FAFSA Fundamentals and Parent Information Night– Presented on September 14, 2017. This OCAP presentation provides step by step information on how to apply for financial aid and scholarships. The Counseling Office also presented information on the college application process.
Tuition & Fees
Eligible Oklahoma high school seniors will receive a tuition waiver for up to 6 credit hours (non-residents and Oklahoma high school juniors are not eligible for this waiver). This waiver is provided by the state for up to six credit hours per semester or summer session.
A high school senior is defined as a student who has completed their junior year but has not yet graduated from high school. There are no family income levels to qualify for this waiver. The waiver does not cover fees or the cost of books.
Concurrent Enrollment students are not eligible for financial aid.
• Students considering concurrent enrollment MUST fill out a minimum 6-hour schedule at North. Do NOT reflect concurrent enrollment on your pre-enrollment form.
• ENGLISH – Students MUST complete 8 semesters of English credit to meet high school graduation requirements. Credit earned by taking the AP Language exam does NOT count towards the 8-semester requirement.
EVERY SENIOR MUST TAKE EITHER TWO SEMESTERS OF ENGLISH IV AT EDMOND NORTH OR TWO SEMESTERS OF CONCURRENT ENGLISH.
• GOVERNMENT – It is STRONGLY RECOMMENDED that U.S. Government is NOT taken concurrently due to recent changes in EPS graduation requirements for Government and Personal Financial Literacy.
• A student may NOT enroll in a concurrent course less than 2 credit hours
• Students must enroll in concurrent class times that do NOT conflict with their schedule at North. To best accommodate this, you MUST enroll in concurrent classes at the beginning or end of the school day. You are not allowed to take concurrent classes in the middle of the school day! Travel time MUST BE considered.
• A student taking one concurrent course will be scheduled in 4 consecutive hours at North. A student taking two concurrent courses will be scheduled in 3 consecutive hours at North.
• Senior students must have taken the ACT and scored a 20 or higher and have a 3.0 gpa
• Students will be required to report grades for concurrent courses weekly to the North Counseling Office.
• Students must apply online at www.uco.edu/concurrent. After the application is complete, print off the Parent/Guardian and Counselor Approval Form and bring it to the counseling office. Your counselor will sign it and you will return it to UCO along with an official transcript and test scores.
Deciding what courses to take concurrently may require some research. You may want to consider the following:
1. Will the college of your choice accept concurrent credits?
2. Will each concurrent course transfer to your college? (For Example: You take a 3-hour Calculus I course and your college requires a 4-hour Calculus I course.)
3. Is the concurrent course required for your degree program?
