Concurrent enrollment is offered to exceptional high school students who have completed at least their junior year of high school. Students may begin their college education as non-degree students as early as the summer session between their junior and senior years in high school. Eligibility for enrollment requires that the student submit a completed Application for Concurrent/Dual Enrollment and nonrefundable application fee. The Director of Recruitment and Retention will review applicants on an individual basis. Students are required to submit the following:

  • official high school transcript showing completion of junior year of high school, and a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.0.
  • recommendation for enrollment by the high school principal (page 2 of enrollment form)

Upon admission, the student may enroll for a maximum of four credit hours each semester on a space available basis. Students may choose to enroll in any general education course with approval from the Chair of General Education. To continue enrollment, students must attain a minimum grade of "C" in each course and must be re-approved by a high school official and Cabarrus College of Health Sciences’ Director of Recruitment and Retention each semester.

Upon acceptance for concurrent enrollment the student may be required to meet additional enrollment requirements, such as immunization documentation.

The student may apply for admission to any of Cabarrus College of Health Sciences’ degree, diploma, or certificate programs. However, participation in the Concurrent/Dual Enrollment Program does not guarantee acceptance to these programs. Students are advised by the Coordinator of Advising & Student Success as to the applicability of courses for degree credit.

Students accepted to the Concurrent/Dual Enrollment Program will pay tuition and fees according to the regular Cabarrus College of Health Sciences’ tuition and fees schedule. A student who is enrolled in the Concurrent/Dual Enrollment program is not eligible for financial aid. The required non-refundable application fee is deducted from the tuition of the course taken, but is non-refundable should student choose not to enroll.
