Concurrent Enrollment Admission Information

Concurrent Enrollment Is OPEN!

Are you interested in getting a head start on your college career? Want to try out a college class and see what it is all about? Concurrent enrollment can be an excellent opportunity for you!

  • 12th grade students who meet eligibility criteria are eligible for a tuition waiver of up to 18 hours during their senior year! Students are still responsible for the cost of fees and books.
  • Students enrolled in concurrent courses may be eligible for dual credit at their high school for courses that correlate to their high school curriculum.
  • Students who complete concurrent courses during their senior year and finish in good standing will be admitted to NSU as freshmen and do not have to reapply!

Ready to get started?

If you are a high school student enrolled in an accredited high school, you may be admitted as a concurrent student by meeting the requirements set forth below:

  • Have maintained a high school grade point average of 3.0 or higher on a 4.0 grading scale, and ranked scholastically among the upper 50% of the senior class and have participated in the ACT or SAT test, or
  • Achieve a minimum composite ACT score of 20 or a minimum SAT total score of 1030
  • Have a signed statement from the high school principal or counselor (PDF) stating they are eligible to satisfy requirements for graduation from high school (including curricular requirements for college admission) no later than the spring of the current year. Students must also provide written permission from their parents or legal guardian.

NOTE: One residual ACT is allowed per year (from November 1 to October 31), which is only valid at the institution at which it was administered.

If you are a student receiving high-school-level instruction at home or from an unaccredited high school, you may be admitted provisionally by having enough high school coursework to be equivalent to an individual who is classified as a junior or senior at an accredited high school.

High school juniors and seniors may enroll in a combined number of high school and college courses per semester not to exceed a full-time workload of 19 hours (Example: 1/2 high school credit = 3 hours).
