FAQs

What does the application and registration process look like?

Students will need to complete both the application and registration process for Utah Tech University. The application must be done 24-48 hours prior to registration. The first time a student completes the application, they will receive an email from UT with their Digital ID number and instructions to get their MyUT account set-up.

Once students have completed their application, they are able to register for courses. Students can take courses either on their high school campus or on the Utah Tech University campus (this includes online courses at UT).

For courses at the high schools: Students can complete the registration process on their MyUT account by following these instructions.
For courses on UT campus: Students can reach out to our office to get registered. Students will need to send us their Digital ID number and the CRN(s) for the course(s) they would like to take, which can be found here.

How do concurrent enrollment courses apply to high school graduation requirements?

General education courses (required by UT for associate and bachelor degrees) overlap with many of the high school graduation requirements. For example, a student may take an ENGL 1010 course (required by UT) and also have that course count towards their Language Arts 12 required by the high school. Each CE course has a high school equivalent, whether it be as a core requirement or an elective. To see exactly how CE courses fulfill high school requirements, students and counselors can look at the CE Master List.

A student is trying to apply for concurrent enrollment, but their application is not going through. What do they do?

Generally students run into problems with the state application when the information they’re submitting on the application does not match what the state has on file for the students. Either their personal information is entered incorrectly (it must match exactly what is on their transcript), or their high school information is not up-to-date on the state’s side. Newly transferred students will need to use the application found on a Counselor Resources page.

What courses are available to CE students?

Utah Tech University currently has over 100 courses available to students through the concurrent enrollment program. Students can take courses at their high school, on UT main or branch campuses, and even online.

When and how can middle school students start preparing to take concurrent enrollment courses?

While UT only requires a 3.0 GPA to participate in concurrent enrollment, individual schools may set a higher standard to ensure students are successful.

Example: Some middle schools look specifically at the student’s grade in their 8th grade computer class to determine eligibility for CIS 1200 (Business Office Specialist) in the 9th grade. One high school requires a minimum GPA of 3.5 in order to take CE classes on their campus. Dual immersion students need to work hard from the very beginning of their program so they will be competent to pass the AP exam in 9th grade—opening the door to 3000 level college level courses during 10th, 11th & 12th grade.

If students are interested in STEM fields they should plan to take:

Honors Biology in 9th grade to prepare them for BIOL 1610/15 in 10th grade. We recommend saving chemistry or physics for a later year after they have had more math. We do not recommend 1010 science classes for STEM students.
and one of the following:

Sec. Math I in the 8th grade setting them up for MATH 1050 & 1060 during 11th grade at their high school and Calculus I & II their senior year at UT
Honors Sec. Math 1, 2 & 3 from 9th-11th grade (allowing them to skip MATH 1050 and take MATH 1080 and Calculus I their senior year at UT
