BENEFITS OF CONCURRENT ENROLLMENT

  • Save money.
    • The cost for CE courses is $5.00 per credit hour in contrast to the cost of taking college classes upon graduation.​​
  • Save time in College and High school.​
    • Students will earn both high school and college credit at the same time.
    • CE courses are a semester in length but can earn a student a full years’ worth of high school credit.​
  • Challenge yourself.
  • Ease into college coursework early.
  • Transfer credits directly from coursework instead of an end of year end test.
  • Many CE courses are taught by teachers already in the high school so you/your student will not need to leave campus to take these courses.

ENROLLMENT TO-DO LIST

How to enroll in a Concurrent Enrollment course

For Help with Any of these steps contact Connie Wyckoff at connie.wyckoff@slcschools.org

|

STEP 1

Qualify for the course you want to take.

  • Check the requirements for the course.
  • This may include but is not limited to:
    • ACT test Scores.
    • Secondary Math 1,2 and 3 grades.
    • Placement testing scores- Many of our students will need to take the Math placement test. SLCC has determined that I can set up 1 day for all West High Students to take the test remotely from their homes on their own devices. Each student will receive their scores which will need to be reported back to me.  I will be sending out more information regarding this procedure and dates later.
  • Students who have not yet taken the ACT test may use documentation from their earlier years in school including middle school to meet the Secondary Math 1, 2 & 3 requirement.  This may require a letter from a student’s middle school documenting what students had learned or accomplished in their math education while at the school.
  • If a student was enrolled and completed Secondary Math 1 or 2 at West High during their ELP enrollment no letter is needed/required.  If attendance was at another location other than West High a letter will be required.
  • This documentation will be used by the CE Coordinator to have SLCC approve the student to meet the demands or needs of the Concurrent Enrollment Math courses.
  • After the pre-screening process in complete students/parents/guardians will be notified that they met the requirements and are able to be placed into the CE course at West High School.

Step 3

Be Admitted to the Salt Lake Community College Concurrent Enrollment program and pay the fee.

  • Each student must go to www.slcc.edu/concurrentenrollment
  • Click on the admission tab (ADMISSION TO THE COLLEGE MUST ONLY BE DONE ONCE. IF YOU HAVE ALREADY BEEN ACCEPTED TO THE COLLEGE FOR A DIFFERENT CONCURRENT CLASS YOU WILL ONLY NEED YOUR S NUMBER).
    • You will need to know your State ID number to complete this process.  If you do not know your State ID number, you may reach out to me or your counselor to receive that number.  It is the same number you needed when taking your ACT tests if you have done so.
  • Once your application for admittance has been received it will take SLCC about 2-3 weeks to send you an acceptance letter with your new college ID number on it.
    • Legally for me to assist students throughout the year with their concurrent enrollment needs, I must have a copy of this letter on file in my office.  So, I ask all students to send me a copy or scan of the letter to my email address (connie.wyckoff@slcschools.org) or in person I can take a copy when available.
