College Concurrent Enrollment: IHCD-E4

  • Instruction: I
College Concurrent Enrollment: IHCD-E4


You have indicated that you are interested in enrolling in a college course while a high school student. The State of Colorado provides several options for high school students who meet high school standards to begin college early. The purpose of these options include promoting content standards, providing academic challenges, and providing access to academic courses that may not be available at a local high school to meet high school graduation requirements. All Colorado public four-year and two-year colleges, four area vocational schools and the three private colleges participate in the following concurrent enrollment programs.

  • High school seniors who have completed their high school graduation requirements may begin college under the FAST TRACK PROGRAM (The school district pays the tuition at the time the student registers and there is no limit on the number of courses).
  • High school juniors (11th grade) and seniors (12th grade) who are ready for college work in one or more subject areas are encouraged to enroll in college level work under the POSTSECONDARY ENROLLMENT OPTIONS PROGRAM (School districts reimburse the students for the tuition if they pass the course). Students are entitled to reimbursement for two courses per semester. According to the law, school districts may voluntarily agree to pay for additional courses per term. PSEO does not include course enrollment during summer session.
  • High school students 16 years or older may open enroll in college courses as SPECIAL NON-DEGREE SEEKING STUDENTS. There are no limits on the type of course other than academic prerequisites and placement tests required for specific courses. Because these enrollments are not funded under the School Finance Act, the student is not entitled to tuition reimbursement by the school district.
