Concurrent Enrollment High School Administrator Resources

Thank you for your interest in Anoka-Ramsey’s Concurrent Enrollment program. The high school administrative team is a vital partner for a successful Concurrent Enrollment program!

For schools interested in offering their first Anoka-Ramsey Concurrent Enrollment course(s), please contact the Dean of Academic and Community Outreach to begin the conversation. Administering a Concurrent Enrollment program takes considerable time and communication between the high school and Anoka-Ramsey Concurrent Enrollment program (CEP) staff. High schools are tasked with identifying eligible students, administering placement testing (if necessary), and coordinating applications and registration to meet the Anoka-Ramsey deadlines. Each high school will need a point person who can coordinate all elements of the Concurrent Enrollment program. Please see the Concurrent Enrollment High School Guide for more information.

  • There are a number of deadlines leading up to the start of classes. Please review the general timelines and responsibilities below.
