Concurrent Enrollment Preview Night Set for Feb. 12February 3, 2009 OGDEN, Utah – Parents and students interested in Weber State University concurrent enrollment classes are invited to Preview Night, scheduled for 5-7 p.m. on Feb. 12 in the Shepherd Union Building.
Concurrent enrollment is a popular program that allows high school juniors and seniors to take college level courses for college credit at their high schools.
A Preview Night welcome will be offered at 5 p.m. followed by general information about concurrent enrollment. Two breakout sessions will be offered as well, one from 5:50 to 6:20 p.m. and one from 6:30 to 7 p.m.
Breakout sessions will highlight areas of emphasis such as health professions, education, business and general studies associate’s degrees. Sessions are aimed at high school sophomores and juniors and their parents in Box Elder, Davis, Morgan, Ogden and Weber school districts.
A total of 4,100 students currently participate in WSU concurrent enrollment courses. WSU concurrent enrollment program administrator Beth Rhoades said some participants get a bit overzealous, packing in the free college credits without any real plan. Preview Night is meant to help with that.
“We are trying to help them strategically plan those credits,” Rhoades said.
Early college and AP courses also will be discussed at Preview Night.
Organizers can accommodate up to 1,000 people at the event. Pre-registration is requested and recommended. Admission and parking is free. To register, log on to weber.edu/concurrent.
