Concurrent Enrollment

Concurrent Enrollment Information

The concurrent enrollment program (CE) is a program that allows high school juniors and seniors to earn college credit and high school credit at the same time.

Participation Requirements

  • Students must be a student of record and be counted in the Average Daily Membership at their public education site.
  • Students must submit a resident high school transcript, and be a Junior or Senior to participate in Concurrent Enrollment. ACT scores or SUU Accuplacer scores are required for students who want to register for English and Math.
  • Students must have a minimum high school GPA of 3.0 to be considered for admission.
  • Once admitted a student must maintain a minimum SUU GPA of 2.0 to remain in good standing and to be able to continue taking Concurrent Enrollment courses.

Admission Application Process:

  • Applications are completed online
  • Fall Semester Admissions applications open on March 1st and close on August 10
  • Spring Semester Admissions applications open on October 1st and close on the Dec 20th
  • Apply early. The application process can take 2 – 3 weeks.
  • In order for your application to be evaluated for admission, SUU must receive your high school transcript and the $40 application fee. The one-time admission fee of $40 is paid online while completing the admission process. When a CE student graduates from high school and applies to SUU as a degree-seeking student, the admission fee does not have to be paid a second time.

PLEASE NOTE: It is important to apply for admission and provide the required transcripts and ACT scores (if applicable) early to take advantage of registration at the earliest possible date. For fall semester, registration will open mid-April. For spring semester, registration opens mid-November. (Specific dates will be provided to counselors.) We highly encourage students to be registered for fall semester CE courses before they leave school for the summer, and  to be registered for spring semester CE courses before they leave for Winter Break.


  • Students register online once they are fully admitted to the University.
  • Students receive the Course Registration Numbers (CRN's) from their high school CE designee (CE classes are not going to appear in a search for courses). Students are responsible for registering for only the CE courses. If a student registers for a non-CE section of a course they will be charged full tuition.
  • Registration dates for Concurrent Enrollment students are the same as the university registration dates. Typically, there is one week after SUU starts classes for students to add and drop classes.

Prerequisite Requirements

You must notify the SUU Enrollment Services Office if you are meeting prerequisites for the English or Math courses with an Accuplacer test or high school courses.  Please call the registrar's office at 435/586-7715 to make sure that your prerequisite information is on file  so that you may proceed to register for these classes.

The prerequisites are as follows:

  • Math 1010 – ACT Math score of 18 or SUU Accuplacer test or C or better in all three courses: Secondary Math I, II, and III.
  • Math 1030 – ACT Math Score of 21 or SUU Accuplacer test or C or better in Math 1010 or C or better in all three courses: Secondary Math I, II, and III.
  • Math 1040 - ACT Math Score of 21 or SUU Accuplacer test or C or better in Math 1010 or C or better in all three courses: Secondary Math I, II, and III.
  • Math 1050 – ACT Math score of 23 or SUU Accuplacer test or C in Math 1010 AND C or better in all three courses: Secondary Math I, II, and III.
  • English 1010 – ACT English score of 17 or SUU Accuplacer test indicating eligible for English 1010
  • English 2010 – ACT English Score of 29, SUU Accuplacer indicating eligible for English 2010, or a C- or better in English 1010

Course Fees

  • Course fees are $5.00 per credit. Most concurrent enrollment classes, with a few exceptions, are 3 credits which would make the course fee $15.00.
  • Course fees are due the Tuesday before the University semester starts. The following day any students who have not paid their balance in full will be dropped from their courses to allow other students the available seats.
  • If a student registers during the first week of the university schedule then they have until the last drop without W date to pay their CE course fees or they too will be dropped from their courses.

Online Courses

  • All online courses follow the university academic calendar.
  • Students are responsible for costs associated with textbooks, online providers, or course materials.
  • Parents are encouraged to monitor the students in these courses to ensure academic success.  These courses often have due dates that are wide open, and students have to be self-directed to work on them a little each week.  

Withdrawing from a College Course

  • If a student chooses to drop a course, they are responsible for dropping by the published deadlines. Withdrawing from a course at the high school does not drop a student from the college course.
  • The penalties associated with withdrawing from a college course after the deadlines include: future financial aid eligibility and low GPA. Students must be counseled by the high school CE designee, in conjunction with the SUU CE Office when withdrawing from a course.
  • If a student drops the course after the deadline they will receive a grade of "W". This counts towards their completion rate (number of courses completed over number of courses attempted). Financial aid requires a 70% completion rate. Students (with parents) must be counseled before a student may withdraw from a course after the "Drop without a W" deadline.
  • If a student withdraws from a course without notifying the high school or the CE office at SUU, they are responsible for all consequences. Students should meet with the CE Academic Advisor and their high school counselor before making that decision.
  • An Unofficial Withdrawal (UW) affects a students GPA the same as an F. This occurs when a student does not officially drop the course, but discontinues attendance and coursework.

Academic Standing

  • Students must maintain a minimum SUU GPA of 2.0 to continue taking concurrent enrollment classes.
  • If a student falls below 2.0 it can affect their applications to universities as a regular student, or the status of the incoming student (for example, a student may be put on probation, not accepted, or have a scholarship revoked).
  • CE students are not permitted to repeat a university course while in high school under the Concurrent Enrollment Program. CE students cannot receive an incomplete.  
  • SUU policies pertaining to academic honesty and plagiarism apply to CE students – if a student is caught plagiarizing it is grounds for failing the course and/or being excused from the Concurrent Enrollment program.

Financial Aid

  • Concurrent Enrollment students are not eligible for financial aid. When students take Concurrent Enrollment courses they are starting a university transcript.  That transcript will be used to determine future financial aid decisions during their college career. 
  • Financial Aid Satisfactory Academic Progress.  In order to be eligible for financial aid, students must make Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) each semester (including while taking CE courses in high school).  The financial aid program includes not only loans but scholarships and grants also.  70% of credits attempted must be completed (for example if the student is taking 6 credits and he/she drops 3 credits and receives a "W" for that 3 credit course then the completed percentage is 50%).  Anything under 70% means the student has not made Satisfactory Academic Progress and will not qualify for federal loans in college (and possibly some other types of loans, grants, and scholarships).
