Concurrent Enrollment, Dual Enrollment, and ASCENT

Through MSU Denver’s concurrent enrollment, dual enrollment, and ASCENT programs, high school students can earn college credit while still in high school. Students are able to get a jump start on college, saving families money and student's time.

The classes are taught by approved high school teachers or MSU Denver faculty. The program is open to any qualified student and school district in Colorado.
