Community College Classes

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.
