Students benefit academically and financially by taking Concurrent Enrollment courses because:
Students may take more challenging or specialized courses on topics of particular interest
Students save in tuition costs later by accumulating college credits while in high school
Students may finish college earlier because they have already earned college credits
Students who chose the “campus select” program may earn an associate’s degree by the time they graduate from high school. Tuition is paid by PSD. This means students could graduate with two years of college completed and a guaranteed transfer of credits to any public Colorado state college
Students who successfully complete 12 semester credit hours of concurrent enrollment classes within the “campus select” program may also be eligible for the Ascent program. If accepted, these students would attend Front Range Community College for a fifth year, after their fourth year of high school, tuition paid by PSD.
