Secondary Career Center

To determine student eligibility in the Secondary Career Center, it is best to contact your high school counselor. Generally, students must have a GPA of 2.0 to 4.0 to be considered to take concurrent classes through the Secondary Career Center. Visit our Apply & Enroll page for further concurrent admissions requirements.

Students who are concurrently enrolled must maintain a 2.0 GPA in UA Cossatot classes. Failure to achieve a 2.0 GPA will result in the student being barred from enrollment in additional UA Cossatot classes until after graduation from high school.
