Concurrent Enrollment Students
START COLLEGE EARLY! Yavapai College offers academic programs for students who want to take classes at a YC campus while still in high school. This program is open to all qualified high school students. Students are required to meet the prerequisites for intended courses. It is the student's responsibility to arrange for payment of tuition and books.
Credits earned through concurrent enrollment will be part of your permanent college transcript and impact your college grade point average (GPA). It is recommended that CE students work closely with their high school to identify college classes that meet high school graduation requirements.

IMPORTANT Information for Parents and Students
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act is a federal regulation that deals specifically with the education records of students who attend any post-secondary institution. Please read the complete FERPA policy
Federal Guidelines Regarding Eligibility for Federal Student Aid
Federal regulations require that students receiving financial aid must maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP). Please read the complete policy.
It's important to remember that students are measured on attempted credits, and every class attempted or completed becomes part of the student's life-long, permanent record even if financial aid was not received for those courses. Students need to understand the implication of failing or withdrawing from a class even if federal aid is not used.
Regardless of where a student attends college, ALL post-secondary institutions are required to measure students’ eligibility as outlined above.
