Get a Jump on College - While You’re Still in High School! If you're a junior or senior in high school, you can enroll in classes at Rogers State University as a concurrent student.
What is a Concurrent Student?
A concurrent student is a high school student who takes college classes while they’re still in high school.
How will I benefit?
There are many benefits of taking college classes while you’re still in high school. You can earn college credits early, challenge yourself academically, get a taste of the academic and social aspects of college life and receive free tuition (for up to six credit hours per semester).
Am I eligible?
Juniors must have ACT composite score of 21 or above and sub-score of 19 or above in the desired concurrent subject area. Seniors must have ACT composite score of 19 or above and sub-score of 19 or above in the desired concurrent subject area. Home-schooled students 17 years and older must have ACT composite score of 19 or above and sub-score of 19 or above in the desired concurrent subject area. Home-schooled students 16 years old must have ACT composite score of 21 or above and sub-score of 19 or above in the desired concurrent subject area.
How much does it cost?
For Oklahoma residents, RSU offers free tuition for up to six credit hours per semester to high school juniors and seniors who choose to take classes through the Concurrent Enrollment Program. That’s right – you will not be required to pay tuition! You will be required to pay regular class fees.
How do I get started?
To gain admission to the Concurrent Enrollment Program, follow these steps. You need to obtain the permission of your parent or guardian, high school principal, and high school counselor to participate in the program. You are required to obtain the signatures of each on your RSU Concurrent Enrollment Application.
Which classes can I take?
You may enroll in any general education class. RSU offers hundreds of eligible classes each semester, such as algebra, biology, English composition, government, history, humanities, psychology, and more (see the class schedule). Remember, you must obtain ACT sub-scores of 19 or above in desired concurrent subject areas.
How many classes can I take?
You may enroll in up to 19 hours of combined high school and college classes each semester. For purposes of calculating course load, one-half high school unit will be equivalent to three semester credit hours of college work.
When can I take my college classes?
You may take your classes whenever your high school class schedule will allow, during the day or evening. RSU offers classes at convenient times during the day or evening on our campuses in Claremore, Bartlesville and Pryor.
Can I take classes online?
Yes, you may complete your classes entirely via the Internet through the RSU Online Program. Remember, online classes are just as challenging (if not more so) than regular “in-person” classes.
Will my classes transfer to another college or university?
The classes you complete through the RSU Concurrent Enrollment Program will count toward your requirements at Rogers State University or will transfer to any public college or university in Oklahoma (and most private and out-of-state institutions.)
