Concurrent Enrollment

Earn College Credit at CRC Before Graduating High School

Through the Arkansas Concurrent Enrollment Program, high school students can enroll in college-level courses and earn credit toward a high school diploma at the same time they earn college credit. At Crowley’s Ride College, you can start college with completed credits in courses like math, English, or psychology. Taking concurrent enrollment credits also allows you to:

– Graduate college earlier

– Reduce your potential debt load and save money

– Focus on your major and minor courses earlier

– Get a feel for what the college environment will be like

Are you ready to take your academic game to the next level or even earn a degree? Our concurrent enrollment team is ready to help you and your family navigate how to enroll in our concurrent enrollment program.
