ICSD Concurrent Enrollment Application Form

Dear Student and Parent:

Concurrent enrollment is an excellent opportunity for serious students to accelerate their education.  Those students who have exhibited responsibility and academic maturity may be allowed to enroll in college courses while attending high school during their junior or senior years and receive credit at both institutions.

Courses taken under the Iron County School District's Concurrent Enrollment policy are collegiate level courses.  As such, the conditions relative to the course are significantly different from those associated with regular high school classes.  For example, college professors seldom, if ever, contact the home of a student who is having difficulty.  Additionally, students are responsible for their own attendance and behavior, each of which may be a factor in the grade received in the course. College instructors are not bound by any of the policies and practices of the Iron County School District or its schools.  Consequently, in some unfortunate instances, students begin a concurrent enrollment class and then have difficulty, which results in an unsatisfactory grade.  Should this occur, the grade and the credit are the direct responsibility of the student and the college.  If such an unfortunate incident should occur and the resultant loss of credit results in insufficient credit for high school graduation, the student would not be able to graduate from high school.  In other words, the student is responsible for the credit, or lack thereof, that may be earned through a concurrent enrollment program; the school has no obligation to help remediate failures in concurrent enrollment courses.  All financial obligations associated with the collegiate course are the responsibility of the student.  These obligations may include, but are not limited to such things as tuition, fees, texts, supplies, and transportation to and from the high school and the college.

For those students who are committed, concurrent enrollment is an exceptional opportunity.  To apply for the privilege of participating in such a program, complete the application form on the reverse side of this letter and return it to your school counselor or principal.  Good luck in all of your academic pursuits.

 

 

            Sincerely,

 

 

            Jennifer Wood
