Concurrent Enrollment Programs


Concurrent Enrollment Programs
Developing great minds to compete worldwide

Start earning your college credits while you are still in high school! 
Pueblo City Schools offers a dual-enrollment program through our community partnerships with Pueblo Community College and Colorado State University-Pueblo. This concurrent enrollment opportunity allows for students to take college/university course work while earning their high school diploma. By creating pathways between high schools and institutions of higher education, PCS is fulfilling the Colorado Promise of doubling the number of post-secondary degrees earned by Coloradans and reducing the number of drop-out students in the state.

There are four different Concurrent Enrollment Programs provided by Pueblo City Schools: Concurrent Enrollment- Guarantee Transfer (CE-GT), Concurrent Enrollment- Career and Technical Education (CE-CTE), Pueblo Early College Education Program (PECEP) and Accelerating Students through Concurrent Enrollment (ASCENT). Each Concurrent Enrollment program has a different set of eligibility requirements. A limited number of students are accepted into the Concurrent Enrollment Programs based on an application process and available spaces.

Am I eligible?

If you are a Pueblo City Schools junior or senior you need to successfully pass the college-level Accuplacer test and meet all course requirements set forth by Pueblo City Schools for each program. Sophomores are accepted into the program on a part-time basis if space is available.

When can I start?
If you are considering full-time concurrent enrollment you can start as early as your sophomore year if space is available. New applications are accepted every spring for the next school year. Part-time concurrent enrollment at either PCC or CSUP, you may start taking classes your junior year if space is available.

How much will it cost me to get ahead with my education? 
Tuition is paid for by Pueblo City Schools.  Depending on which program you choose you may be responsible for books and fees.  All students need to provide their own transportation to the college campus they are enrolled.


Do I have to give up my high school extracurricular activities?
That is a choice you will have to make, but as a Concurrent Enrollment student you have no restrictions on your high school activities. Actually, you are encouraged to make the most of your high school years. An important point to remember though is how best to manage your time and organization. We want you to succeed, in high school and in college, so make wise choices as you prepare for your future.

I’m ready…how do I get started?
Visit with your high school counselor and s/he will help you explore your options.
