What is Concurrent Enrollment?
Concurrent Enrollment describes the status of a student who is enrolled in a college while enrolled in a district school. The student takes the course before or after the regular district school day at the college campus, school site, affiliate site, or online, and earns credit for college and high school concurrently. The District High School determines the use of college units towards high school graduation credits and must be approved by the high school counselor/principal.
When considering Concurrent Enrollment, students should understand that all coursework at any community college becomes part of their permanent academic history. Credit courses through colleges are COLLEGE courses and will remain on the student’s permanent record even if the secondary school uses the coursework as High School Credit. All coursework taken will appear on the college transcript for the student. Grades received or excessive drops may have implications for financial assistance, athletic eligibility, probation, etc.
