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 one of the admission requirements listed on the provided tables and other conditions listed below.

High school seniors who meet the eligibility requirements are entitled to receive tuition waivers for up to 18 credit hours and high school juniors can receive tuition waivers up to 9 credit hours, subject to available funding.

Course Placement for All Concurrent Students

In order for concurrent students to enroll in a college-level course, they must earn a minimum score in that particular subject area to show college readiness. A high school student who doesn't earn the minimum score in science reasoning, mathematics or English won't be allowed to enroll in those college subject areas. A student who doesn't earn the minimum score in reading will not be allowed to enroll in any other collegiate course (outside the subjects of science, mathematics and English). Concurrent enrollment students may not enroll in any form of developmental education, including co-requisite support courses. A concurrent student will be eligible to enroll based on the criteria detailed in the chart below.
