Concurrent Courses

If you are in 11th or 12th grade and have made good grades throughout school or scored well on the ACT or SAT, you might consider taking credit-earning college courses while still in high school. Tuition waivers are applied to all high school students who enroll in concurrent classes; meaning, the student is only required to pay the course fee. You can enroll in college courses if you meet one of the admission requirements listed on the provided tables and other conditions listed below. 


Concurrent Enrollment Standards for Students Attending Accredited High Schools. Students must meet ONE of the following:

Regional University Requirments:                                                                                                     Community College Requirements: 

National ACT: 20                                                                                                                                  National ACT: 19

  Pre-ACT (10th grade): 20                                                                                                                           Pre-ACT (10th grade): 19

     GPA and Class Rank: 3.0 (unweighted) and top 50 percent of the class                                            GPA and Class Rank: 3.0 (unweighted)       


All concurrent students must have a signed statement from the high school principal or counselor stating that they are eligible to satisfy requirements for graduation from high school (including curricular requirements for college admission) no later than the spring of the senior year and must also provide written permission from a parent or legal guardian. A high school student may enroll in a combined number of high school and college courses per semester not to exceed a full-time college workload of 19 semester credit hours. For purposes of calculating workload, one-half high school unit is equivalent to three semester credit hours of college work.

Also, concurrent students may not enroll in remedial (zero-level) coursework offered by colleges and universities designed to remove high school deficiencies, including co-requisite support courses. 


Concurrent courses not only count towards their college requirements but will cover their high school graduation requirements as well. Most students who participate in concurrent classes are enrolled through Tulsa Community College and Connors, but students are not limited to these two options. Most surrounding colleges offer concurrent course. If you are interested in your child taking a concurrent course, please contact Ms. Rose at to schedule a time to discuss your options.
