Bridge to College K-12
The Bridge to College Program at Los Angeles Trade-Tech College (LATTC) provides students the opportunity to concurrently enroll in college courses while still in high school. The purpose of the program is to provide advanced scholastic and educational enrichment opportunities for eligible students.
Advanced scholastic academic work: courses applicable towards a two or four year degree or courses beyond the scope of a high school’s program.
- Vocational Training: any course in any vocational field (e.g. Architecture, Automotive, Cosmetology, Electrical, etc).
- Non-Credit Courses: open entry/exit courses that do not carry any college unit credit intended for personal enrichment.
- Early college experience: students will become familiar with college work and procedures while still in high school.
Students who desire to participate in concurrent enrollment must be recommended by their principal or counselor and have parental permission.
Although the K-12 school makes recommendations, LATTC can deny admissions based on:
- Age Restrictions for specific courses (Cosmetology)
- Completion of a specified grade level
- Demonstrated eligibility for instruction using assessment methods (e.g. Math and English)
- Limitation on enrollment of credit Physical Education (limited on average to four students per section)
Credit Course Repeats / Withdrawals*
- Students have three (3) attempts to successfully pass a course with a “C” or higher throughout the entire Los Angeles Community College District. •A Withdrawal (W) or an Incomplete (I) will now count as an attempt.
- Students may petition to repeat a class for the fourth (4th) time only in cases of extenuating circumstances (e.g. fire, flood, or other extraordinary conditions). Student must meet with an Academic Counselor.
*Exceptions may apply to students who have successfully passed a class due to specific circumstances, such as a legally mandated training, the course content has changed, or significant time has lapsed.
