Concurrent Courses 

High school students (9th-12th grade) may take concurrent courses for a flat rate of $125 per class. Juniors and seniors are able to take up to two concurrent courses for free per semester through the Concurrent Challenge Scholarship. No extra paperwork is required by the student for this scholarship as the High School Programs department ensures their information is submitted to state institutions for reimbursement.

All dual/concurrent enrollment courses taken at UA Cossatot will count for college credit and will be included on UAC transcripts. UA Cossatot does not award high school credit. It is the student’s responsibility to request high school credit from their high school counselor or career coach.
