MSU Denver

Concurrent enrollment allows high school students to take college courses at their high school. There is no tuition cost to students or their families, but they may be responsible for textbooks or supplies.

The instructors use MSU Denver curriculum, texts, and grading scales to ensure the alignment of the University’s curriculum with high school courses. This academic support helps to create an educational university experience.

By taking advantage of this program, Colorado students will gain access to the University’s courses, jump start their college career while in high school, save money, and build confidence in their academic ability to do university course work.

Earned credits are transferable to most other regionally accredited colleges and universities across the United States. The receiving institution will determine whether transfer credit is accepted. Students will also have access to many campus resources when they enroll in the program.

The program is open to any eligible student in a participating school district in Colorado.

Concurrent enrollment is run as a state-funded College Opportunity Fund (COF) eligible program at MSU Denver. Dual enrollment is a cash-funded program.
