The High School Concurrent Program is intended for high school students interested in the challenge of completing college courses at the University of Colorado Boulder. High School Concurrent students earn college credit that may also be applied to high school graduation requirements.

The application process for spring 2014 is now open! If you would like to learn more about participating in spring 2014, please schedule an appointment with your high school counselor or email email@example.com.
All high school students aged 16 and over are eligible to enroll in college courses with parent/guardian and high school counselor/principal permission. Home school students are eligible with parent permission.
If you are a Colorado high school junior or senior under the age of 21 enrolled in a public high school, you may be eligible to receive tuition assistance from your school district for college courses taken during the fall and spring semesters. Talk to your high school counselor about your school district’s policy. Boulder and St. Vrain Valley students can find information on their district’s webpages.
You will work with your high school counselor, parent/guardian, and the program coordinator at CU-Boulder to determine which CU courses will be the best fit for your goals. Maybe you want to advance your studies in math, science, or modern languages beyond what your high school offers. Or maybe you want to try something new. The opportunities are almost limitless!
If you are approved for tuition assistance, you will need to take courses offered by the CU-Boulder main campus. High school concurrent students enroll in main campus CU courses on a space-available basis via a program called ACCESS. Main campus courses are offered two or three days a week for about an hour, anytime between 8 am and 4 pm. High school students will typically need two free periods to take one course at CU.
First, talk to your parent/guardian and your high school counselor about your interest in the program and complete an application.
After your application is received and processed, you will receive an Invitation to Enroll complete with all the information you will need to enroll in courses via CU’s online student portal. Check out the resources below for an academic calender, tuition rates, successful student tips, and more!

High school students may enroll in summer courses, however, district-sponsored tuition assistance is only available during the fall and spring semesters. Participation requires written permission from both a parent/guardian and a high school counselor/principal (home school students require parent permission only). Limited scholarships may be available. For more information, visit the Summer Session website.
