Concurrent credit is a system in which you can gain college credit for classes you take in high school. Agreements are completed by your high school and National Park College (NPC) allowing you to enroll in courses at your high school and also register for college credit in those courses from NPC. The classes are taught at the college level and the instructors use college syllabi and textbooks to teach the classes. The instructors are approved by NPC and have the same credentials as the on-campus faculty. The classes are recognized and accredited by the National Alliance of Concurrent Enrollment Partnerships (NACEP) which allows students to transfer the courses to colleges and universities throughout Arkansas and in many cases to out of state institutions. Concurrent Credit also adheres to the Arkansas Department of Higher Education Coordinating Board and the Higher Learning Commission policies. To enroll in the classes you must meet the eligibility requirements listed under the Enrollment section.

Each class taken for college credit is listed on your NPC transcript and counts toward your college GPA. The Arkansas Department of Higher Education (ADHE) has a Course Transfer Equivalency Guide which contains information on the transferability of courses.
