Concurrent Enrollment (Parent School Letters)

Parent School Letter

A student may take courses at more than one school that apply to his or her degree. The school that will grant the degree is the student’s “parent” school. All other schools are “secondary” schools. VA can pay benefits for courses taken at secondary schools. If the student is only enrolled at the secondary school (supplemental enrollment), VA will pay for the credits taken at the secondary school. If the student is enrolled at the primary school and the secondary school at the same time (concurrent enrollment), VA will pay for the combined credit, taking overlapping enrollment dates into account. The Parent School Letter gives the receiving school assurance that the class, if successfully completed, will apply appropriately to the student’s academic program.

Request a Parent School Letter: Please email the following information to the CUH Registrar (contact information below) if you wish to request a Parent School Letter.

  • name of the school
  • course number
  • course title
  • term dates
  • which of your degree requirements you intend for the class to fulfill.

The CUH Registrar will verify that the school is properly accredited, review the course description and make sure that it is acceptable for transfer in meeting the specific outstanding requirement for which it is intended to count. Therefore, it is important that you obtain the Parent School Letter before actually taking the course.
