Statewide Partnership for Concurrent Enrollment

What is the Statewide Partnership?

Approximately​ ​76%​ ​of​ ​the​ ​state’s​ ​high​ ​school​ ​concurrent​ ​enrollment​ ​teachers​ ​do​ ​not​ ​currently meet​ ​the​ ​Higher​ ​Learning​ ​Commission's​ ​standard​ ​for​ ​instructors.​ ​In​ ​order​ ​to​ ​meet​ ​the​ ​needs​ ​of​ ​concurrent​ ​enrollment​ ​teachers,​ ​the​ ​state​ ​legislature​ ​has ​expanded​ ​and​ ​appropriated​ funding opportunities ​for​ ​teachers​ ​throughout​ ​all ​regions​ ​of the​ ​state.​ ​​Metro​ ​ECSU,​ ​serving​ ​as​ ​the​ ​fiscal​ ​host​ ​for​ ​these​ ​monies,​ ​represents​ ​the​ ​following service​ ​cooperative​ ​regions​ ​of​ ​the​ ​state:​ ​​ ​Southeast,​ ​Southcentral,​ ​Southwest​ ​West​ ​Central, Resource​ ​Training​ ​&​ ​Solutions,​ ​NJPA​ ​and​ ​Northeast.​ ​​

Approved teachers in participating districts are eligible for tuition scholarships in participating higher education institutes. Tuition will be paid in full once higher education institutes report successful completion of coursework. Teachers that drop courses after the deadline or who do not successfully complete courses will be responsible for tuition costs. In some cases, application or other fees may be charged by the higher education institute. Teachers will be responsible for paying these costs.
