Concurrent Enrollment

Fall 2018 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 postsecondary 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.

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 postsecondary courses. Please keep in mind that if you wish to take postsecondary courses, you must notify your counselor no later than 60 days before the end of the academic term that is immediately before the intended term of concurrent enrollment.
 
Update your Individual Career and Academic Plan (ICAP) with your Counselor
Your counselor will examine your ICAP to approve moving forward with postsecondary courses or other challenging courses.
 
Prerequisites
Colleges may require students to take a placement exam or consider ACT/AP scores to enroll in courses. Consult your counselor and the college about testing accommodations and any course prerequisites that may be required.
 
Complete Your College Application
Students must apply to the college BEFORE they register at the district level. You will need your “S number” from FRCC in order to complete the district registration. Meet with your counselor to make sure the application is completed correctly.
 
Complete your District Online Registration Form
High schools will require you to submit a Concurrent Enrollment Program Agreement before enrolling into the postsecondary course(s). Once complete, check your email for the agreement form. You will need to print out the Agreement & Registration Signature page, complete it, and turn in to your counselor before your request will be considered.
 
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.
 
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.
 
Males are required to complete the Selective Service registration form. Colleges will put a hold on your account if you miss this step.
 
Payment
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. Payment options are 1) District’s RevTrak system 2) check or exact amount in cash.
