Concurrent Enrollment and Advanced Placement Program

  •  

    The Concurrent Enrollment program provides high school students with the opportunity to enroll in postsecondary courses and earn credit at no cost to them for tuition. Colorado data show that students in Concurrent Enrollment programs are more likely to enroll in postsecondary education, have higher postsecondary grade point averages and retention rates, and have a decreased need for remediation.

    The Advanced Placement (AP) program is a national program offered by Widefield School District in cooperation with the College Board. The AP program provides students the opportunity to pursue college-level studies while in high school. At the conclusion of the AP course, students will take a College Board National AP Exam administered on a national test date. Depending on scores, a student may receive college-level credit for AP classes. Acceptance of AP scores for college credit is determined by each college or university. It is the student’s responsibility to research policies at individual institutions regarding AP credit.
