A new way to earn college credit while attending LAU.
Beginning fall 2019, we are excited to announce a new partnership with Dixie State University (DSU) that will let LAU students access DSU’s online Concurrent Enrollment (CE) courses. By enrolling in these courses, high school students can earn college credits and fulfill LAU’s graduation requirements at the same time!
In addition, LAU students living in Washington County can also attend in-person CE classes on the DSU campus in St. George.
DSU’s Concurrent Enrollment courses are open to LAU students in grades 10-12. To enroll, students must fulfill all DSU prerequisites and CE eligibility requirements as outlined on this page.
Important note: Families are responsible for paying all tuition and fees associated with CE classes (although these fees are minimal). LAU will not pay for texts or reimburse any CE-related costs.
Please be aware that the 4 math offerings (1010, 1030, 1040 and 1050) cannot replace HS Math 3. These courses are only available after HS math 3 is completed with a C or higher.
Here’s a full list of DSU’s online CE courses, (DSU course descriptions on this page) along with estimated tuition and fees and a description of the LAU credit each course will fulfill:
DSU is part of the Utah System of Higher Education (USHE), so their credits are transferable to all colleges in that system. However, some USHE colleges have different rules for which credits apply toward their general education requirements. For planning purposes, you’ll want to check with the specific college you plan on attending to see how these courses fulfill their general education requirements.
If you plan on attending a university outside of the USHE, you’ll want to ensure the credits are transferable before you take a course through DSU.
To enroll in a CE class and receive both high school and college credit, you will need to register through both LAU and DSU:
- To register with LAU, log in to your SIS parent account and use the registration tab under My Students. Select the CE course you want and submit the request.
- To register with DSU, please visit their website and follow the directions as outlined there. You’ll need to complete a one-time application (with a $35 fee) before you can proceed with registration.
Finally, please note that CE classes are college courses and will require roughly 9-10 combined hours of class time and homework per week, so students should plan accordingly.
We’re excited to offer this new option for students this fall!
