Concurrent enrollment (CE) at CCD allows students to take college classes in high school that seamlessly transfer their classes to a four-year college or to earn a credential and go straight to work.

High schools determine who is eligible for concurrent enrollment, so please reach out to your school counselor for information to get you started.

High schools also vary on the types of opportunities they offer students. The options are below.

The general Concurrent Enrollment Program provides high school students with the opportunity to enroll in postsecondary courses while simultaneously earning high school credit – at no cost to the student. These concurrent enrollment opportunities exist at all high schools. Students can take college course work at their high school (high school select) or on our college campus locations (college select). 

Accelerating Students through Concurrent Enrollment (ASCENT) is a program that allows admitted students to remain a high school student for a 5th year while they take college courses.

Pathways in Technology Early College High School is a program that pairs a high school, an employer(s), and Community College of Denver together to create a pathway for the student directly from high school to the working world.

Early College High School (EC) is a program by which a student can earn both a high school diploma and a college credential simultaneously.

Classes students take through concurrent enrollment count for credit toward college and toward high school graduation simultaneously.

Courses taken as concurrent enrollment must apply to a program of study (a major) here at CCD or, if you are unsure of your major, they must apply to the general education core of classes that every Colorado college will require.

The high schools listed below are in the CCD service area and may offer CCD courses at their campuses and/or send students to CCD campus locations.

Please check with the CCD College Pathways office or your high school counselor for the most up-to-date information.
