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.
- 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 though they are on the UVU college schedule. 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.
