Concurrent Enrollment Program
Welcome to M State! You are on the right path to making good decisions that will have a positive impact on your future. Taking concurrent courses will give you a jump start on your college education, save you money and give you college experience in a high school setting. We hope you will enjoy all the benefits of being an M State concurrent student and that you will consider continuing your education at M State after you graduate high school.
Are you ready to be a college student?
M State concurrent students are held to the same standards and expectations as students in classes taught on the college campus. Success in college begins with understanding college expectations and being accountable. Students are encouraged to take M State's College Readiness Self Assessment and read the Student Agreement of Understanding or the CEP Brochure for Student Success.

How do you know if your M State concurrent courses will transfer after you graduate high school? The majority of M State concurrent credits transfer seamlessly to other colleges and universities, however it is up to the receiving institution to decide which credits transfer and whether those credits meet their degree requirements.
Tools and information for transfer planning:
- Minnesota State system - M State is a member of the Minnesota State system. A course that meets a Minnesota Transfer Curriculum (MnTC) goal area at M State will meet the same goal area at other Minnesota State institutions. Visit the Minnesota State Campuses website to see a list of all 30 colleges, seven universities and 54 campuses that are part of this system.
- Syllabi - Students are strongly encouraged to keep the syllabi from their concurrent courses as a receiving institution may request it if a transfer decision is appealed.
- Transferology - This is a free online tool designed to help students explore their college transfer options nationwide.
- MnTransfer - This is a resource for students, transfer specialists and educators.
- Appeal - All colleges and universities have an appeal process, so if a course doesn't transfer or transfers as an elective, take the next step and submit an appeal. The M State Concurrent Enrollment Program will also help advocate for our students. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
- Meet with your high school career counselor.
- Meet with M State advisors and/or attend M State transfer workshops.
