- Concurrent Enrollment (CE) classes are college courses that can be taken during high school to earn both high school AND college credit.
- College courses require rigorous academic work. Course content may include controversial cultural, religious, political, aesthetic and human sexuality issues. Students must have the maturity to engage with the material in an academically appropriate manner and the time management skills to complete more work and meet deadlines. Students must also meet all college/university prerequisite requirements before enrolling in a CE course.
- The CE program is open to high school juniors and seniors who have met eligibility requirements.
- Students may attempt up to 30 CE credits per year and may not repeat a CE course.
- CE course registrations and grades are recorded on permanent college transcripts.
- Withdrawing from or failing a CE course may impact a student’s ability to receive financial aid in the future as well as a student’s ability to enroll in additional CE courses.
- The student is responsible for completing the admission and enrollment process, paying applicable admission fees and tuition.
- If a student withdraws from a CE course at their high school, they must also withdraw from the course at the college. Failure to do so will result in a failing grade on the college transcript.
- CE credit earned shall be transferable from one USHE institution to another.
