STEP 1 - Contact Your High School Guidance Counselor
First of all, please contact your high school guidance counselor before making any university registration decisions. Eligibility is determined at the high school level and the university does not assume this responsibility for your student. High school guidance counselors play a very important role in concurrent enrollment as they will adjust high school schedules to accommodate college classes. They will also assist students in completing the admission/registration process in the North Plaza Building on the university campus and Hurricane Education Center.
|To be eligible for concurrent enrollment, the student must:|
- Be a junior or senior.
- Have a high school GPA of 3.0.
- Be completing course requirements at an approved school district through a public high school.
- Be taking at least one class at the high school to be eligible for concurrent enrollment.
- Register for the appropriate number of credits as designated by their high school guidance counselor.
- Remember that college classes are more difficult than high school classes. Students should plan to spend two hours work outside of class for each college credit (example: 3 credit course = 9 hours total per week; 3 in class and 6 out of class).
- Only complete a maximum of 30 concurrent enrollment credit hours in one school year (15 credit hours per semester - fall & spring) in order to receive concurrent enrollment funding. Please keep this in mind when registering for classes. Concurrent enrollment funding does not include the summer term.
- Have their State Student ID Number (SSID) and Student School District ID Number--all of which can be
obtained from their high school guidance counselor. (A Social Security Number is required if parents want tax information sent to them for payment of tuition.)
- Students must provide a copy of their high school transcript with their admission/registration form. Please request a copy from your registrar/high school guidance counselor.
In order for students to be successful in concurrent enrollment, it requires class attendance, participation,
completion of assignments, and successfully passing quizzes and tests.
At the end of fall and spring semester, the students receive a grade(s) on a Dixie State University transcript
which is official and permanent. The grade will affect the Grade Point Average (GPA) for future scholastic
progress including financial funding and the ability to receive a scholarship. These grades are also sent to the
high school to be posted on the student's high school transcript.
