GET COLLEGE CREDIT FOR HIGH SCHOOL CLASSES.
Concurrent Enrollment (CE) is an academic partnership that improves student transition from high school to college through valuable course work and college classroom experiences. Courses are taught on the high school campus during regular school hours using UVU approved high school instructors, curriculum, and assessment. Concurrent Enrollment courses will generate a permanent college transcript, so students should be prepared to do their best work. These courses are as rigorous as Advanced Placement but do not require a final exam in order to get the college credit.
- High school seniors, juniors, and some sophomore and freshmen by exception
- 3.0 GPA for academic courses
- 2.0 GPA for Career Technical Education courses
- Other prerequisites for Math and English courses
Distance Learning (DL) or Live Interactive are courses taught in real-time through video conference. These courses are attended at the high school campus through the state EDNET system. Even though they are on Provo High School’s campus, they are on the UVU college schedule. In these classes students can ask questions, interact, and communicate with their instructor and fellow classmates who are also participating from multiple locations across the region, as if they are in the same classroom. All Students should plan on meeting with Mrs. Marshall prior to the beginning of school to know the UVU DL schedule and Orientation dates. These classes will generate a college transcript and are as rigorous or more than an Advanced Placement (AP) class. Students enrolling in these courses should plan on doing their best work and have good attendance.
Why should my student participate?
- To gain experience and confidence to transition to college after high school graduation.
- To complete general education courses that tend to overlap with high school requirements.
- To introduce students to college culture and academic rigor.
What are some of the benefits of CE/DL?
- Students have access to college academic and career advisers. Schedule Here
- Students completing more than 15 credits should consider making an appointment with a CE Advisor. Students completing the Letter of Completion or Associates Degree are required to see the CE Academic Adviser prior to their junior year in high school.
- Students have a way to jump-start their general education requirements for college.
- Students can gain college perks through the UVU Student ID card.
- Courses are transferable to other institutions.
- Students can earn a college “Letter of Completion” or an “Associates Degree in University Studies”
- The Letter of Completion may be requested through the graduation office and taken to any of the Utah Universities to show completion of college general education requirements. This letter is accepted by all Utah State Schools as completion of the 35 general education requirement credits, giving students the opportunity to concentrate on their prerequisite courses for their Bachelors degree.
- The Associates Degree in University Studies is transferable to all universities in Utah as a college degree. Most states will accept the AS degree as a college degree, but there are some Ivy League institutions that do not. Students should contact these schools prior to completing the degree to see if it is in their best interest to complete all 60 credits required for the AS degree.
What are the requirements for my student to participate?
- Students must meet general requirements of 3.0 GPA for academic courses and a 2.0 for CTE Courses.
- English and Math courses require ACT or Accuplacer test scores for students to participate.
- Student must apply to the college and pay the $35 application fee.

- All students MUST adhere to the deadlines posted through the Concurrent Enrollment Office.
- Students may only take a CE course 1 time. If a student does not earn a passing grade or would like to earn a better grade they may not retake that course through Concurrent Enrollment. They will be required to retake the course at the college campus paying regular tuition.
How does a student participate?
- There are three steps for a student to complete in order to participate in the CE program.
- Step 1 is admissions – students must go to the UVU Concurrent Enrollment website: uvu.edu/concurrent
