What is a Concurrent Student?
A concurrent student is a high school student who takes college classes while they’re still in high school.

How will I benefit?
There are many benefits of taking college classes while you’re still in high school. You can earn college credits early, challenge yourself academically, get a taste of the academic and social aspects of college life and receive free tuition (for up to six credit hours per semester).

Am I eligible?
Students from accredited high schools must have a minimum ACT composite scores of 19, the SAT equivalent score, or a 3.0 high school GPA.

Home schooled students and students from unaccredited high schools must have completed enough high school coursework to be equivalent to at least junior status at an accredited high school, as well as provide a minimum ACT composite scores of 19 or the SAT equivalent score.

For placement into courses, concurrent students must have a minimum ACT subscore of 19, the SAT equivalent, or a placement exam equivalent score in the desired subject area.

How much does it cost?
For Oklahoma residents, RSU offers free tuition for up to six credit hours per semester to high school juniors and seniors who choose to take classes through the Concurrent Enrollment Program. That’s right – you will not be required to pay tuition! You will be required to pay regular class fees.

How do I get started?
To gain admission to the Concurrent Enrollment Program, follow the steps above. Permissions from your parent or guardian and your high school principal or counselor are required to participate in the program. These permissions will be given electronically as part of your application process.

Which classes can I take?
You may enroll in any general education class. RSU offers hundreds of eligible classes each semester, such as algebra, biology, English composition, government, history, humanities, psychology, and more (see the class schedule). Remember, you must obtain ACT sub-scores of 19 or above in desired concurrent subject areas.

How many classes can I take?
You may enroll in up to 19 hours of combined high school and college classes each semester. For purposes of calculating course load, one-half high school unit will be equivalent to three semester credit hours of college work.

When can I take my college classes?
You may take your classes whenever your high school class schedule will allow, during the day or evening. RSU offers classes at convenient times during the day or evening on our campuses in Claremore, Bartlesville and Pryor.

Can I take classes online?
Yes, you may complete your classes entirely via the Internet through the RSU Online Program. Remember, online classes are just as challenging (if not more so) than regular “in-person” classes.

Will my classes transfer to another college or university?
The classes you complete through the RSU Concurrent Enrollment Program will count toward your requirements at Rogers State University or will transfer to any public college or university in Oklahoma (and most private and out-of-state institutions.)
