The Concurrent Credit Program at Northwest Nazarene University hosted its seventh annual Summer Institute for high school faculty on August 1. The theme for the 2011 summer institute was “Courses that Matter: Impacting Student Learning.” Participants included cooperating high school instructors from public and private schools around the Northwest as-well-as were local high school administrators, representatives from Idaho education offices and NNU’s faculty member mentors discussed academic issues for the classroom.
The “concurrent/duel enrollment” program offers high school students the opportunity to receive college credit for college-rigorous courses that are taught by qualified teachers on the local high school campus. During 2010-11, the program served over 2,300 high school students while working with 60 Northwest high schools (including 43 in Idaho).
The program is a member of and accredited by NACEP (National Alliance of Concurrent Enrollment Partnerships). More information on concurrent credit can be obtained by calling 467-8373 or visiting www.nnu.edu/concurrentcredit.
