Concurrent Enrollment at Provo High School
Concurrent Enrollment gives dual (CE) credit for high school classes. CE teachers have met the requirements for adjunct faculty at university level, and have adjusted their curriculum in order to meet the college expectations. CE classes may give anywhere from 2 – 4 college credits for the CE course.
In order to get college credit in a CE class, students must have applied to UVU and then register for the course credit through the college. The college application fee is $35 and is a one time fee. Registration happens when a student starts a new CE class at the high school
Distance Education at Provo High School
Distance Education gives dual Concurrent Enrollment (CE) credit. For each 3 credit hour class, students receive 1.0 high school credit.
Courses are challenging and range from 3-5 on a scale of 1-5 (5 being the most difficult)
A minimum GPA of 3.0 is required for all students participating in Distance Education.
Students taking DE courses with UVU purchase their own textbooks, pay a $5 per credit hour partial tuition directly to the university through Tuition Payment Plus and a $10 per class administration fee to the high school business office.
The Distance Education schedule differs from year to year, however, for the sake of consistency, Provo High School tries to maintain General Education courses consistent for high school and college graduation.
