Spring 2023 Concurrent Enrollment Student Checklist
Please complete the following checklist each semester, and observe the important dates and deadlines.
Please complete the following checklist each semester, and observe the important dates and deadlines in the table below.
- Contact your School Counselor - Your counselor can share information about the Concurrent Enrollment Program that allows students in 11th and 12th grade to concurrently enroll in post-secondary courses (highly qualified 9th and 10th graders will be considered for acceptance pending an eligibility review). If you are a returning CE student, you may reach out to Mr. Sardinia by email. If you are new to CE, you MUST sign up for a time to meet with him.
- Update your Individual Career and Academic Plan (ICAP) with your Counselor - Your counselor will examine your ICAP to approve moving forward with post-secondary courses or other challenging courses.
- Prerequisites - Colleges may require students to take a placement exam or consider ACT/AP scores to enroll in courses. Consult your counselor and the college about testing accommodations and any course prerequisites that may be required.
- Complete Your College Application - Students must apply to the college they plan to attend. For Front Range Community College only, this step must be completed before moving to step 5. You will need your "S number" in order to complete the district registration. Meet with your counselor to make sure the application is completed correctly.
- Register with the School District – You must submit a Concurrent Enrollment Program Agreement Form. Status of approval will be emailed to you. You will need to print out the Agreement & Registration Signature page, complete it, and turn in to your counselor before you can attend class.
- Register for your Course(s) - Once you have completed this checklist and are approved by your school and district to take a Concurrent Enrollment class, you will need to register at the college of choice for your course(s), pay any fees (if applicable), and purchase your textbooks.
- Sign up for the College Opportunity Fund - The College Opportunity Fund (COF) stipend pays a portion of your total in-state tuition when you attend a Colorado public institution or a participating private institution. The stipend is paid on a per credit hour basis to the institution at which you are enrolled and will be deducted from the designated COF fund.
- Males are required to complete the Selective Service registration form. Colleges will put a hold on your account if you miss this step.
- Payment - The District will pre-pay your tuition, minus Colorado Opportunity Fund (COF), up to twelve credits per semester.
- The District is not responsible for payment of any additional fees other than tuition. Additional fees owed to the college must be paid directly to the college and are the student’s responsibility. Any student receiving a D, F, Withdrawal (after drop date) or Incomplete will be held responsible (along with parent/guardian) to reimburse the District for tuition. Payment options are 1) District’s RevTrak system 2) check or exact amount in cash. Students who qualify for free or reduced lunch also qualify for the district to pay the cost of books and fees.
