Concurrent Enrollment

Earn college credits or complete a certificate program, while you are in high school, for free (dependent on the program and books and tools are not included).

Denver Public School District Concurrent Enrollment makes funding available for qualified high school students to attend college classes at Emily Griffith Technical College. Students earn transferable college credits, elective high school credits, and could possibly earn an industry recognized certificate which is extremely valuable for future employment. This is an exciting education opportunity for many students to earn college credits and skills that will make them employable while they are still in high school.
