Concurrent Enrollment

  • Concurrent Enrollment

    Students may take college classes during their junior and senior years of high school.  Each high school senior who meets the eligibility requirements shall be entitled to receive a tuition waiver equivalent to the amount of resident tuition for a maximum of six (6) credit hours per semester but must pay for their own fees and books.  To enroll, students need to choose the local college they want to attend, meet the GPA/ACT requirements, obtain the required form from their counselor, and return the form to the college. 
     
    The concurrent enrollment will not be shown on the students schedule at the high school until the student brings their counselor a receipt from the college showing the classes they are enrolled in and that they have paid their fees.  Students college courses will be transcribed on their college and high school transcript.
     
    If you are a junior or senior in high school, you may enroll in college courses if you meet the admission requirements and other conditions listed below.
