Statewide Partnership for Concurrent Enrollment

The program was designed to support concurrent enrollment teachers receive 18 graduate level credits in their area of instruction.

What is the Statewide Partnership?

Approximately 76% of the state’s high school concurrent enrollment instructors do not currently meet the Higher Learning Commission's standard for instructors. In order to meet the needs of concurrent enrollment instructors and the students they service, the state legislature has expanded and appropriated funding opportunities for instructors 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, South Central, Southwest West Central, Resource Training & Solutions, Sourcewell and Northeast.

Approved instructors in participating districts are eligible for tuition scholarships of up to $300 per credit at participating higher education institutes. Tuition will be paid upon successful completion of coursework as reported by higher education institutes. instructors 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. Instructors will be responsible for paying these costs along with costs for any materials required for the courses. Courses will be considered successfully completed if graduate credits are obtained.
