UWL Faculty Information

What is Concurrent Enrollment?

Concurrent Enrollment allows high school juniors and seniors to complete UWL courses within their home schools, earning both UWL and high school credit. Courses are taught by high school teachers approved by UWL departments to teach the course in alignment with UWL curriculum and learning outcomes. That means faculty help provide high-quality learning opportunities to regional high schools, and gain the opportunity to partner with exceptional high school teachers.

Why UWL Offers Concurrent Enrollment

Mission-driven expanding section

“UW System courses offered for credit at WI high schools provide an opportunity for … students to engage in a special college-level learning experience. High school and college faculty forge strong working relationships … (which) benefit both faculties, their institutions and their students. … Students may benefit from accelerating completion of a college degree, reducing the cost of their college education, and entering the work force sooner.” UWS Policy 185

Equity and Inclusion expanding section

Tuition for UWL Concurrent Enrollment courses is $110/credit vs. the regular in-state tuition of approximately $300/credit and students do not incur travel costs for instruction (courses are taught at their high school). Some school districts cover the cost of Concurrent Enrollment tuition or pay a portion of the tuition.

Recruitment expanding section
15% of UWL Concurrent Enrollment students enroll at UWL after high school.

Concurrent Enrollment creates a pathway for the UW System as many students go on to enroll at other UW System campuses.

Faculty Development expanding section

Concurrent Enrollment provides a channel of connection for UWL faculty and high school teachers. Ideas and techniques are shared and the collaboration benefits both high school students and UWL students.
