Concurrent Enrollment in Mapleton
Concurrent Enrollment in Mapleton
As a part of our college and career-going culture, your child has the opportunity to enroll in college courses at Front Range Community College (FRCC) while attending high school in Mapleton. Concurrent enrollment supports our commitment to providing each student with rigorous academic content, enrichment opportunities, and access to academic courses beyond what is available in high school.
To ensure no obstacle impedes your child’s success, Mapleton Public Schools pays the tuition for college courses successfully completed by a qualified student and for which a student receives high school credit. Your child may also receive credit toward graduation requirements for successful completion of approved postsecondary courses.
To participate in concurrent enrollment, students must request approval from their School Director and Post-Secondary Options Coach (PSOC).
To qualify for concurrent enrollment, students must:
- Be less than 21 years of age
- Be enrolled in a Mapleton high school (9th-12th grade)
- Meet the minimum prerequisites and academic readiness for the postsecondary courses in which they seek to enroll according to both Front Range Community College and Mapleton Public Schools
Additional concurrent enrollment details:
Students and families participating in concurrent enrollment are required to sign an agreement stating that if the student does not earn a ‘C’ or higher or does not complete the course for any reason without the consent of their school director, the student and/or the student’s parent/guardian will need to repay the amount of tuition paid by the Mapleton on the student’s behalf.
Families are responsible for the cost of textbooks and fees associated with all postsecondary courses. Scholarships are available. Please talk to your child’s school director for additional information.
Please see our Concurrent Enrollment Board Policy IHCDA for additional information.

Enrollment Process and Important Deadlines:
If your child meets the criteria described above and is interested in enrolling for postsecondary courses during the Spring Semester, please follow these next important steps:
By Friday, Oct. 15, 2021, parent/guardian must complete the brief form linked below to express your child’s interest in Concurrent Enrollment for Spring 2022: https://forms.office.com/r/XzM1LFpFcx
(Ongoing) Your child must maintain communication with his/her PSOC and complete all required concurrent enrollment steps. Your child’s PSOC will ensure it fits his/her Individualized Career and Academic Plan.
By Monday, Nov. 1, 2021, Parent/Guardian attends the information session and electronically signs and submits the Concurrent Enrollment Agreement (FRCC Concurrent Enrollment College Agreement). Your child will need his/her FRCC-issued student number (“S-number”) to sign the form. Click Here for a copy of the Concurrent Enrollment College Agreement in Spanish.
By Wednesday, Dec. 1, 2021, complete all additional required steps, including registration through the student’s eWolf account from FRCC as outlined by your child’s PSOC.
Verify that you and your child have completed all required steps both from Mapleton and FRCC. Your child must provide their PSOC with a PDF of their schedule from their FRCC eWolf account at least five weeks prior to the start of the term (Wednesday, Dec. 1, for Spring 2022), and any other documentation as requested. This is a very important step because registering for FRCC courses may require the school to adjust your child’s high school schedule.
If you do not receive notification of approval by Wednesday, Dec. 1, please contact Jacque Ewing, Post Secondary Options Coordinator, firstname.lastname@example.org.
* IMPORTANT: If your child has specific, individual needs (i.e., 504 or IEP), please contact FRCC's Office of Disability Services to learn about how your child’s needs will be met. For more information from the Colorado Department of Education please click here.
If you have any questions or need assistance, please contact your child’s PSOC or Jill Fuller, Executive Director of Integrated Services, at 303.853.1128, email@example.com.
