Benefits of dual and concurrent enrollment

  • Lowers the cost of post-secondary education.  Wyoming state law states there can be no cost for students or their families for dual or concurrent enrollment.

  • Enhances curricular options

  • Builds self-confidence

  • Provides a head start on college core requirements

  • Provides students with more realistic information about academic and social skills they need to succeed in college

  • Credits transfer to Wyoming colleges and the University, and are generally accepted throughout the United States

  • In the vocational areas, such as auto mechanics and construction trades, dual credit courses provide a jump start on learning skills that are applicable to the work place, and explore potential career paths.

 

Concurrent Enrollment

Concurrent enrollment courses are CWC courses taught by high school faculty in the high school. Students receives both college and high school credit for the course.

These high school faculty meet the minimum qualifications to teach the college level course, which is a Master’s degree in the content area or a related Master’s degree with 18 discipline specific graduate credits for transfer courses or a Bachelor’s degree and/or appropriate industry credentials for technical or applied courses.

Because they are CWC course, the student will be graded according to college standards and expectations.  The students will receive a grade on a CWC permanent transcript.

Dual Enrollment

Dual enrollment courses are college courses that a student takes directly from CWC. The student's high school has agreed to grant high school credit.  The courses are taught by CWC faculty and the student will be graded according to CWC standards and expectations.  The student will receive a grade on a CWC permanent transcript.

Dual enrollment courses must be approved by the high school principal.  Students can take dual enrollment courses in the fall or spring semesters. Summer courses will not count for dual enrollment.

Eligibility

  • High school Juniors and Seniors.  Younger students who have the approval of a High School principal may also be allowed to participate.

  • Students must meet the minimum placement score qualifications (ACT, SAT, COMPASS) prior to the course beginning to take Math, English, and certain Chemistry and Physics course.
