High School Student
High School students can take classes at your high school, online, or on Allen's campus, even during the Summer. Apply the credits you earn toward both high school and college and transfer them to other colleges. It’s also possible to earn your high school degree and a certificate or Associates degree from Allen at the same time.
You must be a current high school freshman with a gifted I.E.P., sophomore, junior, or senior, who have not yet graduated, or completing your G.E.D.
Dual credit or concurrent classes are affordable with scholarships available. We also provide help with advising, degree and transfer planning and access to tutoring services.
Concurrent: a college course that is taught at a high school, by a college approved high school teacher during the normal school day. These courses typically are accepted by the high school as satisfying specific high school requirements.
Dual Credit: a college course that is taken by a high school student during the high school day or after (which includes online), but is taught by an approved college instructor. These courses typically are accepted by the high school as satisfying specific high school requirements, but may be in addition to high school requirements for students working to get ahead in their college career.
Please remember these are college-level courses, so please make sure you are motivated and prepared to take courses at this level as you will be treated like all other college students while taking the course.
