High school Dual Credit/Concurrent Students
Dual Credit Registration
Applying as a high school student
Dual Credit and Concurrent Enrollment is available to current high school students. If you plan to attend NMJC after graduating high school, this is not the option for you.
Provides high school juniors and seniors who attend a public high school with whom NMJC has a Dual Credit agreement, the opportunity to take college courses. They will simultaneously earn both college credit and high school credit. Students need to speak with their high school counselor for Dual Credit information.
Provides high school juniors and seniors who attend a private, public high school or are currently home-schooled students and at least 16 years of age, the opportunity to take college courses. Students seeking concurrent enrollment must speak with the Registrar's Office.
The student and parent must complete a Concurrent Consent Form. Be advised that college classes are designed for adults and may not be appropriate for some high school-aged students.

Meet with a NMJC advisor to review and discuss appropriate class options and degree

Take the Next Generation Accuplacer placement test.
After you have visited with an advisor, determine what classes you wish to take, you and your parent/guardian must sign the Concurrent Consent form.
Return the signed form to the Registrar’s Office for NMJC signatures and review. A current high school transcript must be turned in to the Registrar's Office with the Concurrent Form.
Concurrent students are establishing a permanent college record and are responsible for knowing college deadlines and procedures.
Concurrent students are responsible for their own books. You will need to visit NMJC's bookstore in the Ben Alexander Student Center, or use our online bookstore to purchase your textbooks.
