Tips for Selecting Your Courses

  1. Fill out a Department of Public Instruction Youth Options form. Your high school counselor can give this to you. This should be signed by your district by March 1 for the following Fall semester or Oct. 1 for the following Spring semester.
  2. Talk to your high school counselor to see which courses are appropriate for YOP students. YOP Students make take day or evening classes as approved by their high school. Admission is ordinarily restricted to students in their junior and senior years of high school.
  3. Check the campus schedule of classes on the campus website. If it is not available, check the course schedule from the previous year to see what was offered that semester. Many courses are offered on a specific rotation so previous terms are a good indicator of what will be offered. For example, if you are looking to take a class in the fall of 2017, you would refer to the fall 2016 schedule.
  4. Students may want to contact the Youth Options Office at youthoptions@snc.edu for course recommendations.
  5. YOP students should fill out SNC-specific forms for YOP. These will be mailed to you upon our receiving your Department of Public Instruction form from your school.
  6. Students must take care of all class prerequisites by either submitting Advanced Placement scores or taking a placement test. Some coursework may require referral to the academic department for a recommendation and approval of advanced courses. Language courses require a Language Placement Exam. (Please contact Youth Options office for more information.)
  7. The Youth Options Program Director will register you for your classes when the office of the registrar opens registration for non-degree-seeking students, usually in December for Spring classes and July for Fall classes. Enrollment for a specific, approved course is not guaranteed. Youth Options students are enrolled on a space-available basis.
  8. Schedules will be mailed to both the high school and the students.
  9. Students are limited to a total of 16 SNC dual credits, either through Youth Options, the College Credit Program or a combination of the two.
  10. All Youth Option Program students must attend a mandatory orientation in August for Fall classes or January for Spring classes.
