Highland’s Concurrent Program provides area Kansas secondary schools with the opportunity to expand their curriculum by scheduling HCC courses in conjunction with their regular class offerings. Students have the advantage of taking their collegeclasses right at the high school during the day.
Highland courses taught at the high school have the identical course content of courses offered on campus, online, and in our regional classes. Classes are evaluated by the Highland Director of Concurrent Enrollment and the Vice President of Academic Affairs before being implemented at the high school. Faculty are evaluated and must meet the Kansas Board of Regents criteria.
Students interested in participating in the program should contact their high school counselor or Sara Smith, the Highland Director of Concurrent Enrollment, for additional information and details on the enrollment process.
Concurrent 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 commonly is known as Concurrent Enrollment of High School Students in Eligible Postsecondary Institutions.
