may be approved to take a community college course.
Beckman will add up to two (2) Community College courses to the high school transcript over the course of a student’s 4-years of high school.

Students must request an official transcript from the Community College be sent directly to your Beckman counselor within six weeks of course completion to include it on the Beckman transcript. Two ways to submit official transcripts:
