Concurrent enrollment allows high school students the opportunity to enroll in college level courses while continuing their high school courses and activities. Many options are open to high school students.
- CONCURRENT ENROLLMENT - PCCUA's concurrent enrollment program is accredited by the National Alliance for Concurrent Enrollment Partnerships (NACEP) and is available for high school students eligible to enroll in college courses. These classes are typically taught on the high school campus, by a high school instructor, for college credit.
- PCCUA CAREER & TECHNICAL CENTER - Offers programs to local high school students under the auspices of the Arkansas Department of Workforce Education. Often referred to as the Secondary Center, courses offered through this program are taught on all three PCCUA Campuses. Programs on each campus are listed: DeWitt Campus--Advanced Manufacturing, Agriculture, Criminal Justice, Medical Professions Education, and Welding. Helena-West Helena Campus--Advanced Manufacturing, Computer Engineering, Criminal Justice and Medical Professions Education. Stuttgart Campus--Criminal Justice and Medical Professions Education.
- DUAL ENROLLMENT - High school students enroll in college classes at PCCUA. They are registered in classes with other college students.
- COMBINATIONS - Students may enroll in a combination of two or three programs as concurrent, Secondary Center, and dual enrolled status. All high school enrollment classes are college level courses available to high school students. Students may receive high school and college credit simultaneously.
- GEAR UP - Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs is a grant funded by the United States Department of Education. The program is designed to increase the number of low-income students who are prepared to enter and succeed in postsecondary education. GEAR UP offers a variety of services and early intervention programs to help make college possible for everyone.
