The  Concurrent Enrollment program is a great opportunity for a high school student to earn college/university credits which will also fill high school requirements for graduation.  For example, if a student takes ENGL 1010 through Concurrent Enrollment, it will also meet the student's Senior English requirement.  It is a state funded program which funds the majority of the cost but each student contributes just $5 partial tuition per credit hour.  To get started, a student should visit with their high school counselor and make sure that enrollment in university courses is part of your SEOP. 

To participate in concurrent enrollment, a student must:

  • Meet eligibility requirements and be approved through the student’s Career and College Readiness Plan by the high school counselor to participate
  • Apply for admission to Dixie State University and pay the admission fee
  • Supply ACT scores or take required placement tests
  • Be a high school junior or senior
  • Have a high school GPA of at least 3.0
  • Be completing requirements for graduation at an approved school district public high school
  • Take at least one class at the high school
  • Register for 1 – 2 college classes (more classes can be approved by the appropriate high school guidance counselor)
  • Take at least 3 college credits
  • Complete no more than 15 credits per semester / 30 credits per academic year (summer semester is not available for concurrent enrollment)
  • Purchase textbooks and other required materials

At the end of fall and spring semesters, a concurrent enrollment student receives a grade(s) on a Dixie State University transcript which is an official and permanent document. Grades earned will affect the Grade Point Average (GPA) for future scholastic progress including financial aid eligibility and the ability to receive a scholarship in college. Grades are also sent to the high school to be posted on the student’s high school transcript.
