Concurrent Enrollment Program
The Xavier University Concurrent Enrollment Program allows a limited number of high school students with high-level academic ability to advance their college careers by earning college credit while in high school.
Student Eligibility and Program Guidelines:
Currently enrolled high school students, including home school students, are eligible to apply for Xavier’s concurrent enrollment program. Typically, participation in concurrent enrollment is limited to 11th and 12th - grade students with consideration to students in 9th and 10th - grade provided on a case-by-case basis. All concurrent enrollment program participants must demonstrate readiness for rigorous postsecondary course work and the collegiate environment. Participants must meet all prerequisites for the courses in which they are seeking to enroll.
Admission to the concurrent enrollment program is competitive. Priority consideration for admission is provided to students attending high schools with which formal partnership agreements are established. Requests for specific course placement are honored based on space availability.
Students interested in participating must first contact their high school counselor to indicate interest and discuss eligibility requirements. Counselors or principals must confirm student eligibility prior to enrollment in the program.
