Concurrent Enrollment

Concurrent Enrollment Information

Lawton Public Schools offers concurrent enrollment classes for students like most districts, but at LPS what makes it so unique is that our students pay nothing to enroll and attend classes. The below video explains more on concurrent enrollment at LPS.

Set Yourself Up for Success

Consider the time needed outside of class to learn the content and complete assignments. Plan your schedule according to your other responsibilities and extracurriculars. If you have any questions or concerns, reach out to the LRC staff or your school counselor. Proper planning and preparation are key to your success.

Advantages to Concurrent Enrollment

  • Make progress toward your college degree while completing high school

  • Reduce the cost of your college degree

  • Enjoy a collegial atmosphere as you learn

  • Take college courses in a non- threatening environment

  • Build the confidence needed to complete your college degree

  • Take personal responsibility for your own future

Important Notes

  • The grades and credits high school students earn in concurrent classes are recorded on all college transcripts.

  • Be prepared to work hard. The main difference between a college class and a high school class is that you are expected to work 1-2 hours outside of class for each hour in class. For example, in a three-hour course, you should be prepared to work 6-9 hours outside of class. Plan your schedule accordingly.

  • If you plan to attend CU or OU (and most other OK colleges), great! All credits apply.

  • For other universities/colleges, please check the general education requirements and transfer policies. We can help you!
