Concurrent Enrollment 

Concurrent enrollment classes are part of a nationwide movement to strengthen the transition from high school to college. Through concurrent enrollment, students earn both JHHS and CWC credit for select classes taught here at the high school by high school teachers. These are credits that can ultimately be used toward a degree at CWC or transferred to many public and private colleges around the country.

What you should know about concurrent enrollment:  

  • These CWC credits are offered at no cost to the student.  

  • High school faculty approved for concurrent enrollment have submitted a professional application to the college, have had their credentials reviewed, and are authorized by Central Wyoming College.  

  • These courses create an official CWC transcript. Students are enrolled in a section of a course and a letter grade is submitted to the college. Know that receiving less than a “C” in one or more concurrent classes will impact the student’s cumulative college grade point average (GPA) and may affect his/her federal financial aid eligibility when he/she continues college after high school.  

  • For the 2015-16 school year, we are offering concurrent credit to JHHS sophomores. This is a new decision based on our increasing supports for the transition between high school and 2 or 4-year colleges for all JHHS students. While this is a great opportunity, we do want to underscore the potential consequences (especially the impact on federal financial aid) for students beginning a college GPA that is less than a “C” or 2.0.

  • Unfortunately, CWC is unable to award credits retroactively.

Students register to take a JHHS class for college credit in October each school year. Registration paperwork is distributed in each class that offers the opportunity and requires a student and parent/guardian signature.
