Concurrent Enrollment Grant Program


Increasing opportunities for high school students to earn high school and college credit through concurrent enrollment course offerings.

The Minnesota Office of Higher Education administers the Concurrent Enrollment Grant Program (CEGP) per Minnesota Statutes 136A.91, which was established by the Minnesota Legislature in 2015. The CEGP is a funding source which aims to increase access to postsecondary education for Minnesota high school students by providing funds to postsecondary institutions for the development of new concurrent enrollment courses and the expansion of existing concurrent enrollment programs.

Who is Eligible to Apply?

An eligible application must meet all of the following:

  • Minnesota postsecondary institution
  • Accredited by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC), at the time of proposal submission
  • Accredited by the National Alliance of Concurrent Enrollment Partnerships (NACEP) or working towards NACEP accreditation

What are Eligible Program Initiatives?

An eligible applicant may apply For CEGP funding to support either of the following eligible program initiatives:

  • New Career and Technical Education (CTE) Concurrent Enrollment Courses: Develop new concurrent enrollment courses under Minnesota Statutes, section 124D.09, subdivision 10 that satisfy the elective standard for career and technical education.
  • Expansion of Existing Concurrent Enrollment Program: Expand concurrent enrollment programs already offered by the postsecondary institution and support the preparation, recruitment, and success of students who are underrepresented in concurrent enrollment classrooms by creating new sections within the same high school or offering the existing course in new high schools.

Courses must not be developmental (remedial) courses or any other course that is not college level.

An applicant may elect to pursue both program initiatives; therefore, would be required to submit two separate proposals. Each proposal would be evaluated and awarded separately.

How Much Money Can a Grantee Receive?

Total appropriation and grant award amount available for fiscal year 2024 is $340,000. Applicants are not limited by a maximum grant amount. However, applicants may receive partial grant awards based upon competitive priority parameters, budget efficiency and/or availability of grant funds.

What is the Application Process?

The 2024 application period is closed. The 2025 application period is TBD.
