Parallel Enrollment Applicants
SU sponsors a Parallel Enrollment program for academically talented high school students. This program allows students from the local area to take up to two courses during one or both semesters of their senior year. Participants may take up to fourteen (14) credits through the Parallel Enrollment program.
A minimum cumulative high school GPA of 3.0 (B) is required for admission. Students who wish to enroll in English or math courses must submit SAT or ACT scores for placement purposes. For all applicants, scheduling a personal interview with the Parallel Enrollment Admissions Counselor is strongly recommended.
Students applying for parallel enrollment must submit:
- Parallel Enrollment Application (PDF)
- Official high school transcript
- Letter of endorsement from their high school guidance counselor
- Letter of permission to enroll from a parent or legal guardian
- $25 non-refundable application processing fee
The application and supporting materials, including the $25 application fee, must be received by the following deadlines:
All information should be mailed to:
c/o Parallel Enrollment Program
1525 Greenspring Valley Road
Stevenson, MD 21153
Parallel Enrollment students pay tuition on a per-credit basis, as do all part-time students at the College. Students accepted to the program, however, receive a Stevenson University Parallel Enrollment scholarship of $100 per credit to help defray tuition expenses.
Parallel Enrollment students must earn a minimum 3.0 GPA in their first semester of SU coursework in order to be eligible to pursue coursework for a second semester.
