A new way to earn college credit while attending LAU.
LAU has a partnership with Dixie State University (DSU) that allows LAU students to 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 have the option to 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.
Where Do I Start?
Review Eligibility Requirements
To enroll, students must fulfill all DSU prerequisites and CE eligibility requirements as outlined on this page.
*Note: To enroll in a CE course and receive both high school and college credit, students must register with both DSU and LAU. 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.
Select Courses in SIS
To let us know your student is interested in concurrent enrollment, log in to your SIS parent account, then use the Registration tab under My Students to select their DSU courses.
*Note: You are only indicating interest in DSU courses in SIS. Additional steps are required to officially register for concurrent enrollment .
Apply & Register for Courses at DSU
After you have selected your student’s courses in SIS, you will receive an email with the next steps for applying to DSU. You can also find those steps here.
*Note: There are a limited number of seats available for Concurrent Enrollment. Register early and add your student’s name to the waitlist if needed.
Things to Know
Utah System of Higher Education
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 your student plans on attending to see how these courses fulfill their general education requirements.
If your student plans on attending a university outside of the USHE, you’ll want to ensure the credits are transferable before taking a course through DSU.
