ASCENT Program FAQ DPS

Students are able to take college level courses to count both for college and high school credit through the DPS Concurrent Enrollment Program.  DPS will reimburse a student for classes taken through Concurrent Enrollment up to the community college rate.  An example of Concurrent Enrollment would be taking a college level math course and having it also count for a year of high school math.
