Concurrent Enrollment

Concurrent Enrollment (CE)/Career Technical Education (CTE)

Students are able to take college-level courses to count both for college and high school credit through the DPS Concurrent Enrollment Program. DPS will reimburse a student for classes taken through Concurrent Enrollment up to the community college rate. This reimbursement amount is determined by the Director of CE at DPS. An example of Concurrent Enrollment would be taking a college-level math course and having it also count for a year of high school math.

To be eligible, students must:

  • Be deemed college-ready by their school counselor or principal by placing at an appropriate Accuplacer level.
  • Be grade 10 or above Accuplacer levels or scoring high enough on the ACT or SAT to waive the Accuplacer requirement.
  • The “Accuplacer” is the name of the entrance exam for community colleges.


* Students should contact their counselor if they are interested in Concurrent Enrollment.

* Students should enroll 60 days prior to the start of the semester they will take the class in.

* Students must enroll in guaranteed transfer courses unless they and their parents sign a waiver.

* Students can obtain a list of guaranteed transfer courses from their counselors.
