Just before Winter Break, students and families will be notified of whether or not they have been accepted to the U’College Academy program. Once accepted, students will need to submit a letter of intent, apply to be a Chaffey College Dual Enrollment student, and register for our U’College Class of 2028 Kickoff event. 

Wait List

Students who are not initially accepted may be placed on a waiting list. If you are placed on the waitlist, it is important to accept your place on the waitlist and still apply to be a Chaffey College Dual Enrollment student.The students who have completed this process will be the first to move off the waitlist if and when additional spots in the program open up. Waitlisted students may continue to be accepted during the spring semester and summer, depending on availability. 

If you have any questions about your application, the program, or the process, please do not hesitate to contact us.
