Concurrent Enrollment

What is Concurrent Enrollment?

Concurrent Enrollment courses, sometimes referred to as dual credit, dual enrollment, or college in the schools, are college courses made available through the PSEO program. These courses are offered at high schools and are taught by high school teachers, who are mentored by an NHCC faculty member. Concurrent Enrollment courses are permitted for high school students seeking both high school and college credit. This program allows students the opportunity to experience the academic rigor of college curriculum and strengthen their study skills in a high school environment.

What do you need to know?

  • Prospective Students

    If you are a student from a participating high school, have a 2.0 GPA or higher, and are interested in taking a Concurrent Enrollment course, set up a meeting with your high school counselor to learn more. Your counselor will help you determine if the course is a good fit for you and ensure you will still be on track to your high school graduation.

    If you decide to participate in the Concurrent Enrollment program, review our student handbook to help maximize your Concurrent Enrollment experience. Please review the information included to ensure a smooth and rewarding experience at NHCC.

    Within the first week of class, an NHCC admissions representative will visit your class to help with application and registration. Below are a few quick links to help you apply and register. However, please do not apply or register prior to the course starting.

    Prior to admittance into the program, students must sign an individual signature form.

  • Prospective High School Teachers and Mentors

    We are excited that you are interested in either teaching or mentoring in NHCC's Concurrent Enrollment Program! Concurrent enrollment facilitates close collaboration between high school teachers and college faculty that fosters alignment of secondary and post secondary curriculum. We have created the teacher, faculty, and administrator handbook to help you familiarize yourself with our Concurrent Enrollment program. Please review the information included.

    If you are interested in partnering with NHCC to offer a Concurrent Enrollment course at your high school, please contact Katie Elsbernd.

  • Current High School Teachers and Mentors

    All program documents and forms can be found on NHCC's D2L website. Grades must be submitted within five (5) business days after the course has ended. High school teachers should upload student grades, while faculty mentors officially submit student grades through eServices.

    Both the eServices and D2L website can be accessed by logging in with your StarID and password. If you need help remembering your log-in information, go to starid.minnstate.edu/ for help.

  • High School Counselors

    Thank you for your interest in partnering with NHCC in our Concurrent Enrollment program! As counselors, you are a key component within the program, as you will help advise students to register for a Concurrent Enrollment course and confirm whether this course will help students toward graduation. Another key role you have is signing off on an individual signature form. By signing off on this form, you are ensuring that students meet eligibility requirements (2.0 GPA or higher) and that they are deemed likely to succeed in a Concurrent Enrollment course.
