Concurrent enrollment is more commonly known as dual enrollment. It is when students are enrolled in two schools simultaneously. The steps on this page are specifically related to students wanting to take dual enrollment courses taught by college-approved high school teachers in a secondary (high school) environment.
Concurrent and dual enrollment partnerships and early college programs successfully transition students from high school to college. Concurrent enrollment brings a low-cost college opportunity to students in urban, suburban, and rural high schools. Students gain exposure to the academic challenges of college, while in their supportive high school environment, earning transcripted college credit at the time they successfully pass the course.
