The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) of 1974 prohibits Utah State University from releasing certain personally identifiable information from a student's record to a third party (e.g. parent, spouse, etc.) without the student's explicit consent.
If a student is attending a postsecondary institution - at any age - the rights under FERPA have transferred to the student. Click here for more information about FERPA.
Code of Conduct
High school students enrolled in Concurrent Enrollment courses are held to the same standard of conduct as USU College students. Utah State University does not discriminate based on race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, genetic information, sexual orientation or gender identity/expression, disability, status as a protected veteran, or any other status protected by University policy or local, state, or federal law.
LOA and Deferment
If you plan on leaving for church or military service, apply now. USU will hold admission and some USU scholarships until you return. Learn more at https://www.usu.edu/sots/loa.

Given that almost every high school has a different bell schedule, if your high school opts to receive USU's broadcast CE courses, please know that the student will need to work with his or her other high school instructors to be able to leave early or arrive late from his or her other classes in order to fully attend the CE course.
Assemblies and sports activities
Because broadcast courses are received at high schools across the state, CE course instructors cannot accommodate students missing class to attend assemblies, sports activities, district specific holidays or early out/late start days.
Student progress in a broadcast course is tracked in a Learning Management System used by USU called Canvas and not in the regular school's system such as PowerSchool or Aspire. To monitor a student's progress the student will have to show his or her parent or guardian the progress by logging into Canvas. Please visit with your student for more information.
If a student's USU GPA falls below 2.0, an email is sent to the student notifying him or her that an academic hold will be placed on the student's account preventing the student from registering for more CE courses.
The record adjustment provides the opportunity for you to petition for changes to your academic transcript (credit adjustment, course addition, withdrawal with "W" notation, etc.). A "W" (withdrawal notification) is a registration status and is not calculated into your GPA. usu.edu/registrar/records/update/petition/
Disability Resource Center
Accommodations in concurrent enrollment classes must be requested through the Disability Resource Center (DRC) at Utah State University. While an IEP or 504 Plan may be used as supporting documentation for accommodation requests, the accommodations listed therein must be approved by USUâ€™s DRC before they may be provided for this course. If you have a physical, mental health, or learning disability that may require accommodations in this course, please contact the DRC as early in the semester as possible (435-797-2444, firstname.lastname@example.org). All disability related accommodations must be approved by the DRC. Once approved, the DRC will coordinate with your instructor to provide accommodations.
Holds - Academic
Academic probation serves as a warning to students that their academic progress is not satisfactory, and that they should take steps to improve their academic performance to avoid suspension from the University. Academic probation is an indication of very serious academic difficulty which may result in suspension from the University. A Registrar's Office hold will then be placed on the student's record, preventing him or her from registering for a second additional semester. It is the student's responsibility to meet with their counselor and clear the conditions causing the "hold."
Holds - Failure to Pay
A "Records Hold" will be placed on a student's record when an outstanding financial obligation or disciplinary action has been reported. When a "hold" is placed on a record, the following results may occur: (1) An official and/or unofficial transcript may not be issued; (2) registration privileges may be suspended; (3) other student services may be revoked. The "hold" will remain effective until payment has been made or the disciplinary action is resolved. It is the student's responsibility to clear the conditions causing the "hold."
Concurrent enrollment program costs are not subject to fee waiver. College admission fees cannot be waived. Student costs related to concurrent enrollment coursesâ€”which may include consumables, lab fees, copying, and material costs, as well as textbooks required for the courseâ€”are subject to fee waiver from the High School. Contact your High School Counselor for more information.
Courses cannot repeated in the Concurrent Enrollment program without paying the full University tuition and fees for the course.
30 Credit Limit
Individual students will be permitted to earn up to 30 semester hours of college credits per year through concurrent enrollment. Credits in excess of 30 must be approved by the High School & USU Concurrent Enrollment, and the student is responsible for paying full tuition and fees.
