The District has formalized post-secondary partnerships with two-year and four-year institutions. Yuba Community College and Chico State University have a dedicated presence on our middle school and high school campuses to facilitate and support a college going culture. The district also partners with Butte Community College to offer a few articulated Career Technical Education high school courses.  
Dual Enrollment
Dual Enrollment allows high school students to take college courses and earn college credit in both academic and career subjects. We offer dual enrollment courses with Yuba College in the field of administrative justice and fire science with more courses on the horizon.  
Articulated College Courses
Articulation is a process where high school students can earn college credits for specific Career Technical Education courses taken in high school. High school courses are matched with equivalent college courses and after meeting specific criteria, high school students are granted college credits. MJUSD articulates courses with Yuba College and Butte College in the fields of early childhood education, animal science, business management, and photo and graphic design. 
Early College 
In partnership with Yuba College, MJUSD offers an Early College program to freshman cohorts. Early College is a type of dual enrollment program that allows students the opportunity to earn an associate's degree or up to two years of college credits toward a bachelor's degree in high school—at no cost to students.
Advanced Placement
Advanced Placement (AP) gives students the change to tackle college-level work while they’re still in high school. Through taking AP Exams, students can earn college credit and placement. 
Middle School Honors
MJUSD is offering honors courses in English Language Arts and Mathematics for highly advanced academic middle school students who have consistently demonstrated skills above grade level.  
A-G Course Definition 
A-G courses are a series of high school classes that students are required to successfully complete for eligible admission to the California State University and University of California systems. MJUSD offers a robust A-G courses list at high schools throughout the district.
Community Service/Internship Opportunities
Community service/Internship opportunities allow students to grow their skills and gain on-the-job experience while in high school. Not only can these hours be used for Internship experience, students may use these hours as community service hours for college admissions. With permission from a school counselor, students can earn five (5) work-based learning credits to be used towards the graduation requirement for electives. 

A recent survey of college admissions officers found that community service can be a tipping factor when making college admissions decisions. In fact, 53% of those surveyed said that community service can almost be a “tie-breaker” between applicants who are equally qualified. While community service is a great way to impress admissions officers, it also provides opportunities to dive into activities students love. In fact, it may even help gain a clearer understanding of what career students want to pursue! Volunteering provides a competitive edge needed in the college admissions process and helps students stand out among other applicants.
