The Concurrent Credit (CC) Program at Enlightium Academy is a partnership between Northwest Nazarene University (NNU) and Enlightium, which allows students the opportunity to earn college credit while still enrolled in high school.
Did you know that Enlightium allows students to attend post-secondary classes in a college or university of their choice? To learn more, visit our Dual Enrollment page.
The program is accredited by National Alliance Of Concurrent Enrollment Partnerships (NACEP) and recognized by most universities.
Qualified Enlightium students can take concurrent credit courses. Concurrent credits are not available to part-time students.
Earn three college credits with each concurrent credit course taken through Enlightium Academy. NNU credits are transferable to most colleges and universities across the country.
Credit hours taken at one college or university can typically transfer to another and be applied toward degree requirements; check with the receiving school’s admissions department for verification. Once a student successfully completes a concurrent credit course, they have earned course credit from NNU that may be used at NNU or transferred to another institution upon high school graduation.
Students enrolling in concurrent credit courses obtain both high school and college credit for the courses.
To drop a concurrent course, students must complete an NNU drop form, available from the Enlightium Academy concurrent course instructor. It is the student’s responsibility to complete the form provided by NNU, obtain the required signatures, and submit the form to NNU. The student should notify their high school counselor of the dropped course.
Once a form is processed, a “W” (withdrawal) will be posted to the student’s NNU and Enlightium transcripts. A “W” does not affect a student’s GPA. There is no refund for dropped courses if the course is dropped after November 15. Drop forms must be filed on or before the last day of the course.
NNU is accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities; therefore, most colleges and universities accept NNU credits. However, it is the student’s responsibility to consult with any other intended colleges regarding the transferability of any university credits earned. The NNU Concurrent Credit Program is accredited by the National Alliance of Concurrent Enrollment Partnerships (NACEP). Credit recognition is the exclusive prerogative of the granting institution. Colleges usually accept courses in which students earn a “C” or above, yet many factors affect the decision to accept transfer credit.
It can be helpful for students to present course syllabi, course descriptions, and coursework completed when meeting with the college official. If a college is reluctant to grant credit, the NNU Concurrent Credit Office may be able to help.
Students must register for a Concurrent Credit course by October 15 of each school year.
