Concurrent Enrollment

 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
DCSD parents are saving millions in college tuition. Click on the programs below to see a more detailed view of cost savings by degree program. 

Oftentimes, students will combine Advanced Placement credits earned with concurrent enrollment college credits to achieve degrees and certification. To find out more, please review this document, which includes a sample CV 4-year schedule and how these two programs complement one another: Program Overview of Advanced Placement and Concurrent Enrollment at CVHS.

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.

CE courses bearing the "GT" designation (which can be found in teh CVHS course catalog) carry credit that will be accepted at any 2 or 4-year college/university within the state of Colorado.
