Concurrent Enrollment

In the Douglas County School District
DCSD offers many concurrent enrollment course opportunities for our high school students. All of these courses are taken in our high schools with current DCSD high school teaching staff members who are also certified by the community college or university crediting the course. Students who pass concurrent enrollment classes with a grade of C or better generate a college/university transcript with those courses.
Savings for Parents
Last year, DCSD parents saved approximately $3 million in college tuition. That is using the lowest priced credits - community college credits - to generate the total savings (the savings would be much higher if we used four-year college/university credit prices).
Credit Articulation
Colleges and universities have articulation agreements with one another, and DCSD students are encouraged to collaborate with counselors and admissions offices to see if various concurrent enrollment courses will transfer in part, or in full, to the college or university that they hope to attend.

Tuition, books and fees are all part of the college/university requirements with all of our partners.
