Dual Credit Courses, whether they are taken at the high school where the student is enrolled or at a post-secondary institution, are courses for which the student has been granted permission to earn both Carnegie units (high school) and college credit. Students must have prior permission to enroll for dual credit and meet the requirements specified by the college. Students are responsible for verifying any college’s acceptance of credits earned as dual credit. Enrollment in a dual credit course does not guarantee college acceptance. Please contact your school counselor for information regarding available dual credit options.
Concurrent Enrollment allows students to access funds to study at the postsecondary level while still in high school. Through this program, students may earn both high school and college credit. Students who would not typically access college without an “advance” start, students with significant academic needs and students who have exhausted district curriculum may be interested in the Colorado Springs School District 11 Enrollment Program (CE). An up to date Individual Career and Academic Plan (ICAP) is required. Tuition, books and other college course fees shall be at the expense of the student or his/her parents or legal guardians.For more information, please consult with your high school counselor.
