Concurrent Enrollment (CE) allows you to earn the high school credit needed to graduate along with college credit to take with you. These classes are offered through Utah’s eight public colleges.
HOW DO YOU START?
Meet with your high school counselor. Your counselor will help you select which CE classes are right for you, provide application information, and explain the parent permission form process.
To be eligible to take a CE class, you must:
Be in grade 9, 10, 11, or 12;
Have a GPA, ACT score, or a placement test score qualifying you for the class;
Have parent or guardian approval to register for CE class(es);
Have counselor (or principal) and college approval to register for CE class(es); and
Take CE classes that are appropriate for your College and Career Readiness Plan
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF TAKING CE CLASSES?
You gain first-hand experience with college applications and academics. In CE classes, you’ll read college textbooks, take college exams, write college papers, and learn how much studying is needed to pass a college class.
You gain "college knowledge."
To take a CE class, you must apply for admission to a college, pay an application fee, meet college deadlines, and use the campus online registration system to enroll. This will help you prepare for when you’re a college student
You save money
Currently, tuition for CE classes is $5 per credit or $15 per three credit class. On college campuses, tuition and fees for a three-credit class costs hundreds of dollars. Students taking CE classes last year saved $54.1 million in college tuition!
You earn college credits.
By taking CE classes, you’ll earn both college AND high school credit with each class.
HOW DO YOU DECIDE WHICH CE CLASSES TO TAKE?
Talk with your high school counselor to find out what options are available in your school. Try taking classes that meet the college general education requirements. CE also offers intro classes in career and technical education (CTE) like construction, business, and aviation.
