What is concurrent enrollment? • “Concurrent enrollment” means a student is simultaneously enrolled in a local education provider and in an institute of higher education or career and technical courses. • “Concurrent enrollment” means FREE college classes to qualifying students! • With “concurrent enrollment” the student will receive both college level credit as well as high school credit for each college class successfully passed.
Who Is Eligible? • Any student who is “college ready” and recommended by his/her professional school counselor and school principal may take up to two College classes a semester through Concurrent Enrollment. • College Ready is determined by the student’s ability to place at appropriate Accuplacer levels or recommendation by counselor for courses. • (CU Succeeds or Career and Technical course work, may not require Accuplacer)
Grade level requirements • 9th graders are not eligible for college classes.* • 10th graders are limited to 6 college credit hours during the year.* • 11th and 12th graders are limited to 12 college credit hours per year.* *A waiver form must be completed for students wishing to take college course work above the course limit.
What’s the catch? • The class a student enrolls in must relate to their Post Secondary Plan (PEP). • Students who fail to complete the course or fail the course must reimburse their school. • Grades of “D”s may not be put on a transcript. • Students who withdraw past the deadline must reimburse their school. • A student who fails two college courses will not be allowed to take a third. • Students may only enroll in Guarantee Transfer credit courses unless parent and student sign a form indicating “credits may not transfer.” • The student must be “college ready” with the accuplacer.
What is the accuplacer? • ACCUPLACER is an adaptive test made by CollegeBoard (the makers of the SAT). This means that the questions are chosen for you on the basis of your answers to previous questions. This technique selects just the right questions for your ability level. Test includes: • Multiple choice questions covering reading, mathematics, writing and language use skills • Writing an essay on a familiar topic
