Concurrent Enrollment (CE)

Concurrent Enrollment (CE) is a University–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.  For more information, see the Frequently Asked Questions section below.

How do I Enroll in CE Courses?

You must have the PCHS equivalent course in your PCHS class schedule.  Your teacher will provide information to help you register for concurrent courses.  First, you need to enroll in the college that is providing the curriculum.  Then you need to register for the CE course, which may require prerequisites or testing, and pay the tuition fee.  Note that the college has deadlines for admissions, prerequisite test scores/transcripts, course registration and tuition payment, appeals, withdrawals, and refunds.

Frequently Asked Questions about Concurrent Enrollment

What is Concurrent Enrollment?

Concurrent Enrollment (CE) is a University–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.

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 and peers. Learn study habits, writing skills, and test-taking tips that prepare you for college.

Which college is PCHS’s curriculum provider?

Each high school is a member of a “higher education” service provider and ours is Utah Valley University.  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 colleges, such as Weber State University.  The classes are recorded on the 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?

High school students must meet the university’s concurrent enrollment admissions and registration requirements.  Some courses have college-mandated prerequisites, such as GPA and ACT score requirements, or placement testing.

Students may self-select into CE courses.  Students should be very thoughtful about registering for advanced-level courses or accelerated programs.  Seats in regular-level courses may not be available should advanced courses prove too challenging. Successful CE students tend to fit the same profile: (1) They’re independent learners, self advocates, and persistent in mastering content; (2) They’re not afraid to fail the first time and to take risks, as learning is more important than grades; (3) They possess superior executive functioning skills, like organization and time management, in order to complete tasks quickly and efficiently; and (4) They accept and embrace the possibility of an increase in work load and time commitment.

What are the expectations of concurrent students?

Commitment to rigorous coursework, maintain 90% attendance, and complete assignments required by the college.  Concurrent course grades and credits are applied to both your high school transcript AND your permanent 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.

What do CE courses cost?

The costs associated with concurrent enrollment courses is minimal compared to the cost of the same class taken on a college campus.  Financial assistance is available for registration fees and tuition, if needed.

How do I complete the admissions and registration process?

Your teacher will provide information to help you register for concurrent classes.  You can also see our CTE Director, Lyndsay Huntsman, in the main office.  Refer to the college’s Concurrent Enrollment website (links above) for details, deadlines, contact information, etc.  Note that the college has deadlines for admissions, prerequisite test scores/transcripts, course registration and tuition payment, appeals, withdrawals, and refunds.  College deadlines do not get extended!
