Minor Students (BP 5010) Barstow College provides education enrichment opportunities for a limited number of eligible minor students who have not graduated from high school and who would benefit from advanced scholastic or vocational work. Students in grades K-12 may concurrently enroll at Barstow College to supplement their elementary or secondary school education. The special-part time student enrolled in stipulated college courses may receive high school and college credit.
High school sophomores, juniors and seniors at least 16 years of age may concurrently enroll in up to six units at Barstow College by meeting the fol- lowing criteria:
Complete a College application for admission
Complete a concurrent enrollment form
Signed parental or guardian consent
Signed consent from school principal or designee
Written approval from a Barstow College coun- selor
Submit paperwork to the Admissions and Records Office

In addition to meeting the above criteria, students who are younger than 16 years of age or have not completed the ninth grade, or who want to enroll in more than 6 units, must obtain the approval of the Vice President of Student Services.
With prior approval from the high school, stu- dents may elect to have Barstow College units transferred to their high school to satisfy some of their high school diploma credits.
