College Credit/Concurrent Enrollment

Concurrent Enrollment is a partnership made possible through agreements between Douglas County School District and the following post-secondary institutions:

Arapahoe Community College
Red Rocks Community College
Metro State University
CSU Pueblo

These programs benefit students by lowering the cost of college, increasing the flexibility of academic options, increasing the ease of access to college coursework and preparing students for a seamless transfer into college.

Students have two options:

Option 1:
High School Concurrent Enrollment
  • Courses offered in DCSD high schools
  • Taught by DCSD high school teachers who meet current HLC faculty guidelines
  • Tuition paid by DCSD
  • Student pays textbook and/or course fees

To register for classes, please read the scenarios below and follow the directions for the one that applies to you:

  • If it is a Concurrent Enrollment course offered in your home high school, use your high school's regular registration process.
  • If it is a Concurrent Enrollment course offered at a different DCSD high school than your home high school, work with your counselor to get enrolled in the course. This is managed between counselors at both partnering DCSD high schools.
    • If it is a Career & Technical Education Concurrent Enrollment course offered at a different DCSD high school than your home high school, find the program listed in the Courses menu


Option 2: 
College Campus Concurrent Enrollment 
  • Courses offered on a college campus and taught by college faculty.
  • Must be a course not offered in DCSD.
