Each semester, the student must complete a High School Permit to Register Form and obtain the approval of the high school principal, counselor, or superintendent or, for home school students, the parent/guardian/teacher.
  • Students must be between 16 and 19 years of age to participate in the concurrent enrollment program.
  • Students must complete all of the admission requirements for the College.

    • Students wishing to enroll in Composition I or College Algebra must achieve a minimum English or Math score as determined by current placement scores.
    • Before enrolling in other courses, students must satisfactorily complete any prerequisites as defined in the College Catalog.
    • Have a cumulative high school grade point average of 2.50 or higher and approval of the high school principal or counselor.

  • To continue participating in the UACCM High School and Home School Concurrent Enrollment Program, the student must achieve at least a 2.00 semester grade point average at UACCM. Students that do not maintain the minimum semester grade point average will not be allowed to enroll at UACCM for period of one year, unless otherwise approved by the Vice Chancellor for Academic Services.
  • Students concurrently enrolled will be classified as non-degree seeking and will not be eligible for federal financial aid. (This will not prevent concurrent students from completing a Certificate of Proficiency.)

  • Students enrolled concurrently will be required to comply with the College policies and procedures.
  • †Students enrolled concurrently will have all Mandatory Fees waived by UACCM unless they are repeating courses.

All arrangements for receiving concurrent high school credit are the responsibility of the student and the high school.
