Admission of Concurrent High School Students

Students who are still in high school and at least 14 years of age who meet eligibility requirements for concurrent enrollment can be admitted as an undergraduate Non-Degree Seeking student and are able to register for 100 and 200 level courses. The eligibility requirements are below.

Students who have erroneously stated they are still in high school on the application for admission may provide one of the below for review in order to determine eligibility to pursue a degree or certificate program:

  • An unofficial or official high school transcript/diploma
  • A signed letter from their Education Service Officer indicating that the student’s high school is acceptable for acceptance into their service branch and the usage of tuition assistance benefits
  • An unofficial or official Joint Services Transcript, CCAF transcript or DD Form 214 Certificate of Release/Discharge from Active Duty
  • An unofficial or official college transcript showing completion of 9 or more hours of college credit

Concurrent Eligibility Requirements

You must complete the standard application for admission and meet the admission requirements of an undergraduate Non-Degree Seeking student. You will also need to supply the following documents prior to being eligible to register for courses:

  • If you are under the age of 17, you will need to have an Enrollment Waiver Form signed by your parent or legal guardian.
  • An official high school transcript or official letter from the principal or guidance counselor verifying junior or senior standing and high school GPA of 3.0 or better or its equivalent. A class standing lower than junior or a GPA of 2.0-2.9 also may be accepted in certain circumstances and subject to the APUS Provost’s approval.

If you have any more questions regarding enrolling while still in high school, or need a copy of the Enrollment Waiver Form, please contact us at [email protected].
