Concurrent Enrollment
What is concurrent enrollment?

Concurrent enrollment provides high school students the opportunity to take college-credit bearing courses taught by college-approved high school teachers. It is a low-cost, scalable model for bringing accelerated courses to students in high schools. Students gain exposure to the academic challenges of college while in their supportive high school environment and earn transcripted college credit at the time they complete the course.

Concurrent enrollment also facilitates close collaboration between high school teachers and college faculty that fosters alignment of secondary and postsecondary curriculum.

Sometimes called “dual credit”, “dual enrollment”, or “college in the schools”, concurrent enrollment partnerships differ from other models of dual enrollment because high school instructors teach the college courses.

Itasca Community College is a member of the National Alliance of Concurrent Enrollment Partnerships (NACEP). Read more about concurrent enrollment at the National Alliance of Concurrent Enrollment Partnerships.
