Earn college credit while still in high school!
Whether you want to start college now or after you graduate from high school, check out Red Rocks Community College (RRCC) campuses in Lakewood and Arvada, Colorado.
High school students can take RRCC classes to earn college credit and credit toward high school graduation at the same time. RRCC has concurrent enrollment opportunities with school districts to provide college-level courses to high school students at no cost (some restrictions apply). Talk to your high school counselor to learn more.
The benefits of the Concurrent Enrollment & ASCENT Programs:
- Saves you out-of-pocket costs on classes that go toward RRCC degrees and certificates
- Increases your academic opportunities
- Ensures that you are better prepared for college when enrolled as a full-time student
- Seamless transfers to four-year colleges and universities in Colorado
Selected college courses are offered during the school day and taught by high school teachers who have been approved as college adjunct faculty members of RRCC.
Courses on RRCC’s Lakewood and Arvada campuses allow you to take classes side-by-side with other college students.
