Partnership encourages concurrent enrollment

Colorado Mountain College and eight area high schools have launched an expanded partnership to encourage as many high school students as possible to take advantage of concurrent enrollment classes.

The classes, also known as dual credit, include options in career and technical education as well as traditional academic subjects. The courses allow students from Basalt to DeBeque to earn high school and college credit at the same time, so they can get a jump on higher education or professional training.

A new website – – provides high school students with greater access to class information based on interests and high school location. Students can go online to learn about available programs of study. They can then confer with their high school counselor to finish their registration and confirm a plan for continued education.

Concurrent enrollment courses are available in business, computer-aided drawing, computers, culinary arts, energy, English, fire science, foreign language, graphic design, health occupations, history, literature, math, political science, process technology, psychology, science and welding.
