In March of 2006 the State Regents approved a permanent policy for the tuition scholarship for concurrently enrolled high school seniors. The policy authorizes the waiver for up to six credit hours per semester or summer term. It defines a “high school senior” as a student who has completed their junior year but has not yet graduated. Theoretically, a student could use the wavier for a total of 18 hours of college credit -- 6 in the summer following their junior year, 6 in their senior fall semester, and 6 in their senior spring semester. There are no family income limits or restrictions to qualify for the waiver. The waiver does not cover other mandatory fees (activity fees, facility fees, library fees, technology fees, etc.) or the cost of books.
Concurrent students must obtain a 19 ACT subject score in English, mathematics, and/or science reasoning to enroll in coursework in the respective subject area. Students must score at least a 19 in reading to enroll in any other collegiate course outside the subjects of English, mathematics, and science.
Concurrently enrolled students are limited in the number of college credit hours they are allowed to enroll in per semester. A high school student may enroll in a combined number of high school and college courses per semester not to exceed 19 semester credit hours. For the purposes of calculating course load, one-half high school unit shall be equivalent to three semester credit hours of college work. Concurrent students may enroll in a maximum of 9 semester hours during any summer term.
Each semester’s maximum course load can be determined according to the following formula.
|?||Number of high school credit courses this semester|
|x 3||(multiply by three)||19|
|=||Total high school course load (subtract from 19 hours)||- ?|
|Maximum College Semester Hours Allowed||=|
You are enrolled in 5 high school classes for the semester. 5 x 3 = 15; 19 - 15 = 4
Your maximum college course load is 4 semester hours.
High school students concurrently enrolled in college courses may continue concurrent enrollment in subsequent semesters if they achieve a college cumulative GPA of 2.0 or above on a 4.0 scale.
If you are currently enrolled as a concurrent student at SWOSU and wish to continue your concurrent enrollment for the next semester you must submit a new Application for Concurrent Enrollment. It is necessary to verify your new high school semester schedule and receive permission from parents/guardians for you to enroll. You should also submit a new transcript and update ACT/SAT tests scores. You are not required to submit a new Application for Admission.
