Information meetings planned about concurrent enrollment 

April 18, 2011

PLAINVIEW – A set of informational meetings about concurrent enrollment at Wayland Baptist University are planned for April 26 and 28 on the campus for high school sophomores.

The April 26 meeting will be held at 6:30 p.m. in room 110 of the Nunn Business Building, located at the corner of Sixth and Smythe streets. The session will last an hour and will be repeated on April 28 at the same time and location.

Concurrent enrollment allows students at Plainview High, Plainview Christian Academy and local homeschooled students the opportunity to earn college credit while earning credit for their diploma requirements from high school. Classes are typically in the basic areas of the general curriculum and allow students to pick up college credit before they leave high school.

“Our local students are fortunate to have a university like Wayland in their midst for several reasons, and the concurrent program is a big plus,” said Debbie Stennett, director of admissions. “This program allows college-bound students a great opportunity to begin earning credits at a greatly reduced cost while fulfilling their high school obligations as well.

“Some students are able to enroll in their first year of college at nearly the sophomore level due to concurrent classes, which saves them valuable time and money as they work toward a university degree.”

The information sessions will cover all guidelines and costs involved with concurrent enrollment and will include info on deadlines to register for the next terms.
