Darrel Hammon, Senior Director of Community College Programs at UVU, announced last week just how much Concurrent Enrollment students saved over the 2013-2014 school year. By taking concurrent enrollment classes during high school, students saved 8.2 million dollars in college tuition costs. What a savings, what an opportunity! At $5 per credit hour, concurrent enrollment (college credit earned while in high school) courses save each student hundreds of dollars in college tuition.
