MATC Sophomore Preview Visit
Spring 2022 SWOSU Concurrent Enrollment
SWOSU concurrent enrollment will open for the Spring 2022 semester starting October 2nd. Attached you will find a copy of the Concurrent Enrollment Signature Form that must be complete. Classes fill up quick, so please turn in these completed packets to SWOSU as soon as possible. If they get them before October 2nd, they can begin planning the student’s schedules now, and that will make it easier to enroll on October 2nd.
Please note: you will also need to apply to the university if you have not already.
Included, is a Concurrent Enrollment Help Sheet, with important information for college students to know. It might also be a good idea to send this worksheet to your parents so they can be familiar with some of the terms used in higher-ed and might feel more comfortable asking questions.
Finally, There is another form that explains how to search for courses and how to fill out the concurrent packet; “Class Schedule Sheet”. This will help you when searching for classes to take and when listing out the concurrent classes on the packet.
Please let Garrett Decker (info below) know if you have any questions! He's always happy to help in any way that he can. He's sometimes hard to reach in the office, so sending him an email or a text is always the easiest way to reach him.
Also, he doesn’t usually answer phone calls if he doesn’t have the number saved.
