NSU Concurrent Enrollment - Additional Information

Take Concurrent Classes At NSU!

Apply for Admission

Concurrent enrollment must include opportunities for high school students to achieve college credit through a collegiate experience. The collegiate experience is evidenced by the rigor of the course, the qualifications of faculty and the student's readiness for college.

A student who is otherwise eligible under this policy may enroll in a maximum of nine semester credit hours during a summer session or term, without the necessity of being concurrently enrolled in high school classes during the summer term. Students wishing to exceed this limit may petition the Director of the University Advising Center. Institutional officials will evaluate the student's academic performance and potential for success in determining the student's load, which may not exceed the number of semester credit hours 50% greater than the number of weeks in the applicable semester/term.

The completion of high school curricular requirements shall not be required of concurrently enrolled high school students for purposes of admission. Students may enroll in curricular areas where the student has met assessment requirements for college placement.

An ACT subject score of 19 in Reading is required for enrollment in any subject area other than English, Mathematics and Science Reasoning. Concurrently admitted high school students will not be allowed to enroll in any zero-level courses offered by colleges and universities designed to remove high school deficiencies.

High school students wishing to enroll concurrently in college courses must meet the admission standards and the assessment requirements. The college will provide appropriate academic advising prior to and continuing throughout the student's enrollment.

High school students concurrently enrolled in college courses may continue concurrent enrollment in subsequent semester if they achieve a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or above on a 4.0 scale.

Following high school graduation, the student may continue enrollment provided they have earned at least a 2.0 GPA on a 4.0 scale and meet the entrance requirements, including high school curricular requirements.
