Concurrent Enrollment – Taught at High Schools
Dual enrollment at high schools, often called concurrent enrollment, is exempt from the 2017 Wisconsin legislation Early College Credit Program (ECCP); therefore, these arrangements require an MOU (Memo of Understanding) and direct arrangements between UWM and school districts or high schools.
The Office of Dual Enrollment connects qualified and interested high school faculty with the relevant academic department on campus. The department reviews the high school teacher’s transcripts and CV/resume to determine if they are qualified to teach a UWM course. After approval, the department assigns a UWM faculty member or academic staff instructor to serve as the faculty liaison; they support the high school instructor and ensure that the off-campus course is equivalent with the on-campus course. The faculty liaison and academic department set the prerequisites for students who can enroll, the course policies, learning outcomes, curriculum, pedagogy, and assessment methods.
The Office of Dual Enrollment works with the school district to develop the MOU, supports both the high school instructor and the faculty liaison, provides on-site orientation for students, and manages all of the registration and administrative work.
