Frequently Asked Questions

Are concurrent classes free?
No. Concurrent students are awarded a tuition waiver. High School Juniors receive a waiver for 6 hours and High School Seniors receive a waiver for 18 hours per year. Students are required to pay for the fees incurred for each class. You may also be required to purchase a textbook (paper or electronic) and/or a digital access code for each course.

Can concurrent students take Remedial or zero-level Courses?
No. If a student’s subject ACT score or placement test score is below the required cut score to take a college level course, they are not permitted to take the remedial course until they have graduated high school. For example, if a student would like to take Freshman Composition I, they must have a score of 19 or higher on the English subject ACT or the required Writing score on the Accuplacer in order to take an English course.

Are Concurrent courses transferable?
Yes. During your enrollment appointment, please inform the academic advisor of your intended major and the institution you wish to attend after high school. You and the advisor can work together to choose which courses work best for your major.

How many credit hours can I take concurrently?
Students generally take between 3 and 9 credit hours a semester. The number of hours a concurrent student can take is determined by the high school counselor or principal. The Oklahoma State Regents of Higher Education limits the number of combined credit hours a concurrent student can take between their high school and college courses.

I received a high school schedule that includes a college class. Am I enrolled in that class?
No. You are not enrolled in concurrent courses until you communicate your wish to enroll with an EOSC Academic Advisor.

How can I get a copy of my college transcript?
Current students can view/print unofficial college transcripts through their WebAdvisor account. Students can request official transcripts through the Registrar's Office. Please note: your balance must be paid in full in order to request an official transcript.

What are the expectations of a concurrent high school student?
  • In college, you are treated as an independent adult. Your grades are the result of your efforts. 
  • College courses are often more difficult than those in high school. 
  • Print out the syllabus and course schedule – note the assignment due dates. 
  • Log into Blackboard and your college email account a few times every week. 
  • Attend every class without exception and be in your seat before the class begins. 
  • Pay attention during class time! Turn off your phone and put it away. Take notes. 
  • Complete assignments and submit them ahead of the due date. 
  • Contact the instructor promptly if you don’t understand something or if you have a problem such as an absence. 
  • Pay attention to your 7-week grade in Self Service. This tells you if what you’re doing is good enough for the grade you want. 
  • Pay attention to your 11-week grade in Self Service. This helps you decide whether or not to withdraw from a class if your grade is too low and cannot be salvaged.
