AN OPPORTUNITY FOR HIGH SCHOOL JUNIORS AND SENIORS TO:
do advanced work and receive college credit at OU
investigate new areas of academic interest
explore professional and career possibilities.
The Concurrent Enrollment Program at the University of Oklahoma is a program designed to allow high school juniors and seniors with exceptional abilities to enroll in college courses on a limited basis.
The Concurrent Enrollment Program permits you to accumulate college credits prior to completing high school. It may allow you to pursue interests that you have developed in high school in a more concentrated or advanced manner, or to pursue new interests not available at your high school.
If you are admitted to the University of Oklahoma as part of the Concurrent Enrollment Program, you will be advised and permitted to enroll in regularly offered courses, as long as you meet the prerequisites, if any, and have satisfied the high school curricular requirements in the subject areas.
You may wish to take advanced coursework in areas you have already begun to study, such as mathematics, science, etc. Or, you may choose to examine entirely new fields to which you are attracted, such as art history, engineering or Asian studies, at the introductory level. Most importantly, the program can help you in planning a future career or profession by allowing you to explore alternatives early in your academic life.
Regardless of the area you choose, or the reasons which motivate you, the resources of the University of Oklahoma are available to you in pursuing this new and exciting educational opportunity.
The combined total of your enrollment at your high school and at the University of Oklahoma may not exceed 19 semester hours without special permission. For this purpose, the University will assume that any high school course enrollment is the equivalent of 3 semester hours. As an example, if you will be enrolled in two high school courses in your last high school semester, you could enroll in up to 13 semester hours of coursework at the University. You may enroll in a maximum of 9 semester hours during a summer session without being concurrently enrolled in high school classes during the summer term. If you wish to exceed the enrollment maximums, contact the Dean of University College at (405) 325-3521.
OU courses completed under the Concurrent Enrollment Program will count as regular college credits earned at the University of Oklahoma.
Yes. You will be enrolled, examined, and evaluated in the same manner as any other student in the course.
To be eligible for the Concurrent Enrollment Program, you must satisfy these criteria:
You will be charged the regular tuition rates established by the University.* The exact cost will depend upon the number of credit hours in which you enroll and the level of the courses. Students enrolled through the Concurrent Enrollment Program are not eligible for financial aid. Information on tuition rates can be found at the OU Office of the Bursar.
*High school seniors who attend OU as Concurrent Enrollment students are eligible for a tuition waiver for up to six credit hours per semester or summer session (excluding Intersession courses and course offered through the College of Continuing Education). A high school senior is defined as student who has completed his or her junior year, but has not yet graduated from high school. There are no family income levels to qualify for this waiver. The waiver does not cover other mandatory fees (activity fees, facility fees, library fees, technology fees, etc) or the cost of books.
The University of Oklahoma, with the approval of the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education, may alter admissions requirements at any time, when it is in the best interest of the University and its students to do so.
Discuss the Concurrent Enrollment Program with your high school principal. He or she must recommend you for enrollment.
