What is Concurrent Enrollment?

Concurrent enrollment allows high school students, typically juniors and seniors, to be enrolled and receive college credit in college level courses. These courses are often taught by college-approved high school teachers, though some states have concurrent programs where courses are taught by college professors. There are several benefits to concurrent enrollment including lower costs, getting a jump on college credits when courses are passed, and getting a feel for the rigor of college level coursework.
