*A waiver must be signed allowing the high school advisor to check the student's college course GPA.
*If a student falls below a 2.0 GPA in their concurrent enrollment course, they will not be allowed to take any further concurrent enrollment courses. If this occurs as a junior, then they would not be allowed to take any concurrent enrollment courses their senior year. (This ruling comes from the State Board of Oklahoma and the colleges.)
CCS provides a policy that allows students to choose concurrent enrollment during the last two years of high school, however:
1. CCS does not recommend, endorse, or encourage parents and students to pursue concurrent enrollment.
2. CCS believes that students should exhaust the full benefits of the high school program, academically and socially, before embarking upon the college campus.
3. CCS believes that students benefit by remaining as full-time high school students until graduation.
4. CCS believes the last two years of high school are critical to solidify faith, nurture emotional balance, and promote personal maturity.
