The Concurrent Enrollment Partnership Program provides secondary schools with the opportunity to expand their curriculum by scheduling KCKCC courses in conjunction with their regular class offerings. Students have the advantage of taking their classes at the high school.

Courses taught at the high school have identical course content to that of courses offered on campus and are evaluated by an Instructional Dean at the College before being implemented at the high school. Faculty are evaluated and must meet the same criteria as instructors who teach on campus.

Students interested in participating in the program should contact their high school counselor for additional information and details on the enrollment process.

Concurrent and Dual Enrollment Defined

The Kansas Board of Regents (KBOR) encourages high school students to take advantage of postsecondary education opportunities by enrolling in college courses while still in high school. The statute is commonly known as concurrent enrollment of high school students in eligible postsecondary institutions. Different types of enrollment can be included under the statute.

  • Concurrent Enrollment
    • Classes taught at a high school at which approved high school teachers teach college credit during the normal school day. (KBOR 8b.1.i)
  • Dual Enrollment
    • Classes in which the high school student travels to the college campus to take courses prior to graduation during the academic year or in summer - (KBOR 8b.1.vii)
    • Classes in which college faculty travel to the high school to teach separate courses to the high school students.  (KBOR 8b.1.vii)

Admissions Guidelines

High school sophomores, juniors, and seniors are eligible for the concurrent and/or dual enrollment program. Freshmen may be enrolled if they meet criteria for gifted students. The college strongly recommends that high school students limit their enrollment to 12 credit hours per semester.

High school students interested in taking courses through KCKCC should complete the following:

  • A student must consult with their high school guidance counselor to determine eligibility to enroll in courses at KCKCC while attending high school.
  • Complete an application and be admitted to KCKCC.
  • Obtain written permission from the principal to enroll at KCKCC by completing the Concurrent Enrollment/Acceptance Form.

  • Upon high school graduation, the student must submit their official transcript to the KCKCC Registrar’s Office.
