Concurrent Enrollment

Concurrent enrollment allows students to complete college courses while simultaneously earning high school credit earned toward high school graduation. Students can complete concurrent enrollment through the following institutions:


  • Students can earn tuition-free college credit
  • For many college courses passed through concurrent enrollment, students earn college credit and double high school credits
  • By obtaining college credits before high school graduation, students can become eligible for the ASCENT program which allows students to take a full year of college courses tuition-free the year after high school graduation (see below)
  • Apply college credits earned toward high school graduation and college degrees
  • Denver Online hosts a variety of Concurrent Enrollment courses utilizing our own instructors
