Concurrent Enrollment

SUNY Nassau Community College provides high school students with the opportunity to get ahead on their college career and take a college-level course during the normal school day hours on the SUNY Nassau campus. These classes are taught by SUNY Nassau’s renowned faculty and give high school students the opportunity to experience a challenging, college-level course before high school graduation.

Qualified students earn high school and college credit concurrently, while satisfying their high school graduation requirements and earning college credit.  Credits can be applied to Nassau Community College or transferred to most two- and four-year colleges and universities.

High school students participating in the program are considered registered SUNY Nassau students and are required to meet the College’s student standards. While participating the Concurrent Enrollment program students will have access to the excellent resources the College offers such as computer labs, library, student services center, book store, etc. and can participate in all NCC extra-curricular activities except NJCAA athletic teams.

Once students have completed a concurrent enrollment course they can request an official transcript from the Registrar’s Office and have it sent to their intended college for a review of transfer credit.  Transcripts can be requested via the Registrar’s Office.
