Concurrent  Enrollment  Discounts

Concurrent enrollment is when the Fort Campbell term is completely embedded in the main campus term.  Fall II and Spring II (Fort Campbell terms), are considered concurrent because both terms begin and end within the main campus term.  Fall I and Spring I terms both begin prior to the main campus term, therefore, they are not considered concurrent.
If you are enrolled for and have paid for at least 12 credit hours of undergraduate tuition or 10 credit hours of graduate tuition on main campus, you are entitled to a concurrent enrollment discount for classes taken during the second Fort Campbell terms.
The discount is only applied to tuition. Students are still responsible for all other fees such as the technology access fee, and any special course fees such as the web on-line course fee.  
An email will be sent once the adjustment has been made to your account.  You must still confirm your classes before the drop date.  The link below provides instructions on how to confirm your classes.   http://www.apsu.edu/confirm

Concurrent enrollment discounts will not be prorated if a class is dropped at any time during an adjustment period in which the discount was applied.  The discount will be reversed in full since the class was not completed.
