Concurrent Enrollment

Concurrent Enrollment - 2017-18
High School Students in Technology Programs

Want to try out college before leaving high school? Consider signing up for concurrent enrollment. If you are in 11th or 12th grade and have made good grades throughout school or scored well on the ACT or SAT, you might consider taking credit-earning college courses while still in high school. You can enroll in college courses if you meet the admission requirements and other conditions listed below.

High school seniors who meet the eligibility requirements are entitled to receive tuition waivers for up to six hours per semester.
