   Step 4:

 Send your  form to Mrs. Larsen through Synergy.  
Once everything has been checked for accuracy and there are no corrections needed (be sure to keep an eye out for emails from  Mrs. Larsen or your counselor) your form will be sent to your counselor and then the college for processing.

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 it 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.
