Concurrent Enrollment allows students in high school to earn college credit by taking classes at the community college or college level. There are some additional steps students need to take to register for these classes. Please check the resources below for the most current information. If you have specific questions about concurrent enrollment you can always reach out to your counselor.
Concurrent Enrollment is a tremendous opportunity which provides access to college courses at Front Range Community College (FRCC) that may not be available at Niwot High School. In St. Vrain Valley Schools, students from grades 9-12 who demonstrate academic preparedness are eligible for the Concurrent Enrollment Program. Students interested in Concurrent Enrollment must attend a meeting during the semester prior to the one in which they’d like to take college courses.
Concurrent Enrollment Registration for Fall 2021 classes will open on April 26th!
The most Frequently Asked Question… How can I qualify for Concurrent Enrollment courses?
- Surpass the highest level of a content area available in SVVSD. For example, if a student completes AP Spanish, they may take higher levels of Spanish at FRCC.
- Take a course that does not exist in SVVSD, such as American Sign Language or Astronomy, just to name a few.
- Participate in a course at CDC or The Innovation Center that offers Concurrent Enrollment (The Innovation Center and CDC manage all aspects of Concurrent Enrollment for their courses)
