About the CollegeConnect Pilot
The San Ramon Valley Unified School District (SRVUSD) has partnered with Diablo Valley College (DVC), San Ramon to pilot the CollegeConnect Program to qualified rising 11th graders. This exceptional educational opportunity provides SRVUSD students with accelerated learning in the company of other college bound students, while preserving their high school experience.
Participating CollegeConnect students enroll in a shortened high school schedule so that they may attend college courses. During their 11th and 12th grade years, CollegeConnect students can complete up to 30 units of transferable credit aligned with the University of California’s (UC) and California State University (CSU) Inter-segmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) requirements. Essentially, successful students may complete their first year of college by the time that they graduate from high school. Students may choose to continue at DVC and transfer to a UC or CSU as a junior, complete a career certificate in a qualifying field, or earn an associate degree. Students may also choose to transfer approximately one year of college credits to one of the campuses of the California UC or CSU system.
 The number of classes that students require to complete the IGETC requirements vary based on college major and initial math and literacy placement.
