What are concurrent enrollment classes?

Concurrent enrollment classes are college classes taught by high school faculty who have been approved as community college adjunct faculty who are teaching said courses as part of their duties as a Crook County School District employee. These college courses simultaneously satisfy high school graduation requirements. These courses have been approved by the college as having equivalent course content, learning objectives, and work assignments as an existing college course. Any high school student taking a concurrent course is able to take the course free of charge. This includes any course materials that may be needed. In order to enroll in concurrent courses, students must have sufficient ACT scores or have taken the AccuPlacer placement test through the EWC Outreach office. This serves as a prerequisite for enrollment into most concurrent courses.

The Online Dual enrollment program offers the opportunity for high school students to enroll in college courses taught by EWC instructors. The college credit earned will be applied to their high school graduation requirements as well as their college transcript.
