UVSC TO BEGIN REGISTERING STUDENTS FOR ITS 1996-97 CONCURRENT PROGRAM

SHARE UVSC TO BEGIN REGISTERING STUDENTS FOR ITS 1996-97 CONCURRENT PROGRAM

Beginning in March of 1996, representatives from Utah Valley State College Concurrent Enrollment office will be visiting area high schools to register high school students for the 1996-97 Concurrent Enrollment courses.

Students eligible to become involved in this program are 1996-97 junior and senior class members (these students are currently juniors and sophomores). The Concurrent Enrollment program allows eligible students to take college courses at the high school and receive both high school and college credit.The courses may require them to attend class for one year, where normally they would only have to be in the class one semester. Concurrent classes do not cost parents the price of tuition. The only fee that is required is a one-time $20 application fee upon registering with UVSC. This is a real advantage to those who would like their college degree but do not have thousands of dollars to spend.

These courses require college level work, but the student will receive many benefits if they take an interest in their education. Students who participate in the program have one or two semesters of college course work behind them by the time they graduate from high school.

Students interested in the Concurrent Enrollment program should speak with their high school counselors. If parents have questions they may contact the Concurrent Enrollment office at UVSC, 222-8008.
