Concerning local education providers' receipt of concurrent enrollment courses from a two-year institution of higher education outside of the institution's approved service area when the institution approved to serve the local education provider declines to provide concurrent enrollment courses.
2018 Regular Session
Higher Education
Bill Summary

Concurrent enrollment programs - outside of college service area. Under current law, a 2-year institution of higher education may provide a concurrent enrollment program or course to local education providers that are located within the institution's college service area approved by the Colorado commission on higher education (commission). The act requires the commission to establish a policy that allows a 2-year institution of higher education to provide a concurrent enrollment program or course to a local education provider that is not within its college service area if the designated 2-year institution of higher education chooses not to provide a concurrent enrollment program or course requested by the local education provider.

The act specifies how these concurrent enrollment programs or courses will be funded and clarifies that the act does not affect provisions in article 35 of title 22, Colorado Revised Statutes, relating to the tuition rate paid for concurrent enrollment programs or courses.

(Note: This summary applies to this bill as enacted.)
