Concurrent/Dual Enrollment Programs

Attention Parents/Guardians:

   When you sign the authorization form allowing your child to enroll in a college class, regardless of the location of the class, you are acknowledging that in a college course the instructor and school ONLY speaks with the student. As a parent/guardian of a college student you do not have the right to access the grades, or instructor. In some cases the instructor will have the student sign a waiver that allows them to share grades (via helix canvas) and talk with parents/guardians. This decision is at the discretion of the instructor.
