Lawrence high schools to host orientations for concurrent-credit college courses

Orientation sessions for students interested in earning college credit while still in high school are coming up next week. If your student is interested, there is still some time to look over available classes or talk with counselors ahead of orientation.

Before enrolling with a college or university, students will first need to enroll in concurrent credit with their high school counselor.

High school juniors and seniors in the Lawrence school district can enroll in concurrent-credit college courses through three area schools: Kansas University, Johnson County Community College and Neosho County Community College.
