Important Facts about Concurrent Enrollment:

Transcripts

Participation in Concurrent Enrollment begins your college experience and  permanent college transcript. In contrast to the Advanced Placement (AP) Program, where college credit is granted upon successful completion of a national examination and no record is kept on the student's college transcript if the exam is not passed, registration for concurrent enrollment constitutes a commitment to enter the final course grades on your permanent college record, regardless of the results. Furthermore, credit is earned by performance and participation throughout the course, rather than by an exit examination alone.

Grades

All Concurrent Enrollment grades are posted to an official college transcript, and a college GPA is established. This transcript becomes part of your permanent college record. Final grades will also appear on your high school transcript and must be identical to the grades posted on the college transcript.

Drops and Withdrawals

All schedule adjustments, such as drops and withdrawals, must be submitted in writing to the High School Relations Office. Drop and withdraw deadlines for Concurrent Enrollment courses are set by the college. You must abide by the deadlines-no exceptions.

Drop definition: If the dropped request is made before the drop deadline, no record of the course will appear on your college transcript and no tuition is charged.

Withdraw definition: After the drop deadline, a withdraw can be made before the withdraw deadline. A "W" grade will appear on your college transcript. Your college GPA will not be affected.
