Concurrent enrollment at Cameron University reaches all-time high

Concurrent enrollment – in which high school juniors and seniors take university courses while still in high school – at Cameron University has reached an all-time high during the Fall 2015 semester. Concurrent enrollment has increased 17 percent over Fall 2014, with 327 high school students participating this semester.

“High school students who are concurrently enrolled are signaling their intention to complete a college degree at an accelerated pace,” says Jon Horinek, Vice President for Enrollment Management and Student Success. “Additionally, these students are saving money. This fall alone, concurrent students who meet the eligibility requirements are saving more than $200,000 in tuition costs.”

Concurrent students are still responsible for mandatory fees, books, parking permit, student ID and other associated expenses.

Of the Fall 2014 concurrent students who earned their high school diploma in Spring 2015, nearly 30 percent are continuing their education at Cameron University.

“Concurrent enrollment at Cameron has been on the rise for several years,” says Horinek. “As that trend continues, we anticipate that a significant number of these students will go on to complete an associate or baccalaureate degree at Cameron University.”
