What is Concurrent Enrollment?
These courses are offered at high schools and are taught by high school teachers with required credentials, who are mentored by a Saint Paul College faculty member. Concurrent Enrollment courses are permitted for high school students seeking both high school and college credit. This program allows students the opportunity to experience the academic rigor of college curriculum and strengthen their study skills in a high school environment. Concurrent Enrollment is similar to Postsecondary Enrollment Options (PSEO), which allows students to take college courses on Saint Paul College’s campus.
Concurrent Enrollment courses are sometimes referred to as dual credit, dual enrollment, or college in the schools. Additional background is available at Minnesota Department of Education and National Alliance of Concurrent Enrollment Partnerships.
