About Concurrent Enrollment
The Concurrent Enrollment Program allows students to enroll in college courses while simultaneously attending their high school/middle school. Credits earned through this program may be used to fulfill high school and college certificate, transfer, or graduation requirements.
Any student that is currently enrolled in high school or jr. high may participate in concurrent enrollment.

FEDERAL AND STATE REGULATIONS
The law limits the number of K-12 students enrolled in each section of a physical activity class. Approval for concurrent enrollment in a physical education class does not guarantee you will be selected to enroll in that class.
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) protects privacy of a student’s educational records by placing limits on whom may have access to the records, what information may be shared or disclosed, and how that information may be used. Butte College complies with FERPA and has strict policies and procedures in place governing student records. Because Concurrent Enrollment students are considered college students (even if underage), Butte College does not permit access to their educational records or disclose information to anyone (including parents).
In order to utilize the Butte College Student Health Clinic a Authorization to Treat a Minor Form must be on file with the clinic. Forms can be found here. In addition, a small service fee will be charged.
