Juniors and Seniors desiring to take concurrent enrollment courses through local colleges must meet the following CCS criteria, and the criteria specified by the college of their choice. Students may only attend college classes offered after 12:34pm daily.
- Be enrolled in a minimum of 5 hours at CCS (1st - 5th hour). Days which students are not in classes at the college could be used to complete school work.
- May only take courses not offered at CCS. (English and history may not be replaced through concurrent enrollment.
- Must have exhausted all courses offered at CCS - example - must have taken Calculus at CCS prior to taking a concurrent math class.
- Be required to take a math and/or science course at CCS regardless of number of math/science credits as a senior unless a student has taken all courses offered in a field at CCS.
- Be required to take math and science course at CCS their junior year.
- 4 years of high school English
- 4 years of high school math (if 4 years of science taken, then math may be 3 years)
- 4 years of high school science (if 4 years of math taken, then science may be 3 years)
- 4 years of Bible
- 1 year of History of World Views (may be taken junior year as their elective choice)
- Meet all requirements for graduation set by state law.
- Students doing concurrent enrollment will not be allowed to serve as a class officer.
- Juniors must maintain a cumulative 3.5 GPA in their classes at CCS in order to qualify and continue as a concurrent enrollment student. GPA will be checked at the end of each semester.
- Seniors must maintain a cumulative 3.0 GPA in their classes at CCS in order to qualify and continue as a concurrent enrollment student. GPA will be checked at the end of each semester.
- As a concurrent enrollment student, any changes must be made no later than two weeks into the course - such as withdrawal or change in class - regardless of the drop date set by the college.
- Concurrent enrollment does not include zero level courses.
- Full tuition will be assessed at CCS.
- Concurrent college courses will be included on the CCS high school transcript. Grades will not be included in the student's high school GPA. This is not at the discretion of the student.
*A waiver must be signed allowing the high school advisor to check the student's college course GPA.
*If a student falls below a 2.0 GPA in their concurrent enrollment course, they will not be allowed to take any further concurrent enrollment courses. If this occurs as a junior, then they would not be allowed to take any concurrent enrollment courses their senior year. (This ruling comes from the State Board of Oklahoma and the colleges.)
CCS provides a policy that allows students to choose concurrent enrollment during the last two years of high school, however:
1. CCS believes that students should exhaust the full benefits of the high school program, academically and socially, before embarking upon the college campus.
2. CCS believes that students benefit by remaining as full-time high school students until graduation.
3. CCS believes the last two years of high school are critical to solidify faith, nurture emotional balance, and promote personal maturity.
