Concurrent Enrollment

Concurrent Enrollment is the term used to define a student who is simultaneously enrolled in a local district High School and in an Institution of Higher Education, which include Career and Technical Education courses. The intent of Concurrent Enrollment legislation is to give students, who may not normally not have access to higher education or career or technical courses, the opportunity.   Generally, students in the GWSD participate in concurrent enrollment with one of the following Institutions of Higher Learning:
1.  Western Colorado University
2.  Technical College of the Rockies
3.  Western Colorado Community College

Concurrent Enrollment Qualifications: 
1. Concurrent Enrollment credit will only be offered to students for courses that are not offered in the school district’s high schools.
2. To qualify for Concurrent Enrollment off-campus, a student must be a junior, senior, or on an Advanced Learning Plan (ALP) in good standing.
3. Junior and senior students will only qualify for Concurrent Enrollment if the area of study identified in their Individual Career and Academic Plan (ICAP).
4. ALP students will only qualify for Concurrent Enrollment if the area of study is identified in their ALP.
5. Under normal circumstances, students will be allowed to take no more than one Concurrent Enrollment course per semester.
6. Students must meet eligibility requirements including but not limited to: meeting Higher Education entrance requirements, having a 2.5 GPA or higher in the high school and meeting minimum qualifying ACT, SAT or Accuplacer scores for specific courses.

Concurrent Enrollment District Funding: Each semester, juniors, seniors and ALP students who meet the above criteria may have one concurrent enrollment course paid by the District. Students will be required to sign a contract stipulating that if they receive School District funds for a Concurrent Enrollment course, they must pass the course with a C- or better (IKF-E). Students who do not earn a C- or better will not earn credit for the class.
