Ready to find out what MSU Denver can do for you? We’ve got you covered.
ASCENT is a fifth-year high school program that allows students to participate in concurrent enrollment (CE) the year after the 12th grade, to enroll in college courses at MSU Denver, and earn college credit at no tuition cost to them or their families. ASCENT students may be responsible for mandatory fees, textbooks, and/or supplies.
By taking advantage of this program, Colorado students will gain access to the University’s courses, save money, and build confidence in their academic ability to do college coursework. Students will also have access to many campus resources when they enroll in the program and a dedicated College Credit in High School (CCHS) advisor to help them navigate their first year of college.
The program is open to any eligible student in a participating school district in Colorado. Students must have completed or are on track to complete nine credit hours of college level coursework by the end of their 12th grade, meet the minimum MSU Denver course perquisites, meet their high school’s standards, and be selected by their high school for participation.
Earned credits are transferrable to most other regionally accredited colleges and universities. The receiving institution will determine whether transfer credit is accepted.
ASCENT at MSU Denver is offered as a state-funded College Opportunity Fund (COF) eligible programs.
