Concurrent Enrollment & Career Pathways
What is concurrent enrollment?
Lumen's high school concurrent enrollment students earn college credit from UVU
High school concurrent enrollment provides students with opportunities to get a head start on their college education and future career while attending Lumen Scholar Institute. Students who decide to partake in our concurrent enrollment program earn college credits at Utah Valley University (UVU). We offer two different tracks — a general education certificate or an associate degree — to give our high schoolers the flexibility to choose the program that best fits their schedule, academic ambitions, and future career goals.
UVU Concurrent Enrollment
unique general education courses
In addition to saving students time and money, concurrent enrollment at UVU gives our high school scholars a positive introduction to college-level academics and expectations within the helpful confines of the Lumen support system. We've found that students who take UVU courses while earning their high school diplomas at Lumen not only earn valuable college credits but also build confidence in their abilities to succeed in college and beyond.
General education certificate
Students take up to 35 college credits in lower-level General Education courses which can be applied to a General Education Certificate from Utah Valley University or another Utah-based university.
Utah Valley University Associate Degree
Students take 60 General Education college credits and have the opportunity to earn a University Studies Associate Degree from Utah Valley University.
