Concurrent Enrollment

Welcome to the Concurrent Enrollment Program at Pine Technical & Community College!

We are very excited that you have chosen to begin or continue your college experience with us. By choosing to participate in concurrent enrollment courses, you are making an important decision that will have a positive impact on your future. When you enroll in concurrent enrollment courses, you will experience the rigor of college curriculum, get a jump start on your college education, save money, and get the college experience in your own high school, in classes taught by your own exceptional high school instructors. We hope that you enjoy all the benefits of being a Pine Technical & Community College (PTCC) concurrent student!

Although these courses are held at your high school, PTCC wants you to know that you are an official Pine Technical & Community College student. That means that you have access to all of the student activities, academic resources, and professional staff that are a part of any college experience and, as equally important, you will be held to the same academic standards as on-campus students.

Because you are starting your college transcript, which will be a part of your permanent post-secondary academic record, please review this information carefully and discuss your options with your high school counselor and parent(s)/guardian(s). We want to help you reach your educational goals and the first step in that process is making sure that attending college while in high school is the right choice for you. Your success in college will depend upon you and the effort you put forth. Concurrent enrollment courses provide an excellent opportunity to get a jump start on college and to explore for future careers. Conversely, a lack of effort on your part may result in a negative start to your college experience and permanent college transcript, which may affect your future opportunities in college.

We are thrilled to welcome you to Pine Technical & Community College and want your experience in PTCC’s concurrent enrollment program to be a positive one! We are here to help answer questions and provide support along the way. Don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions you may have regarding your concurrent enrollment course(s), whether or not concurrent enrollment is the right choice for you or questions in general about college.

Strive to do your very best!
