Concurrent Enrollment Students
- What is Concurrent Enrollment and how does it work?
Concurrent Enrollment allows you to earn college credit while you complete required high school credit. One CE class can give you credit toward high school graduation as well as university general education.
- Are Concurrent Enrollment classes different from standard college classes?
Weber State University ensures that all students receive the same curriculum and experience for a class whether it is taught by an instructor at your high school or on Weber’s campus. Concurrent Enrollment students will leave their classes with the same level of knowledge as any other Weber State student. Credits are graded and earned the same way as regular courses would be after high school.
- Is it possible to take classes on campus?
Yes! If you want to take classes on our campus that are taught by Weber State professors then you’ll want to look into Early College. You can take both Early College and Concurrent Enrollment classes at the same time.
- What are the advantages of Concurrent Enrollment?
Concurrent Enrollment courses count as true Weber State credit and are fully transferable to any other university. The cost for each class is five dollars per credit hour, for example, one 3 credit course will cost you 15 dollars - a massive savings! Getting a jump start on your college career and just trying out different subjects is a great way to make the best of your high school academics. Whether you plan to earn your Associate’s Degree, Certificate of Completion, or simply get ahead, please contact our advising team at firstname.lastname@example.org!
- What is the eWeber Portal?
Through the eWeber Portal you will be able to access anything from your schedule to transcripts to your official Weber State student email. When in doubt, check your eWeber portal!
- What does it mean to have a Weber State student email?
All correspondence to students from the university will be sent to their Weber State email. It is vital to your success as a student to check and use your WSU email regularly.
- How do you access your WSU student email?
Upon logging into your eWeber portal, your Wildcat Mail can be accessed in the “Featured” category of your eWeber portal. Please note that once you have been admitted to the university any and all correspondence from Weber State will go to your Wildcat mail.
- What is a W#?
All Weber State students have a unique student identification number that is most often called their “W#”. A student’s W# is commonly used when dealing with anything related to the student record.
- Where can you find your W#?
The quickest way to find your W# will be to log in to your eWeber portal and click on your profile picture in the top right corner of the page. Once you’ve clicked on your profile picture select “Show W#” and it will appear below your profile picture.
- Where can you find your username and password?
If you have completed your admissions application, but do not know your username and password there is no need to worry as it is only a few steps away. Your username and password can easily be found here. Once you are on the “Get Your Wildcat Username” page, and after providing your birthdate and Social Security Number, our system will provide you with your matching username. After receiving your username, it will then allow you to set a new password. Then, you’re good to log in!
- How does registering for concurrent enrollment classes work?
As a Concurrent Enrollment student you’ll first sign up for your classes through your high school along with your regular high school classes. You’ll then sign up for each of your CE classes by clicking on the “register for classes” button found at our registration page. Log in with your eWeber username and password to then open up a selection of available CE classes from your high school. Once you’ve selected all of your classes and added them to your cart, you will then need to pay for them in order to register. CE classes cost $5 per credit hour. If you experience any issues with this process please contact us at 801-395-3480 or email us at email@example.com.
- How many Concurrent Enrollment classes should you take?
There is no one size fits all answer to this question. Our recommendation is to attend a CE Information session that is hosted here at Weber State. You can also email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or to set up an appointment with an advisor. However, you can only take a maximum of 30 credits per academic year!
- Are Concurrent Enrollment advisors easy to meet with?
Yes! Chances are that you can meet with them right at your high school. We currently have advisors in every school that offers Concurrent Enrollment through Weber State in the Davis, Weber, and Ogden districts. Our advisors devote an entire day each week to meet with students from each school. To set up an appointment, or to find out which dates they will be at your school, email us at email@example.com. If you do not fall under any of the districts listed above it is our recommendation to still contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can do our utmost to make sure that you succeed.
- What are the benefits and consequences of CE grades?
Grades earned in your Concurrent Enrollment classes affect your high school GPA and your Weber State University GPA. This means that final grades received for CE classes impact your future for years to come. When signing up for CE classes, be incredibly careful that the workload you take on is an amount that you feel comfortable with. If you find yourself struggling with a class for any reason, be it academic or personal, please note that you only have so long to drop or withdraw from a class before it is permanently reflected on your university record. You can find all deadlines on the Concurrent Enrollment home page.
- What does it mean to drop a class?
When you drop a class it no longer shows on your academic record. It’s as if it never happened. If you want to drop a class, the deadline to do so is incredibly short. So if you find yourself struggling in a class early on then you need to be resolute as to whether or not you will stay enrolled in the class. Remember, final CE grades will follow you to any college or university that you attend in the future. Dropping a class can be done by speaking to your high school’s CTE coordinator. You can find all deadlines on the registration page.
- What does it mean to withdraw from a class?
When you withdraw from a class it still shows on your academic record. It does not affect your GPA. However, it does show on your academic transcript as a “W'' and can affect any considerations that take into account your overall completion rate. If you want to withdraw from a class, the deadline to do so after the drop deadline is much shorter than the length of the class itself. So if you find yourself struggling in a class, then you still have time to make this critical decision. Remember, final CE grades will follow you to any college or university that you attend in the future. Withdrawing from a class can be done by speaking to your high school’s CTE coordinator. You can find all deadlines on the registration page.
