What is CE?
 
Concurrent Enrollment allows APEX juniors and seniors 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 11th or 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.

APEX students enrolled in CE courses must also be enrolled in a minimum of three classes at an APEX site weekly and may be enrolled in Study Hall for other periods as needed. Student schedules and study hall requests must be approved by the APEX Program Director. Please contact Kim Lancaster at lancaster_kim@svvsd.org.

NOTE: Incoming 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.

Spring 2019 Concurrent Enrollment Student Checklist

 

You have indicated that you are interested in enrolling in a college course while a high school student. The State of Colorado provides several options for students who meet high school standards to begin college early. The purpose of these options include promoting content standards, academic challenge and enrichment, and providing access to academic courses that may not be available at a local high school to meet high school graduation requirements. The final grade received will appear on the district’s official high school and postsecondary transcripts. To enroll at an eligible post-secondary institution a student must have completed the minimum course prerequisites and all required assessments. Fifth year seniors do not qualify. Night classes must begin by 6:30 p.m. for approval. For any questions related to Concurrent Enrollment, such as process, eligibility, and prerequisites, please work directly with your school counselor.

 

Please complete the following checklist each semester, and observe the important dates and deadlines in the table below.

        

  • Meet with 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 postsecondary courses. Please keep in mind that if you wish to take postsecondary courses, you must notify your counselor no later than 60 days before the end of the academic term that is immediately before the intended term of concurrent enrollment.

  • Complete Your College ApplicationStudents must apply to FRCC and retain their "S number" before they register at the District level. Students can start the registration and come back to it later, picking up where they left off and/or editing previous input info.
  • Meet with your counselor to make sure the application is completed correctly. 
  • Complete your District Online Registration Form - High schools will require you to submit a Concurrent Enrollment Program Agreement before enrolling in the postsecondary course(s). Once complete, check your email for the agreement form. You will need to print out the Agreement & Registration Signature page, complete it, and turn it into the APEX Front desk before your request will be considered.
 
  • 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.
  • 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.

  • Payment - The District will pre-pay your tuition, minus Colorado Opportunity Fund (COF), up to two courses 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.
