What is Concurrent Enrollment?
The Concurrent Enrollment program is a partnership between Metropolitan Community College and high school districts throughout the greater Omaha area. Concurrent Enrollment allows high school students to earn high school and college credit at the same time. Classes are taught in high school classrooms, by an MCC-approved high school faculty member, during the regular academic year.
How is credit earned?
Concurrent Enrollment courses are MCC credit classes taught in a high school classroom environment. Both high school and college credit is earned and will appear on a student’s high school transcript and MCC transcript. MCC credits earned may transfer to other colleges or universities. To learn about transferability at local four-year colleges, please visit the Articulation webpage. It's important to remember that the grades earned while taking a college credit course will count toward the student's college grade point average (GPA) and will be a permanent part of their postsecondary transcript.
WHAT IS THE COST?
Current Nebraska High School students, grades 9 - 12, are automatically eligible to take credit classes at no tuition cost. Students or the High School will be responsible for materials, textbooks, and any other associated course fees. Tuition for dual enrolled students will be paid for by federal funding, directed by the State and CCPE. Learn more about the tuition waiver.
Ready to Register?
At the start of each semester, students can obtain registration forms from their high school counselor or a Dual Enrollment Navigator.
Next Steps After Registration
Step 1: Watch MCC's New Student Orientation video and review the dual credit expectations for high school students.
Step 2: Review MCC's Student Tech Stack to access your MCC email, CANVAS, Self-Service, and more!
Step 3: Know your FERPA rights.
If a student is attending a postsecondary institution - at any age - the rights under FERPA have transferred to the student. If a student under the age of 18 is enrolled in both a high school and a postsecondary institution, the parents still retain the right under FERPA at the high school, however, the postsecondary rights belong to the student. *Students who wish to grant parental or 3rd party access to their educational records may do so by submitting an Authorization to Release Student Information Form after registration is complete.
Step 4: Preview the Dual Enrollment 101 Guide and discuss more with your dual enrollment navigator.
