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:

Juniors and Seniors must have:
-ACT Composite Score of at least a 19 OR a 3.00 high school GPA
AND
-ACT subsection score of at least a 19 in the area of enrollment
B. The student cannot enroll in zero-level or remedial courses.
C. The student must maintain a college GPA of 2.00 on a 4.00 scale to be eligible for continued concurrent enrollment.
