Postsecondary Enrollment Options

All Minnesota students need to be prepared to move successfully from middle school to high school and into an increasingly wide array of postsecondary options. 

Students in grades 10–12 may earn college credit while still in high school through enrollment in and successful completion of college courses.

Articulated College Credit agreements are formal agreements between two or more colleges and universities to accept credits in transfer toward a specific academic program.

Concurrent Enrollment
In Minnesota, concurrent enrollment courses are college courses offered at the high school, usually taught by a trained high school teacher. These are offered in partnership with a college or university. Students who successfully complete these courses generate both high school and transcripted college credit from the partnering postsecondary institution. Many people refer to these courses as college in the high school. There is no cost to the student to participate in these courses.
