Concurrent student enrollment

Concurrent, or dual, enrollment, provides the opportunity for capable and ambitious Colorado high school students to enroll in college level courses, often completing high school graduation requirements simultaneously.

Concurrent enrollment options are available for high school juniors and seniors with permission from their high school. We recommend that students have a minimum 3.0 cumulative high school GPA, meet the prerequisites of the courses they are interested in, and are ready to be successful in college-level courses.

Concurrent students may need to submit ACT or SAT scores, or take the Accuplacer test, for placement purposes into specific classes. Typically, math and English courses require tests for placement consideration. Please consult the course listings and catalog for prerequisite and course-placement information.

Application process for new concurrent enrollment:  

  1. Meet with your high school guidance counselor. You must show that you meet the criteria established by your high school and receive approval prior to applying for admission at Fort Lewis College.
  2. Download and complete the free concurrent enrollment application  
    • All parent/guardian signatures and school official signatures must be complete at the time of -application.
    • Your state-assigned student identification number (SASID#) must be included – your guidance counselor can provide this. (Homeschool and private school students may leave this blank.)
    • Attach official high school transcripts and test scores if available provided by your guidance counselor.
  3. Return the completed application and transcripts to the Admission Office or email Meryl Ramsey, admission counselor, mkramsey@fortlewis.edu.

Continuing concurrent enrollment students must submit a new application for each semester, including parent/guardian and school official signatures, but do not need to provide updated transcripts. Please send the completed application to the Admission Office, or email directly to Meryl Ramsey, admission counselor, mkramsey@fortlewis.edu.
