Advanced Education/Community College Classes

What is Advanced Education?
EGUSD students have an exciting opportunity to participate in Advanced Education. Advanced Education is intended to provide high school students with educational enrichment opportunities at the community college level. Current high school students who are interested in taking classes at one of the Los Rios Community Colleges (ARC, CRC, FLC, or SCC) may enroll in a maximum of 11 units each semester (summer, fall and spring).
  • Students must have started the 9th grade or be at least 14 years of age by the first day of instruction.
  • Students must be mature enough to understand the course material and to benefit from the presentation style.
  • Students should meet with their high school counselor, if they are interested in taking college classes as a 9th or 10th grader

Step 1: Log into your EGUSD Classlink Portal to access your California Colleges account.
In your portal, click on the icon "California Colleges" to access your account. Go to College at the top of your screen, click on California Community College Application and input the LRCC of your choice (Cosumnes River College, American River College, Folsom Lake College or Sacramento City College) then hit Launch (blue button).
Step 2: Apply to the LRCC of your choice (to generate a LRCC ID#) and login to set up an e-services account
New Students: Apply to a LRCC to be assigned a Los Rios Student ID number which will be sent by email from the Los Rios Community College District. After receiving your ID number, follow the directions in the email to set up your eServices account. Your Los Rios ID number is required and is a seven-digit number with a preceding "W", for example W2000000.
Continuing Students: Login to eServices and complete the 'Supplemental Enrollment Information Form' located in the Tasks tile.
Step 3: Complete the Advanced Ed Application Packet
Students must complete the Student section of the Advanced Education Application (PDF), including signatures for Parent and Student (typed signatures allowed). NOTE: To fill out the PDF, open it in Adobe Acrobat reader (free). Download for mobile devices or desktop computers.
Step 4: Send forms to your high school counselor for approval via email. If you are interested in taking classes at CRC or SCC, your counselor will sign and approve your forms and they will send them back to you to complete CRC/SCC's Advanced Education Submission Form (data submission and upload of documents).

Step 5: Wait for approval from LRCC (check the email you listed on your Advanced Ed application for approval notification)
Advanced Education students qualify for priority 3 registration. Admissions & Records will enroll students based on their approval and the date/time of their priority registration appointment.
Note: Do not submit your Advanced Education Application (PDF) directly to the college. You must submit them to your high school counselor for approval and let them submit the packet for you.
If you wish to take courses at multiple colleges in the Los Rios District, a separate Advanced Education Application needs to be submitted for each college you wish to attend.
