College Now Program

 College Now Program for MDUSD Students

The College Now Program launched in the Fall semester of 2016 with a cohort of MDUSD eleventh graders. In 2024-2025 College Now class capacity will be 60 juniors and 60 seniors.

Housed at Diablo Valley College, College Now students take a block of three high school courses taught by MDUSD teachers. College Now students will take the rest of their courses at DVC with other community college students and they will earn both high school and college credit for those DVC classes. Classes are chosen according to MDUSD graduation requirements as well as the interests and post-secondary plans of the student. Students choose their DVC classes with the help of a MDUSD high school counselor and a DVC college counselor.

College Now is an exciting opportunity for MDUSD students. Any interested and eligible MDUSD student is welcomed and encouraged to apply. The next application process will take place in the Spring of 2024 for classes beginning in August of 2024. Please read the information provided here and talk to your high school counselor about eligibility requirements.
