Concurrent Enrollment



Northeastern's concurrent enrollment program gives high school students a head start earning college credit. Made possible by the Colorado State Legislature in 2009, concurrent enrollment allows students to take college-level courses for both high school and college credit.


The state of Colorado pays a portion of tuition for Colorado residents earning an undergraduate degree at Colorado public institutions. In order to receive this benefit, you must authorize it at each school you attend. 

How COF Works:

  • You only have to apply for COF once. Once you authorize for one term at Northeastern, that choice typically rolls over every term automatically, but you should always verify each semester that you enroll.
  • There are no income qualifications for undergraduate students attending a public institution.
  • COF is not considered financial aid.
  • You must be eligible for in-state tuition (or attending under an eligible tuition program that charges a special-category rate (concurrent enrollment, ASSET, or Military) and be currently enrolled in courses.
  • You can receive the stipend every term that you take eligible undergraduate courses, and have not met your 145 credit hour life time limit.
  • Apply at the COF website.
