Concurrent Enrollment

Concurrent Enrollment is a program allowing high school students the opportunity to earn college credit and high school credit simultaneously. Students may earn credit toward a postsecondary diploma, certificate, or degree while enrolled in high school. College credit may be applied to high school graduation requirements, where applicable. Approval must be received by the student’s high school, counselor/administrator, and/or school district prior to enrolling in the program. Eligible students must meet all course/program requirements and prerequisites prior to registration into classes. Classes are part of the student’s permanent college transcript. Federal and state financial aids are not available for this option. For more information, contact the High School Programs Office.

Approval must be received by the student’s high school and/or school district prior to enrolling in the program. To be eligible, students must meet all high school graduation requirements, have completed 12 or more college credits at 100 level or above, have met all remedial needs, and meet any additional guidelines as set by the student’s high school and/or school district.

Career Academy Scholarship

Career Academy is not a single program, but a series of partnerships between Aims’ High School Programs Office and participating high schools in the Aims service area. The program promotes career training in certain CTE programs such as Automobile Collision Repair, Automotive Service Technology, Med Prep, Graphic Design, Audio and Radio Production, Agriculture, Oil and Gas, Welding, and Customer Service. The contracts provide for a specific number of “slots” each year that are purchased by a particular high school or school district. Based on the recommendations of high school counselors, students are selected to participate. Courses are held at an Aims campus or online. Classes are part of the student’s permanent college transcript and are applied to career or technical certificate(s). Tuition, books and most materials are paid for by the school and not the student. Federal and state financial aids are not available for this option. For more information, please contact the High School Programs Office..
