Concurrent Enrollment Courses

The Concurrent Enrollment Program is a partnership between Murray High School and Salt Lake Community College (SLCC) that allows high school students to earn high school and college credit for courses taught most often by Murray High School Instructors. Murray High School instructors must meet the same rigorous standards as any other SLCC instructor in order to teach concurrent enrollment courses.

Salt Lake Community College believes that in order for students to be successful in college courses, thye must be able to read and comprehend textbooks and materials printed on an appropriate reading level and to be able to solve appropriate level mathematics problems. In the summer of 2009, SLCC initiated the prerequisite testing policy for all students registering for college courses. This policy requires all college and high school students to demonstrate their abilities by participating in a college placement test. Appropriate test scores from either the ACT, SAT, or Accuplacer Computerized Placement Test(CPT) are needed to be placed in a Concurrent Enrollment course.

The MHS Counseling Department is strongly encouraging students who are planning to register for 2011-12 concurrent enrollment courses in Biology, Bio-Technology, Communications, English, Foreign Language, Humanities, Mathematics or Physics to participate in either the February or April ACT testing being administered at MHS.

Also, if this is your first concurrent enrollment class you need to be ADMITTED to SLCC. This admission process is done online by going to the SLCC Concurrent Enrolment website and by completing the following:
