Steps to Enroll for K-12 Students

STEP 1 – APPLY:

If you have never enrolled in a College of the Siskiyous course you will need to apply. Click on the Apply Now button from the main COS home page or the words Apply Now on any other page and complete the form for attending COS. You will be prompted to create a temporary user name and password for the application. Please identify yourself as a K-12 Special Admit so that you will not have financial consequenses. When your application is complete you will receive your COS Student ID (S000#####) with the confirmation that your application is complete. You will use this number to take assessment tests, pay for classes, etc. In 24 hours (except weekends), your permanent Navigator Username and your default password will be e-mailed to you. Please keep your COS Student ID (also referred to as an S#) in a safe spot. Student IDs can only be released in person with picture ID or sent to the address on file.

If you have, in the past, enrolled in a COS course or camp, you can fill out and print a COS Enrollment Registration form and permit respectively. If you need a copy of your COS Student ID, it can be sent to you via e-mail or mailed to the address you have on record. If you need assistance with your Navigator UserName or password, please contact Navigator Help at (530) 938-5223 or e-mail Navigator Help. When e-mailing Navigator Help include your name, date of birth, and last 4 digits of your SSN.

STEP 2 – ASSESSMENT: Complete the COMPASS math, reading, and writing assessments to determine which courses are right for you. You may complete the assessments at the Weed or Yreka campuses, some high schools, or another community college. You will need your COS Student ID to make an appointment or to take the test. Visit the Assessment page for more information.

STEP 3 – OBTAIN APPROPRIATE PAPERWORK:

Obtain permission from your school by having the appropriate signatures on the Enrollment Registration form. The permit is now located at the bottom of the registration form. Meet with your school’s Counselor or appointed K-12 representative to find the courses most appropriate for you. Courses taken at COS are accepted for K-12 school credit at the discretion of your school. K-12 students may only enroll in non-activity PEMA courses.

STEP 4 - REGISTER:

You can mail, fax, scan, e-mail or bring in an Enrollment/Registration form with the K-12 Special Admissions Request form. Please do not try to register online. If the appropriate paperwork is not on file in the Enrollment Services Office, you will be dropped from your courses at your own cost.

Each term, students may enroll in the number of units shown below:

Age 1-8
0 Units
Age 9-13
6 Units
Age 14+
11 Units

There are no exceptions to these unit limits.

Once you have registered for a course you will have a College of the Siskiyous e-mail address. All correspondence will be sent through this address. The first half of the e-mail is the student’s user name. For example: username@ins.siskiyous.edu. Students are able access their e-mail through their Navigator account.

STEP 5 -  PAY YOUR FEES: All fees are due upon registration. College of the Siskiyous has an enrollment fee exemption for K-12 special admits who are California residents.  This does not include the Health and Student Representation fees or Out of State Tuition.

Federal Law Regarding the Release of Records for Minor Students

Parents have certain rights with respect to their children’s educational records. These rights transfer to the student when they reach 18 years of age or when they attend college. In the case of a special admission student who is attending College of the Siskiyous, the student is considered a college student. As such, access to the student’s records by parents or guardians is only permitted with a “Release of Information” form signed by the student. The form is available at http://www.siskiyous.edu/apply/documents/recordinforelease.pdf
