Concurrent Enrollment

Spring 2020 Concurrent Enrollment Student Checklist

You have indicated that you are interested in enrolling in a college course while a high school student. The State of Colorado provides several options for students who meet high school standards to begin college early. The purpose of these options include promoting content standards, academic challenge and enrichment, and providing access to academic courses that may not be available at a local high school to meet high school graduation requirements. The final grade received will appear on the district’s official high school and post-secondary transcripts. To enroll at an eligible post-secondary institution a student must have completed the minimum course prerequisites and all required assessments. Fifth year seniors do not qualify. Night classes must begin by 6:30 p.m. for approval. For any questions related to Concurrent Enrollment, such as process, eligibility, and prerequisites, please work directly with your school counselor.

Please complete the following checklist each semester, and observe the important dates and deadlines in the table below.

  1. Meet with your School Counselor
    Your counselor can share information about the Concurrent Enrollment Program that allows students in 11th and 12th grade to concurrently enroll in post-secondary courses. 
  2. Update your Individual Career and Academic Plan (ICAP) with your Counselor Your counselor will examine your ICAP to approve moving forward with post-secondary courses or other challenging courses.
  3. Complete Your College Application
    Students must apply to the college they plan to attend. Meet with your counselor to make sure the application is completed correctly. For Front Range Community College only, this step must be completed before moving to step 4.
  4. Register with the School District
    You must submit a Concurrent Enrollment Program Agreement Form. Status of approval will be emailed to you. You will need to print out the Agreement & Registration Signature page, complete it, and turn in to your counselor before you can attend class.
  5. Sign up for the College Opportunity Fund
    The College Opportunity Fund (COF) stipend pays a portion of your total in-state tuition when you attend a Colorado public institution or a participating private institution. The stipend is paid on a per credit hour basis to the institution at which you are enrolled and will be deducted from the designated COF fund.
  6. Register for your Course(s)
    Once you have completed this checklist and are approved by your school and district to take a Concurrent Enrollment class, you will need to register at the college of choice for your course(s), pay any fees (if applicable), and purchase your textbooks.


The District will pre-pay your tuition, minus Colorado Opportunity Fund (COF), up to two courses per semester. The District is not responsible for payment of any additional fees other than tuition. Additional fees owed to the college must be paid directly to the college and are the student’s responsibility. Any student receiving a D, F, Withdrawal (after drop date) or Incomplete will be held responsible (along with parent/guardian) to reimburse the District for tuition.
