Concurrent Enrollment

This program is intended for students who are enrolled at an approved community college and Grand Valley during the same semester and would like to have their enrollment from both schools combined to determine financial aid eligibility. Financial aid would be awarded by Grand Valley.  As a reminder, students who are concurrently enrolled at two institutions will not be eligible to receive aid at Grand Valley and another institution during the same period.

  • Grand Rapids Community College
  • Lake Michigan College
  • Muskegon Community College

Concurrent Enrollment Policies

  1. A student's financial aid eligibility will be determined based on the combined credits at GVSU and the host institution, for a semester in which the student is concurrently enrolled. If a student's enrollment status changes the student is responsible for submitting a new class schedule.
  2. Credits are verified as of the 5th day of class at GVSU each semester.  Financial aid is based on the combined credits as of this date.
  3. If a student completely withdraws from both schools financial aid will be recalculated. 
  4. Students are responsible for paying their bill at the host institution. Financial aid will not be transferred or released early for students participating in the concurrent enrollment program.
  5. If a student does not successfully pass their attempted credits at the host institution the student may not be eligible to participate in concurrent enrollment for future semesters.
  6. The student is responsible for having a transcript sent to the GVSU Record's Office after the conclusion of the host institution's semester. Earned credits from the host institution will not be transferred to GVSU until this is completed.
