ASCENT

Accelerating Students through Concurrent ENrollmenT

Overview

Students who have completed at least 12 credit hours of postsecondary course prior to completion of his/her 12th grade year may be eligible for the ASCENT Program. They remain students in their Local Education Provider (LEP) for one year following their 12th grade year, and the LEP receives ASCENT specific per-pupil state funding that it uses to pay their college tuition at the resident community college rate. Students receive their high-school diplomas at the end of their ASCENT year. [C.R.S. § 22-35-108]

Students & Parents: please check with your high school counselor for specific information regarding how your school district administrates the ASCENT Program.
