What is Concurrent Enrollment?
Concurrent enrollment is an opportunity to receive required credits for high
school graduation, while also earning credits towards a post-secondary
educational goal. Also, Concurrent Enrollment provides students with the
opportunity to earn college credits at a significantly reduced rate when
compared with standard tuition rates.
How does it work?
Under the Weber State University Concurrent Enrollment model, students take
college classes in the high school from high school faculty members who are
certified by WSU to be qualified adjunct faculty. As in a traditional
student-university relationship, students are required to be admitted to
the university, and then have to register for courses. Concurrent Enrollment
students can earn up to 30 credits in one academic year.
How much does it cost?
Beginning in the Fall 2013 semester, students will also be required to pay a
tuition of $5 per credit, at the time of registration. There is also a one-time
Weber State University application fee of $30. Students never have to pay that
fee again - ever. Books and supplies may or may not be covered by the school
Is Concurrent Enrollment right for my student?
WSU recommends parents have an honest and objective conversation with their
student regarding their readiness for college-level coursework. It is important to note that all Concurrent Enrollment
grades will be permanently listed on a student's college transcript. Thus,
students need to be prepared and ready for the level of coursework expected.
