If you are in high school, you may be eligible to start your college degree while still in high school. This is more than taking a few classes! This program is designed for 12th grade students (or those entering 12th grade) who have the maturity and focus to attend college specifically to earn their degree during their senior year.
Criteria for Concurrent High School Admissions:
- The student is currently enrolled in, or will be starting 12th grade during the first semester of admission at Moraine Park.
- The student is on track to graduate and has demonstrated the ability to be successful in college-level classes.
- The student has no history of attendance or conduct issues.
- The student demonstrates motivation and self-discipline to attend classes and complete work without supervision.
- The student has the written approval of their local school district and parent/guardian. (Requirement Form)
- There is space available in the student’s academic program of choice. This process applies to Associate Degree or Technical Diplomas with 26 credits or more.
- It is the student’s intent to take 9 or more college credits each semester, and they intend to earn a degree/technical diploma at Moraine Park.
Students must submit a high school transcript indicating complete grades as of the time of application (no earlier than prior to the end of the first semester of 11th grade) in addition to other admission checklist items (as applicable). Students must submit an updated official final high school transcript to indicate graduation.
Concurrent High School Admission students are not eligible for financial aid until they have earned a high school credential or equivalent. All courses, material, and book/supply fees are the responsibility of the student or high school (as applicable with Start College Now).
Important Note: We ask families to consider a student’s level of social and emotional maturity that is needed to take college-level coursework. There is the potential for mature subject matter in Concurrent Enrollment and Start College Now courses. Students are considered adult-learners while in college. Regular attendance and progress in courses are not tracked. This is the student’s responsibility.
In addition, parent/guardian communication with the College is limited by the Family Educational Rights Protection Act regardless of student age and high schools status.
