High School Concurrent Enrollment Program

Earn college credit at UW-Fond du Lac while still in high school!

What is Concurrent Enrollment?

Concurrent Enrollment courses allow you to earn college and high school credit at the same time.

You will develop college study skills and graduate from high school ahead of the game while learning in the familiar setting of your high school - from an instructor you already know.


All college freshmen and sophomores, regardless of their major, need to take certain general education requirement courses.

Costs

Concurrent Enrollment courses fall within the guidelines of the State of Wisconsin's Course Options program. For the 2014-2015 academic year, a student may take up to TWO courses at any time without cost to the student. If a student enrolls in more than two courses, the Concurrent Enrollment tuition equals one-half the regular tuition rate or $98.97 per credit.

FAQs

My intended major doesn’t require these classes. Why should I take them for college credit?


Actually, all the classes offered through our Concurrent Enrollment Program fulfill general education requirements that are part of every college degree.


Will the college credits I earn transfer?


Yes. As a transfer institution, UW-Fond du Lac has worked hard to ensure our credits transfer easily and successfully to public and private universities. Check out the transferability to UW System schools through the Transfer Information System (TIS).  Students planning to attend a school outside of UW System are encouraged to contact that school directly to determine transferability. 

Fast Fact

A recent Columbia University study showed that students enrolled in programs like ours had earned higher college GPAs and more college credits than their peers who had not taken such courses.
