Before participating in concurrent enrollment students should consult their high school guidance counselor to check how dual enrollment courses will apply to high school graduation and scholarships. Students should also check with a college advisor to ensure these dual enrollment courses will apply toward a degree program.
Students should understand that concurrent enrollment courses are college courses. The amount of work necessary to succeed in dual enrollment courses may be much greater than in high school courses.
In addition, dual enrollment courses become a part of a student's permanent college transcript. It is important to students' entire college careers that they do well in dual enrollment courses.
Students should be able to answer yes to most of the following questions:
- Do you enjoy reading beyond the assigned textbook content?
- Do you feel comfortable missing a high school activity in order to learn something new?
- Do you budget time well?
- Do you begin long-term projects well before they are due?
- Do you leave friends or games or parties and spend time alone teaching yourself new information?
- Do you know how to create a word processed file, to save a file for electronic transfer, and to attach files to e-mail?
- Do you often want more detailed or more philosophical review of course content? Do you plan to earn a college degree or college-level certification in a technical area?
- Do you work in addition to going to school but still feel that you'd like to learn and to do more ?
To be eligible for participation in the Concurrent Enrollment program, students must meet all of the qualifications listed below.

It depends on the course, if it is credit or non-credit and it depends on the transferring university if they include it in their general education pattern or if the transferring colleges department in which you are majoring has the course identified in their pattern of study.

Concurrent enrollment college credit will transfer to any public college or university offering that course with the same prefix and number and must be treated as though taken at the receiving institution. However, upon high school graduation if students do not attend the same college or university where they earned the dual enrollment credit the application of transfer credit to general education, prerequisite, and degree programs may vary at the receiving institution.
