MnSCU Webinars on Dual Credit Begin Today

By May 21, 2016 No Comments

The Minnesota State Colleges & Universities system (MnSCU) will host a series of webinars this week to gain feedback from school leaders on the framework for “Tested Experience” for the new guidelines on those teaching concurrent enrollments classes to high school students.

High school teachers, principals and counselors are encouraged to review and provide feedback during the webinars:

  • Monday, May 23: 1-2:30 pm
  • Wednesday, May 25: 3-4:30 pm
  • Thursday, May 26: 10-11:30 am

To register, please use the following link: Select the session date you would like to attend. The session title is: MnSCU Tested Experience Framework Review and Comment.

Comments collected from the Web-Ex will be shared with the system work group. If individuals are not able to attend the these sessions, feedback can be sent to by Friday, May 27. Please cc MREA on your feedback.

The work group is tentatively scheduled to share recommendations on the framework to the MnSCU Leadership Council in early this summer.

Both MnSCU and the University of Minnesota released for stakeholder comment draft frameworks for “Tested Experience.” Learn more.

Tuition Changes

MnSCU also decided a month ago to adopt a uniform tuition for concurrent enrollment courses that for some high schools doubles their cost per dual credit course. MnSCU described this increase in a memo to the campus concurrent enrollment coordinators with general instructions to pass this along to the high schools. Learn more.
