For students interested in taking the concurrent enrollment clas
ses available in trimester 2 (Math 1050) and trimester 3 (Math 1060, Math 1040, and History 1700) there are some steps you need to complete to get enrolled for college credit through SLCC.
As you are working on building schedules with your success coaches (the final schedule requests were due on October 28th), this is important information to consider.
Math 1050, 1060, 1040 is open 11th and 12th graders (you need to have taken SM3 first and have an ACT score of 23 with an ACT reading score of 18 or an equivalent Accuplacer score to qualify). History 1700 is open to only 12th graders (with an ACT score of 18 or an equivalent Accuplacer score to qualify).
All deadlines have passed to submit your SLCC application. Remember that you need to submit ACT scores directly from the ACT. We cannot send scores from AISU, the scores must go to SLCC directly from the ACT (these can be requested online). If you have not taken the ACT, you can arrange to take the Accuplacer through SLCC.
You will not need to register for classes taught on AISU’s campus through SLCC. However, if a you are wanting to take a SLCC class on SLCC’s campus, you need to apply by all of SLCC’s application deadlines and register for those classes through SLCC, not AISU.
Students will not be permitted to make any concurrent enrollment
schedule changes after AISU’s class change deadlines. For example, trimester 2 begins on Monday, December 7th. Class changes are allowed during the first week of the trimester so the schedule change deadline is on Friday, December 11th. We will then submit our final concurrent enrollment class rosters to SLCC and they will manually register our students since our trimester schedule is a unique scheduling situation. No concurrent enrollment changes can be made after Friday, December 11th. Any changes will result in permanent academic consequences on your college transcript.
If students do not submit an application to SLCC and if students do not send in their ACT scores (or take the Accuplacer), they will not receive any college credit for the course.
College credit can be earned during high school. One option for students to earn college credit while they are in high school is to participate in the concurrent enrollment program offered through Salt Lake Community College. We are offering a few concurrent enrollment classes on our AISU campus, other classes can be taken on SLCC’s campus. Please visit their website for more information about what qualifications are required to participate and for application deadlines: http://www.slcc.
Another option is for students to enroll in the University of Utah’s High School Program. The high school university program is for high school sophomores through seniors who want to take college level course work not available at their high school, or for students who want to get a head start on a college career. Please visit their website for specifics on application deadlines and requirements: http://
If you haven’t learned about programs offered by the Davis Applied Technology College for high school students, check them out! Attending the DATC while in high school means free tuition. The advantage to attending a technical college before heading to a four-year university is that students who complete a program at the DATC will earn a certificate in fields that allow them to have a great paying job to help pay for college, or their training allows them to head straight into the workforce if they are not ready to head to a four-year college/university. Some programs have 100% job placement! If your student is interested in the medical field, encourage them to get their CNA certificate; if your student is interested in owning their own automotive repair shop, encourage them to attend the automotive technology program; if your student is interested in working in a restaurant, encourage them to attend the culinary arts program; if your student wants to become a dental hygienist or a dentist, encourage them to earn a dental assisting certificate.
