Concurrent Enrollment

What is Concurrent Enrollment? 

Concurrent Enrollment Programs and partnerships provide high school students the opportunity to take college credit-bearing courses. Students registered for a Concurrent Enrollment course are able to take college level courses taught by their own high school teachers without having to leave their high school. Students receive a high school and a college grade for their Concurrent Enrollment course.  

There are many benefits to students taking advantage of Concurrent Enrollment options while in high school: 

  • Get a jump start on a degree at PTCC or transfer the credit to another college.
  • Explore future careers, and in some cases, earn industry-recognized certifications and credentials.
  • Receive “dual credit” to apply toward both their high school diploma and their future college degree.
  • Opportunity to earn a certificate, diploma, or degree from PTCC before they graduate from high school.
  • Experience the rigor of college curriculum at no cost to students and their families.
  • Have a smoother transition when entering college or the workforce after high school graduation.
