What is Concurrent Enrollment?
Concurrent Enrollment is a University/College–High School partnership program where qualified students can earn college credit. College classes are taught at Park City High School by college-approved Park City High School teachers using college curriculum and assessment. Some classes can count towards general education college requirements, while others count as specific requirements towards a college major. The cost to the student is minimal compared to the cost of the same class taken on a college campus.
Each high school is a member of a “higher education” service provider and ours is Utah Valley University (www.uvu.edu/concurrent). Most of the concurrent enrollment courses we offer are through Utah Valley University, however, when they are unable to offer classes for our students to take, we have the opportunity to contract with other universities/schools. The classes are recorded on a student’s college transcript just as if they were a college student. Most in-state schools will transfer credits from one university to another. Out of state schools will need to be contacted individually to see if credits will transfer.
Who is eligible to participate? Qualifying high school juniors and seniors (and sophomores by special exception). Some courses have a GPA and/or ACT requirements. College entrance exams and/or placement testing may also be required.
Why enroll in concurrent classes? Earn credit for both high school graduation and college coursework. Take your classes at Park City High School with your teachers. Learn study habits, writing skills, and test-taking tips that prepare you for college.
What are the expectations of concurrent students? Commitment to rigorous coursework, maintain 90% attendance, and complete assignments required by the college. UVU Concurrent course grades and credits are applied to both your high school transcript AND your permanent UVU college transcript—students should take their CE courses seriously. 504 and IEP accommodations are determined by the college issuing credit and may be different than those provided by PCHS.
How do I complete the admissions and registration process? Your teacher will provide information to help you register for concurrent classes. Go to the college’s Concurrent Enrollment website for details, deadlines, contact information, etc. Note the deadlines for admissions, prerequisite test scores/transcript requests, course registration and tuition payment, appeals, freshman/sophomore exceptions, withdrawals, and refunds. Deadlines do not get extended!
See the UVU Concurrent Enrollment Website for information about Utah Valley University Concurrent Enrollment. And here are direct links to UVU’s Deadlines, Course Prerequisites, Sophomore Exception Application, and UVU CE Course Listing (this is where you find the course CRN for registration).
NOTE: The UVU Wasatch campus no longer offers the Accuplacer placement exam. The Accuplacer is only available at the UVU Orem campus.
