Lewis-Palmer School District provides opportunities for qualified high school students in grades 9-12 to enroll in college courses and earn credit through The Concurrent Enrollment (CE) program. Concurrent Enrollment programs may help students significantly reduce college expenses, increase the likelihood of completing college, and develop knowledge, marketable skills and abilities necessary to be ready for college and the workforce. LPSD will cover the cost for tuition for the CE college course(s) based on the Colorado Community College System tuition rate less the College Opportunity Fund allocation. The student/family is responsible for the payment of books and fees associated with each course and securing transportation to and from the campus of which the student is enrolled. Students/families will also be liable for tuition if the student fails the course(s) or proper drop procedures are not followed – resulting in a withdraw (W). Course selection will be in consideration of the student’s college and career goals as indicated on their Individual Career and Academic Plan (ICAP), the availability of the course either on our high school campus or within the desired Institution of Higher Education’s course catalog for the desired term and whether the course is transferable to the intended degree plan when applicable through the CDHE Statewide Transfer Degree Plans. In order to qualify for Concurrent Enrollment, students must:
- Have a minimum G.P.A. of 2.5 and meet all pre-requisites and course expectations.
- Qualify for college-level courses (remediation is only available to seniors in the area of math and English).
- Maintain an accurate and up-to-date Individual Career Academic Plan (ICAP) with postsecondary goals that align to the pursued courses.
- Engage in college-planning meetings with the school Concurrent Enrollment Coordinator and comply with all expectations and procedures.
- Have at least a part-time enrollment status with Lewis-Palmer School District consisting of 2-5 high school courses.
- Be on track to graduate with no failing grades or discipline issues/events.
- Maintain a record of good standing that reflects adherence to the Lewis-Palmer School District Code of Conduct.
The deadline for Spring 2021 enrollment is October 1st and there are several Accuplacer testing events in the meantime to fulfill one of the means of eligibility determination. To learn more about Concurrent Enrollment and the costs, benefits, logistics and expectations, as well as the process for getting started, please contact the Concurrent Enrollment Coordinator at your high school.
