High school concurrent instructors must have their Masters Degree with a minimum of 18 hours of graduate level credit in the subject they wish to teach. This is inclusive of a Masters degree in the subject area, or additional hours earned after their Masters degree has been conferred if the original degree is not within the subject an instructor wishes to teach.
No, but you will need to have your textbook approved by your faculty liaison via the textbook approval form in the Faculty Handbook.
Yes, but you are only required to enter mid-term and final grades through Vanguard Portal. Our Information Technology Department has created a brief video presentation on how to use the Vanguard Portal. You may contact the Office of Concurrent Enrollment should you need assistance.
Yes. Your Final exam for the course must be cumulative. Certain courses have department issued final exams which are administered in all course sections, including concurrent course sections taught on a high school campus.

Frequently Asked Questions - Counselors
The ASU-Beebe campus management software requires official test scores to be entered into students' records before the Office of Concurrent Enrollment is able to add courses to their schedule folder. Please attach your student's test scores to their Concurrent Enrollment Policy/Parent Consent Form.
Since concurrent students are non-degree seeking, official transcripts are not required as part of the concurrent enrollment process unless proof of pre-requisite satisfaction is required for an individual course (e.g. General Chemistry I (CHEM1014) requires students to have passed high school Chemistry with a grade of "C" or better).
Submission of official transcripts is not discouraged; however, it will allow your students to expediently apply to attend ASU-Beebe after their high school graduation date.
Passed by the Arkansas Legislature in the spring 2017 session, ACT 1118 mandates that a "national school lunch student, as defined in § 6-20-2303, shall not be required to pay any of the costs up to a maximum of six (6) credit hours of endorsed concurrent enrollment courses" when the courses are "taught on the grounds of the public school district in which the student is enrolled; and by a teacher employed by the public school district in which the student is enrolled."
The Arkansas Department of Higher Education has clarified that the "maximum of six (6) credit hours" is for the entirety of a student's high school career. Once a student has earned six (6) credit hours, they subsequently become responsible for the tuition costs for any additional credit hours in which they enroll.
The tuition for ACT 1118 students must be paid for by the school district; however, a provision was also made for colleges to implement cost sharing measures. ASU-Beebe currently has such a cost sharing measure available for school districts wishing to partner with our college.
ACT 1118 is only applicable for use with "endorsed concurrent classes." A list of these courses is available HERE. Only courses listed in black font are eligible for ACT 1118.
ASU-Beebe offers on-site registration for your students. Our staff will travel to your high school campus to pick up your students forms, transcripts & scores, tuition checks, and also schedule their classes. Counselors and teachers will only need to ensure that students have filled out the online application and completed their Concurrent Enrollment Policy/Parent Consent Forms before the registration date.
We ask that counselors scan and email an absent student's policy form and test scores directly to our office before the conclusion of the late registration period for the semester. Documents may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
Please refer to the ASU-Beebe Academic Calendar for final registration deadlines.
