Dual Enrollment and Concurrent Enrollment Student: For purposes of this administrative procedure, the terms dual enrollment student and concurrent enrollment student are used interchangeably and are defined as a student concurrently receiving both high school and college credit for the same course. RCC uses the term dual enrollment student when referring to students in high school or of high school age earning college credit and concurrent is a student enrolled at two universities. 

Students under 18 years old, or while in high school, have a variety of opportunities to benefit from Rogue Community College’s instructional offerings. Students may participate in the accelerated high school / college programs, such as College Now and Early College. (See AP-4238 - Dual Credit.)

Home schooled or high school students under 18 years old not participating in contracted accelerated high school/college programs may also earn college credit.  For these students not engaged in the contracted partnership programs, students will follow the admission and dual enrollment administrative procedures listed below.

  1. 1. Prospective students who are 16 or 17 years of age and do not have a High School Diploma or equivalent and are not part of an accelerated high school/college program must do the following:
    1. Complete the Admission Application
    2. Complete the placement process through multiple measures standards and place into college level reading and college level writing
    3. Comply with Oregon compulsory school attendance law and submit required documentation
    4. Complete an underage registration form and submit this to Financial Aid.
  2. Prospective students who are under 16 years of age who are not part of an accelerated high school/college partnership are encouraged to complete all possible coursework in a secondary district. College level coursework in an adult learning environment may not be suitable for non-college aged students.

    In addition to the requirements stated above in one (1), underage students and parents/guardians must meet with a college representative to determine that:
    1. Participation in class is not a health or safety risk
    2. Enrollment is not in violation of federal or state statutes or regulations
    3. The student has the ability to benefit from college content and instructional strategies

A recommendation for admissions status must be submitted to the Admissions Officer who will make the final determination. Once approved the student will complete an underage registration form and submit this to Financial Aid.

Pursuant to ORS 341.481, the college reserves the right to approve or deny the request for enrollment by underage students.
