Fall 2024 Concurrent Enrollment Student Checklist  

APEX High School Counselor
Michael Sardinia

Please complete the following CHECKLIST EACH SEMESTER, and observe the important dates and deadlines in the table below.     

  1. 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. 
  2. 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.
  3.  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.
  4. 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. 
  5. Complete your District Program Agreement Form– You must submit a Concurrent Enrollment Program Agreement Form. The status of approval will be emailed to you.  You will need to print out all 3 pages of the FINAL Agreement & Registration Signature form (once it shows counselor, principal and district approval), have both a parent and the student sign it, and turn it in at APEX before you can attend class.
  6. 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. 
  7. 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.
A Note about Payment 
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.

What is CE?
Concurrent Enrollment allows APEX juniors and seniors and highly qualified freshmen and sophomores to enroll in courses at Colorado public institutions of higher education. The intent of the program is two-fold: (1) to provide students with opportunities for additional academic challenge and rigor, and (2) to offer an alternative educational setting which may stimulate interest and motivation in learning. Tuition is paid by the student’s school district when the courses count toward high school graduation. Qualified public school students enrolled in the 9th -12th  grade who are not more than 21 years of age may participate. Students must demonstrate college readiness either by Community College Placement Test (CCPT) scores or ACT/SAT scores. Readiness for students in 9th and 10th grade will be evaluated based on multiple criteria including but not limited to test scores, transcript review, curriculum review, social/emotional readiness, teacher recommendation, and individual interview.

APEX students enrolled in CE courses must also be enrolled in a minimum of one to three classes (depending on the number of approved credits within the CE program) at APEX to qualify. Student schedules and study hall requests must be approved by the APEX Program Director. Please contact Kim Lancaster at [email protected].

NOTE: Incoming freshman, sophomores, and juniors must be enrolled at APEX for one semester prior to being approved for participation in Concurrent Enrollment. This waiting period may be waived for incoming seniors at the discretion of the APEX Program Director and high school counselor.
