Credit for Concurrent Enrollment Policy

Academic credit will be transcripted as elective credit if there is no correlation between the concurrent enrollment higher education course and a course provided by the school district. (Page 891 Oklahoma School Law & page 315 Accreditation standards) If concurrent enrollment is correlated with academic course needed to meet graduation requirement, students are required to complete two concurrent classes in subject area to satisfy Oklahoma Union public school graduation requirements.
