Concurrent enrollment is sometimes known as "dual enrollment," meaning a student while still enrolled at the high school may qualify to enroll in college-level courses that yield both high school credits needed for graduation and also college credits that are registered on the student's permanent college transcript.
Concurrent enrollment courses are "college level." College level means college level difficulty and expectation, college level grading, and college level consequence. Concurrent enrollment courses are not for every student. Students enrolled in concurrent enrollment courses are expected to perform as college students, and college grading is often much more challenging than high school grading. For every hour of college coursework, a student is expected to spend two hours in additional studies, reading, writing, researching. Concurrent enrollment courses are not for students who dislike homework.
Concurrent Enrollment registration is administered through Utah State University. Be sure to visit with your local high school counselor to see what courses are available at your high school.
