Since 2015, the College of Liberal Arts and College of Professional and International Education (CPIE) at California State University, Long Beach (CSULB) has offered select Ethnic Studies courses to high school students.
These dual-enrollment courses give high school students valuable credits for both high school and college—for free—to all students who are interested. The credit earned in CSULB Ethnic Studies courses is not only worth its equivalent university-level cost, but is also transferable to most institutions a student chooses to attend, subject to each institution's transfer policies.
Ethnic Studies courses are currently offered to promising high school students, as approved by their campus counselor, for Long Beach Unified School District (LBUSD), Norwalk-La Mirada Unified School District (NLMUSD), Paramount Unified School District (PUSD), and Port of Los Angeles High School (POLAHS).
