SUU General Education Requirements


Enrollment in concurrent enrollment classes is a privilege for high school students extended as a courtesy by certain colleges or universities.  High school students benefit by receiving college instruction and credits with minimal cost.  CVHS offers concurrent enrollment through adjunct professors on the CVHS campus and through Internet classes.  Registration for concurrent enrollment classes constitutes a commitment to do college work.  Concurrent enrollment classes require the responsibility and maturity of a college-level student.  Class grades will appear on the student’s permanent college record, regardless of the grade results.  Poor grades may affect acceptance into any college or university, financial aid, and scholarship eligibility.

Frequently Asked Questions

1.  What is concurrent enrollment? 
Concurrent enrollment will allow students to take college classes while still in high school and earn both high school and college credit  (assuming they pass the class, of course!).  There are two types of concurrent enrollment classes:

  1. Adjunct classes - taught at CVHS by CVHS teachers during normal school hours.   See a detailed list of available classes below.
  2. Internet classes - completed on the Internet from any computer.

2.  What is the minimum GPA required to be eligible to take a concurrent enrollment class?
Requirements differ at each college. A student must have a 3.0 GPA or higher to participate.  Please check with Mrs. Higbee for eligibility requirements.

3.  How is credit counted?
1.0 college semester credit is equal to .33 high school credit.  Since most concurrent enrollment classes are 3.0 college semester credits, they are counted as 1.0 high school credit.

4.  How do I enroll?
Check with Mrs. Higbee for enrollment information to verify your eligibility.

5.  How much does it cost?

  • Students are subject to the one-time university application fee ($45 for SUU)
  • Students may take the course for high school credit and choose not to receive college credit and thereby not pay a fee
  • SUU charges $5 per college credit hour
  • Students purchase any books or materials required for the course
