Concurrent Students

UA Cossatot offers college credit to high school students through several different programs.

  • Secondary Career Center:  This is a skill driven program for students to be bused from their high school to a UAC campus for training in Automotive Service Technology, Collision Repair, Medical Professions, Education, and Welding
  • Dual Credit Courses:  These courses are traditionally taken on your high school campus and count for both high school and college credit
  • Concurrent Courses:  These courses are taken in addition to your coursework in high school and count only for college credit.

Note:  You must also successfully complete each concurrent/secondary course with a 2.0 GPA or better to continue to take concurrent/secondary courses with UA Cossatot.

Regardless of the options,] you are interested in above, you will need to follow the steps below to complete the admission and enrollment processes.

1. Apply for Admission: All students wishing to attend UA Cossatot must first complete a concurrent enrollment admission application.

2. Complete a Concurrent Enrollment Form
- For Secondary Career StudentsThe Concurrent Enrollment Form is a contract between you and your parents to see that you succeed in your UA Cossatot classes. You will need a new one of these each year that you take secondary courses.

- For Concurrent & Dual Credit studentsThe Concurrent Enrollment Form is a contract between you, your parents, and your school’s administrators to see that you succeed in your UA Cossatot classes. You will need a new one of these each semester that you take concurrent courses.
