Glossary of Terms

Concurrent Enrollment Classes
College courses used for credit at both the high school and college level. Students attend class at their high school or at one of the LMC campuses. What makes them different from dual enrollment classes is that they are taught by high school teachers who have been credentialed as college instructors. Grades and credit are recorded on an official LMC transcript as college-level courses. Tuition and fees are charged at 30% of college tuition and fees.*

Dual Enrollment Classes
College courses that may be used for credit at both the high school and college level. Students attend class at one of the LMC campuses or at their high school. The classes are taught by LMC faculty members. Grades and credit are recorded on an official LMC transcript as college-level courses. Tuition and fees are charged at 100% of college tuition and fees.*

Academy and Shared-time Programs
Classes in which a student may be dual enrolled in their high school, another area high school, and LMC. Classes are typically held at one of the LMC campuses and taught by college faculty or high school teachers who are credentialed to teach at the college level. These courses may consist of either concurrent enrollment and dual enrollment classes, or a combination of both.

Career Technical Education
Career and technical education programs are designed to prepare students for a wide range of employment opportunities and post-secondary training. They are offered under the guidance of certified teachers and counselors at many high schools, area technical centers, and LMC campuses.
