In Colorado, tuition is paid by your high school and credit can be considered toward BOTH high school and college graduation requirements!
The Concurrent Enrollment Program Act of 2009 is legislation which permits high school students that meet eligibility requirements to enroll in post secondary institutions while still in high school. It allows you to take courses at a college or university, and your high school district will reimburse your tuition for these classes (up to the current community college resident rate). You just pay any additional tuition costs, student fees, books, and transportation.
Contact your high school counselor to determine the procedures and the approval required by your high school.
For more information about the High School District Concurrent Enrollment Program or about enrolling as a concurrent high school student, contact Donnee Brito in the K-12 Outreach Office at (303) 315-2619 or e-mail Deneshia.Hearon@ucdenver.edu.
