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.
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.
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.
Students 16 years of age and older: Complete and submit the on-campus/online application to firstname.lastname@example.org.
This form should not be submitted to the Boise State Admissions Office.
Note: Students under the age of 16 must apply through the Boise State Admissions Office as a non-degree seeking undergraduate student.
Students must meet all listed pre-requisites for the class they want to enroll in. Students can use ACT, SAT, AP, or placement exam scores to satisfy pre-requisites. The most common classes that require exam scores are:
- Math Classes – Students who want to enroll in a math class can take the ACCUPLACER math placement exam to determine which course(s) they can enroll in. The ACCUPLACER exam costs $20 and is offered on a walk-in-basis. Visit the University Testing Service’s webpage to learn more about the ACCUPLACER exam, hours of operation, and location. Please include a copy of the results with your application after taking the exam. ACT, SAT, and AP math scores can also be used for placement into Math classes. For more information visit the Boise State Registrar’s Placement Exams and Credit for Prior Learning web pages.
- English Classes – Students who want to enroll in an English class will need to complete “The Write Class” assessment. For more information about the Write Class, visit the English Placement Exams web page.
- World Languages – Students who want to enroll in a World Language class may need to take a placement exam offered through the Department of World Languages.
