Think of Concurrent Enrollment (CE) as an opportunity to explore what it is like to be a college student:
- CE classes are college classes. You experience college academics first-hand: read a college textbook, take college exams, write college papers, and learn how much studying is needed to pass a college class. CE classes are taught by college instructors.
- 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. Talk to a college CE advisor about choosing classes, how to pay for college, and exploring majors that meet your interests and career goals.
- You save money. Through the CE program, you can take college classes at a deeply discounted cost. Currently, tuition for CE classes is $5 per credit, $15 per three credit class. On college campuses, tuition and fees for a three credit class costs between $450 and $1,600. This low-cost opportunity is possible because of funding from state government and support from colleges, school districts, and charter schools. Students taking CE classes last year saved $34.9 million in tuition.
- You earn both college AND high school credit with each class.
