Save Time and Money. Start During High School.

Many of the Technical Education programs, like Automotive Technology, Digital Design, Web Business, and Engineering Drafting and Design, are available to start in high school through Concurrent Enrollment.

By taking Concurrent Enrollment classes in high school, you shorten the time you’ll need to earn a college degree. Plus, Concurrent Enrollment courses cost a fraction of what you cost to take them after high school.
