Idaho Public Schools - When using Advanced Opportunities Funds 

A student account must be created with the State of Idaho Advanced Opportunities program and wait to be approved as an Idaho Public School student. Once approved, you will need to go in and allocate your money to the Institutions that offer the college credit.
Both steps (college registration and Advanced Opportunities allocation) must be completed before the last Friday in September for year-long and Fall semester courses. See the State of Idaho Advanced Opportunity website for specific dates or changes.
If a student is not using Advanced Opportunity funds, they can follow the guidelines for private schools noted below.
Private Schools - Register and pay tuition by November 15 for fall and year-long courses and February 24 for spring courses. Or you may turn in registration with a $10 non-refundable fee per course before the deadline. This will allow you time to determine if you would like to pay for the college credits. If you decide that you would like college credit, you must pay full tuition 10 days before the end of the course. NNU accepts cash or checks (made payable to NNU). Please indicate the students name on the check.
Please note: This $10 placeholder fee CANNOT be paid online and must be paid by check or money order sent with the packet of registration materials from your high school teacher and is offered only for year-long courses in the Fall.
Completely miss the deadline? You can still petition to receive credit before the end of the course. If the petition is approved, there will be a $50 late fee per course on top of tuition charges due within two weeks of petition approval.
When you register for a course through the Concurrent Credit Program, you become a part-time student at Northwest Nazarene University. Like all NNU students, your academic records will be maintained by the NNU registrar's office. When you attend college or university after high school graduation, you will be a First-time Freshman. Concurrent credits do not make you a transfer student.
Course offerings are normally reserved for qualified high school students, depending on the course. Special permission from the concurrent instructor and NNU is required for students who are freshmen.
Concurrent Credit courses are $75/credit. Most courses are 3 or 4 credits.
