Concurrent Students

Concurrent enrollment provides qualified high school students the opportunity to earn college credit from NOC at the same time they are completing high school credits. 

Concurrent high school students must be eligible to satisfy the high school curricular requirements for college admissions no later than the spring of their senior year. A high school student admitted under the provisions set forth below may enroll in a combined number of high school and college courses per semester not to exceed a full-time college work load of 19 semester credit-hours. A high school student may enroll in a maximum of 9 semester credit-hours during a summer session following the end of his/her junior year of high school.

A high school student must meet the following requirements for admission:

A. The student must have taken the ACT test:

Seniors must have an ACT composite score of 19 and an ACT of 19 in the area of enrollment or a 3.00 GPA and a 19 ACT in the area of enrollment.
Juniors must have an ACT composite score of 21 and an ACT of 19 in the area of enrollment or a 3.50 GPA and a 19 ACT in the area of enrollment.
B. The student cannot enroll in zero-level or remedial courses.
C. The student must maintain a grade point average of 2.00 on a 4.00 scale to be eligible for continued concurrent enrollment.
D. A copy of the student's high-school transcript and ACT scores must accompany the concurrent form.


Concurrent students must fill out the online application for admissions the first time they enroll at NOC. They must also complete the Concurrent Admissions Form and provide an official high school transcript and ACT scores each semester they enroll concurrently.
