Concurrent Enrollment On-Campus & Online Option

High school students can take courses on the Boise State campus or online through the University through the Concurrent Enrollment Program.

What is the Concurrent Enrollment On-Campus/Online Option?

The On-Campus/Online Option allows high school students to take college courses on the Boise State campus or online through the University through the Concurrent Enrollment program. These are not dual credit courses. They are only offered for University credit and are recorded on a Boise State transcript. Students must work their high school principal or counselor to have these credits count toward high school core requirements.

NOTE: High school graduating seniors who wish to apply for regular undergraduate admission as an freshman for the upcoming year should visit the Boise State Admissions web page for details on how to apply.

Admission Standards

To participate in the On-Campus/Online Option, students must meet the following criteria:

  • Be 16-years-old at the start of the on-campus or online class. (Students under the age of 16 must apply through Boise State Admissions.)
  • Have a 3.0 cumulative high school GPA or meet the equivalent in home-school curriculum.

Course Fees

Courses taken on the Boise State campus or online directly through Boise State are not eligible for the reduced Concurrent Enrollment rate of $75 per credit.

  • Students pay the University’s part-time student rate for on-campus/online courses. For Idaho residents, this is $367 per credit for the 2021-2022 academic year. Additional fees such as online course and lab fees may also apply. For more information on student fees, please visit Student Financial Services.
  • Note: Students participating in the on-campus/online option are not eligible for federal financial aid programs. Students are responsible for all costs associated with on-campus or online courses for which they have registered.
Applying is free, simple, and fast!
