Concurrent Enrollment Program

Concurrent Enrollment (CE) at the Community College of Aurora provides free college courses to qualified high school students.

//// An Exciting Partnership

What is Concurrent Enrollment at CCCA?

The CE Program is an exciting partnership between the Community College of Aurora and high school districts that allow eligible 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th grade students the opportunity to enroll in college credit courses while in high school. CCA’s Concurrent Enrollment team strives to provide students, instructors, high school personnel, school districts, and CCA academic departments with the resources and support that empower students to successfully complete college-level courses during their high school careers and successfully transition to college.

Jump Start Your College Career

Did you know you can get a jump start on your college plans by earning college credit while still in high school? Concurrent Enrollment offers students the opportunity to take college-level courses at either their high school or on the CCA campus!

The Concurrent Enrollment Program consists of three separate components:

Taking Courses in High School

Many high schools offer concurrent enrollment classes at their high school campus. These credits transfer just the same as on-campus classes, with the convenience of taking them at your high school. Check with your high school counselor for more information.

Taking Courses on the CCA Campus

If you are ready to experience the on-campus college life, you may be eligible to take classes on the CCA campuses. Please check with your counselor for more information and eligibility.

The ASCENT and TREP Program

Accelerating Students through Concurrent Enrollment (ASCENT) is a fifth-year high school program that allows students to participate in concurrent enrollment the year after 12th grade, to enroll in postsecondary courses and earn college credit at no tuition cost to them or their families.

The TREP program creates the opportunity for qualified students in an educator career pathway to concurrently enroll in postsecondary courses for the two years after the 12th grade year.
