Concurrent Enrollment Classes for High School Students

Earn college credits from CMC before you graduate from high school

Through the Colorado Concurrent Enrollment Programs Act, you can start college with advanced standing in such commonly required classes as English, math, speech, foreign language, computer science and psychology. Taking concurrent enrollment college and high school credits lets you:

  • Graduate from college early/save time
  • Save money
  • Take care of prerequisites and jump right into the good stuff

You may not even have to set foot on a Colorado Mountain College campus. Many CMC concurrent enrollment credit classes are taught in local high schools and via distance education.

Although many of these courses are taught in the high schools, the course content, quality and rigor are equal to the same courses taught at CMC.
