Concurrent Enrollment

Important CE Information



  • Concurrent Enrollment classes are college classes. The grade a student receives in concurrent enrollment will become part of their official college transcript. 
  • A student will receive a grade only at the end of the semester and it will be worth 1 full high school credit. For example, if a student receives a B in their concurrent enrollment class, it is equivalent to receiving 4 B's in a high school class for GPA computation.
  • Concurrent enrollment is open to juniors and seniors with a GPA of 2.5 for CTE classes and 3.0 for general education classes.  Math 1050,1060 requires a 23 on the math section of the ACT.  Math 1030 & Stat 1040 require a C average in Math 1,2,3.
  • Many concurrent enrollment classes at THS are broadcasts originating at another location. Students are responsible for using the equipment and participating even when their instructor is off-site.
  • If a student receives a D or F in concurrent enrollment, they are no longer eligible to take future CE classes. In addition, students must pass (with a C) 66% of their college classes to be eligible for federal financial aid (FAFSA) - this includes Pell Grants and Federal Student Loans.
  • Because concurrent enrollment results in college credit, an adjunct faculty member (an THS teacher who is teaching a college level course) is under the authority of the college they teach for. The high school classroom becomes a college classroom for that class. Students who are on an IEP or 504 plan must make arrangements through the college disability center for any accommodations needed.
  • Withdrawal from a CE class after the registration deadline will result in a 'W' on a student's college transcript. Students who drop college classes must meet with their counselor and Mrs. Jensen room 209.
  • Class availability is subject to change based on college staffing.

                      Advance Placement                 Concurrent Enrollment 


Cost:                   $93 per AP Test                    $50 or less one time admissions fee plus $15-$20 tuition fee/class


Pass Rate:          60% earn a score of 3 or higher                               95% earn a grade of D- or higher,

                                                                                                                       80% earn a grade of C or higher




While most institutions accept AP score 3 or higher, it is up to the discretion of the institution how that is recorded. 


CE credit is recognized as regular college credit and is Tran scripted the same way as credit for courses taken on a college campus. If a student transfers this credit to another college or university in Utah, it counts as if the student took the course there.


Teacher Qualifications:


AP instructors must meet requirements that have been established by the College Board.


CE instructor must possess the academic and industry credentials required by the academic department for adjunct faculty.




AP carries a slightly lower risk. If a student fails it is not recorded on a permanent college transcript.


Grades earned in a CE class become part of a student’s permeant academic record.


Overall Experience:


The primary focus of AP is helping students get a head start on college by earning college credit, and to give students a rigorous classroom experience that prepares them for college.



The primary focus of CE is also helping students get a head start on college by earning college credit. Also allows students to learn college admissions and registration processes.  And begin a college academic planning process.
