High School Students

Page address:

Over the years, we have heard from many Concurrent Enrollment students who have referred to their participation in Concurrent Enrollment as “a smart move.” Here are just a few reasons why!

What does it mean to be a concurrent enrollment student?

There are a number of benefits to concurrent enrollment. We encourage you to continue reviewing the website or take a look at our Orientation Video that provides a glimpse of the opportunities that admitted students will have in the concurrent enrollment program. 

Get a jump-start on college!

Based on a recent survey of Concurrent Enrollment students, Concurrent Enrollment credits were applicable to their degree and general education requirements.

Gain a competitive edge!

Competition in college admissions means that admissions officers now look for evidence of rigorous course work on high school transcripts.

Enjoy more flexibility in college!

Completing college requirements in high school gives you greater flexibility as a full-time college student. Many Concurrent Enrollment alums find they are able to pursue second majors, or participate in study abroad opportunities and/or internships.

Learn college-level skills before your graduate from high school!

The critical thinking, writing, and reading skills developed in Concurrent Enrollment courses will prepare you for success in college.

Demonstrate your learning just as you will in college!

College courses typically assess your learning through several means such as examinations, papers and lab reports. Minnesota State University, Mankato courses administered through Concurrent Enrollment will assess your learning in this manner, too.

Reduce the overall cost of a college education!

Concurrent Enrollment tuition is paid by your high school. Additional savings can be realized when the recognition and transferability of Concurrent Enrollment credits allows you to graduate early from college.

Cost of college is on the rise. Enrolling in even one Concurrent Enrollment course has the potential to save you money in the long run.
