1.What happens if I don’t pay by the deadline?
Answer: If full payment is not received by the deadline, you will be dropped from the college credit portion of the class. This could affect your Academic Honors Diploma. Once dropped, a student cannot be re-registered (even if payment is made after the deadline). No exceptions.
2. How will I be billed?
Answer: You will be billed twice each academic year, through both the mail and online — once in the fall, and again in the spring.
3. How do I get my transcript?
Answer: Contact CEP staff member, Tracey Radtke, to request either electronic instructions for requesting via your myPNW account or a paper form. Transcripts are free of charge. Transcripts will not be sent without you ordering them first.
4. Where can I find out which classes transfer where?
Answer: Either by calling us, checking online at www.transferIN.net or by calling the out-of-state/private college you’re interested in.
5. Is grading similar to that of Advanced Placement (AP)?
Answer: No, with Concurrent Enrollment from PNW you are graded like a regular high school class and the final grade is submitted to PNW by your high school instructor.
6. Do I need to apply after high school graduation?
Answer: You may have earned multiple college credits in high school through PNW; however, all graduating seniors must still apply as a “first time college student.”
