Concurrent Enrollment

Concurrent Enrollment (CE) gives students the opportunity to enroll in postsecondary education courses and earn college credit at no additional tuition cost* as part of your high school educational journey.

The Weld RE-4 School District will pay tuition up to the community college rate, minus the COF, if applicable. The district is not responsible for any fees associated; only tuition. All college fees are the student’s responsibility, and will be billed directly through the student’s college portal and paid directly to the college.

Students are able to earn college credit through CE by taking college-level courses offered at your high school, at participating college campuses, or online with participating institutions. CE courses are updated on an annual basis and may change due to staff availability.
