How does it work?
Concurrent Enrollment is an opportunity to receive required credits for high school graduation while also earning college credit. These Concurrent Enrollment courses cost significantly less money when compared with standard university tuition rates.
Under the Weber State University Concurrent Enrollment model, students take college classes in high school from high school instructors who are certified by WSU to be qualified adjunct faculty. Students are required to be admitted to Weber State University and register for courses through their high school and the university. Concurrent Enrollment students can earn up to 30 credits in one academic year.
How much does it cost?
Students are required to pay a tuition of $5 per credit* at the time of registration. There is also a one-time Weber State University application fee of $30. Students never have to pay that fee again. Books and supplies may or may not be covered by the school district.
*Some courses require additional course fees for class materials
Benefits of Participating in Concurrent Enrollment (CE)
The cost for Concurrent Enrollment courses is significantly less than the cost of tuition and fees for the same or a similar course taken directly through a university. Below is a comparison of the approximate cost of tuition and fees for a three credit hour course through Concurrent Enrollment vs. several in-state universities. Earning credit through CE courses can potentially save you hundreds if not thousands of dollars!
Students who qualify for free/reduced lunch through their school district are eligible to take CE courses for free. Please talk to your CTE coordinator or high school counselor for more information.

Earn a Certificate or Degree
