NSU offers free concurrent enrollment to high school juniors
TAHLEQUAH – Northeastern State University is partnering with the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education to offer tuition waivers to high school juniors for concurrent enrollment in fall 2019 and spring 2020 semesters.
As a pilot program, the Concurrent Enrollment Waiver Reimbursement Program is being expanded from high school seniors to include qualified high school juniors for up to nine hours for the academic year, subject to available funds.
This free tuition program will allow more high school students the ability to enroll in college, have a head start on their education and develop the confidence to earn a college degree, states a NSU press release.
Provost and Academic Affairs Vice President Dr. Deborah Landry said the program is a great opportunity for students. “Concurrent enrollment provides an opportunity for high school students to explore college classes and earn college credit from NSU, helping students get a head start on their college coursework.”
While tuition is free, students will be responsible for course fees and course textbooks.
To take concurrent classes at NSU, students must have a 3.0 GPA, be in the top 50 percent of their class and have a minimum ACT 20 (composite) score or SAT 1020 (Evidence Based Reading, Writing and Math) score.

Cherokee Nation citizens who are high school students and who are concurrently enrolled and receiving college credit may apply for the concurrent scholarship offered by the CN College Resource Center.
Concurrent scholarships are offered to high school juniors and seniors who are taking required general education courses, at a college or university, while still in high school. CN citizens must also have permanent residence within the CN or contiguous areas.
Applications for the CN concurrent scholarship for the spring 2020 semester will open Oct 1 and must be submitted by 11:59 p.m. CDT on Dec. 29, according to cherokee.org
