QUICK TIP: When creating your account, use a PERSONAL email address, NOT one associated with your current high school. Include your full legal name, do not use nicknames or initials. If you have a Social Security Number and might attend Merced College after graduating high school, it is beneficial to include it when applying, though not required.

If you are unable to complete the online application, you can download and print the Paper Application for Admission (pdf) and drop it off in person to the Admissions & Records office. Be sure to bring a picture ID (such as a High School ID card) to Admissions and Records when you apply.

Once you receive your 7-digit Merced College ID #, you can begin the Dual Enrollment process by completing the required forms:
