FRONT RANGE COMMUNITY COLLEGE
STATEWIDE AGREEMENT BETWEEN
COLORADO SCHOOL DISTRICT and a COLORADO COLLEGE
HIGH SCHOOL CONCURRENT ENROLLMENT

(Due to your high school counselor by November 30th for spring semester classes, and by May 5th for fall semester classes)

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.

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. Student is responsible for payment of fees and books).

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 ACT (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 beyond two courses per term. PSEO does not include course enrollments during summer session.

High school students 16 years or older may open enroll in colleges 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 state-funded under the School Finance Act, the student is not entitled to tuition reimbursement by the school district.
