- Concurrent enrollment is a program where high school students (juniors and seniors) are enrolled in college level courses that count for both high school and college credit. These programs are also referred to as dual enrollment.
- Any college course that a student qualifies for and passes will count as a concurrent enrollment where the student will receive both college and high school credit.
- To be eligible for concurrent enrollment a student must have received at least a composite score of 19 on the ACT test and have at least a 3.0 GPA. However, if the composite ACT score is less than 19 a student may still qualify for concurrent enrollment in a subject area where they scored at least a 19 on the ACT. For example, if a student’s composite ACT score is 18 but the ACT Math score is 22, the student would be eligible to enroll in College Algebra. But if the ACT English score of this same student is 17, he/she could not enroll in English Composition.
- The cost for concurrent enrollment for a Junior consists of all the expenses related to the college class (tuition, fees and books).
- The cost for concurrent enrollment for a Senior consists of only the fees and books. Tuition is free for all high school Seniors who meet the eligibility requirements.
- Juniors can take up to 18 credit hours of college courses during their Junior year. There is no longer a restriction on the number of hours that can be taken each semester.
- Seniors can take up to 18 credit hours of college during their Senior year. There is no longer a restriction on the number of hours that can be taken each semester.
- Students can enroll and request to take concurrent college courses at any college. However, you need to check with the college to insure that the credits you take will transfer to the college that you plan to attend after graduation. Most community (junior) college credits will transfer to any colleges within Oklahoma.
- Currently, Redlands Community College offers the following 4 courses on our high school campus. English Composition I and English Composition II are required college courses (3 college credits received for each class) that also satisfy the high school Senior English requirement (½ of a high school credit given for each class). College Government is a required college course (3 college credits) that also satisfies the high school Government requirement (1 high school credit). College Algebra (3 college credits) is also now offered through Redlands and satisfies a High School math credit.
- Yes. We just completed a partnership agreement with WSU Tech (an extension of Wichita State University in Kansas) for our students to be able to take online concurrent college courses at a much lower cost per credit hour.
