A ninth through twelfth grade student who successfully completes a college course(s) from an institution
approved by the Arkansas Department of Education shall be given credit toward high school grades and
graduation at the rate of one high school credit for each three (3) semester hours of college credit. Unless
approved by the school’s principal, prior to enrolling for the course, the concurrent credit shall be applied
toward the student’s graduation requirements as an elective. Furthermore, each (3) semester hour course
completed, if approved, may only count for one half (1/2) of high school non-elective credit.
A student who takes a three-semester hour remedial/developmental education course, as
permitted by the ADE Rules Governing Concurrent College and High School Credit, shall be
the equivalent of one-half unit of credit for a high school career focus elective. The
remedial/developmental education course cannot be used to meet the core subject area/unit
requirements in English and mathematics.
Participation in the concurrent high school and college credit program must be documented by
a written agreement between:
The District's student, and his or her parent(s) or guardian(s) if the public school
student is under the age of eighteen (18);
The District; and
The publicly supported community college, technical college, four-year college or
university, or private institution the student attends to take the concurrent credit
Students are responsible for having the transcript for the concurrent credit course(s) they’ve
taken sent to their school in order to receive credit for the course(s). Credit for concurrent
credit courses will not be given until a transcript is received. Transcripts for students who take
concurrent credit courses as partial fulfillment of the required full day of class for students in
grades 9-12 (see Policy 4.44) are to be received by the school by the end of the semester in
which the course is taken. Students may not receive credit for the course(s) they took or the
credit may be delayed if the transcripts are not received in time, or at all. This may jeopardize
students’ eligibility for extracurricular activities, graduation, or promotion.
Students will retain credit earned through the concurrent credit program which was applied toward a
course required for high school graduation from a previously attended, accredited, public school.
Any and all costs of higher education courses taken for concurrent credit are the student’s responsibility.
