Concurrent Enrollment


Concurrent enrollment, sometimes called dual enrollment, refers to situations where students are enrolled at more than one institution at the same time.  Concurrent enrollment is supported by federal and state regulations as a means for students to more expeditiously complete degree requirements, thus minimizing student debt and the need for extensive financial aid.

Students who are concurrently enrolled at two or more institutions are subject to the academic and student life policies of each institution, as well as to the financial requirements of each.  In some cases, institutions enter into agreements to jointly provide educational opportunities that enhance the educational experiences of the student, thus augmenting what each institution would normally provide on an individual basis.  One of the benefits of the Claremont University Consortium (CUC) is the opportunity for concurrent enrollment across the member colleges.

Joint, dual, and accelerated programs (especially those between undergraduate colleges and high schools) are based upon concurrent enrollment agreements.  Those agreements determine how enrollment is recorded and how tuition is charged to the student.


CGU Rules for Concurrent Enrollment

Established Programs.  Enrollment and tuition processes are governed by the agreements of the joint doctoral, dual, or other accelerated CGU program.  These programs exist with CUC colleges as well as with other institutions of higher education.

Claremont University Consortium.  Agreements among the CUC colleges honor cross-registration within certain parameters.  Cross-registration is subject to instructor approval, space availability, approved semesters (Fall and Spring), course-based restrictions, and other policies of the institution offering the particular course of interest.

CGU Students.  For CGU students who are not enrolled in an established joint, dual, or accelerated program, enrollment in CGU courses is subject to the following.

  • CGU student status takes priority in all academic and campus activity.
  • Enrollment in CGU courses is processed as a CGU student.
  • Tuition for CGU courses is charged as CGU tuition and payable to CGU.

These rules affect CGU students who may be enrolled in another CUC college at the same time, but not in an established joint, dual, or accelerated program.  Students who meet these qualifications should enroll in their courses as a CGU student and request transfer credit for their second institution.
