Concurrent Enrollment

  • Program Overview

    What is Concurrent Enrollment (CE)?

    It is the simultaneous enrollment of a student in both a high school and a higher education institution in one or more courses.  Educators who are endorsed in both college and 6-12 institutions teach these tuition-free concurrent enrollment courses.  Upon successful completion of a course, students will receive college-level credit and meet the high school graduation guidelines.
