Concurrent Enrollment

What is Concurrent Enrollment?

Concurrent enrollment (CE) courses are college-level classes offered within high schools and taught by qualified high school teachers in association with a local community college or university. Sometimes they are also referred to as dual enrollment or college-in-the-schools programs. If you're interested in teaching the Mobile CSP course in a concurrent enrollment format, please complete the interest form so we can email you when the application is available.

Eligibility: Currently, the concurrent enrollment option is only available to teachers in Minnesota or Connecticut. Teachers and schools must agree to offer the Mobile CSP course during the next academic year and recruit students to take the course. Teachers will receive a stipend for completing the summer professional development and the academic year research components (up to $1000 total).
