​​​​This option allows high school students to enroll in a college course prior to high school graduation, giving them first-hand exposure to the requirements of college-level work while gaining high school and college credit simultaneously.​

The Early Decision program is offered to graduating seniors in Citrus College's district high schools (Glendora, Azusa, Gladstone, Monrovia, Duarte and Claremont). Students who are interested in participating should contact their respective school's career or college center during the fall semester for information on the program. ​​​​In the event that Citrus College is invited by a high school outside of Citrus College's service area to offer the Early Decision program, then the students who complete all requirements of Early Decision program at those high schools will also be eligible. High schools outside the service area that are currently participating in the Early Decision program in fall 2020 are: Arcadia, ​Baldwin Park, Bonita, Charter Oak, Covina, Fairvalley, Northview, Pomona, San Dimas, Sierra Vista, and South Hills high schools.
