What is Outreach Education?

Colby Community College is one of 19 publicly supported two-year colleges in Kansas. Colby Community College provides post-secondary educational opportunities to a 14 county service area.

Concurrent Enrollment

It is the policy of the Kansas Board of Regents (KBOR) and Colby Community College to encourage high school students to take advantage of post-secondary education opportunities by enrolling in post-secondary courses while still in high school or participating in home schooling. K.S.A. 2000 Supp. 72-11a01 through 72-11a05 provide for these opportunities through the Kansas Challenge to Secondary School Pupils Act. High school students in 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th grades are eligible to take concurrent enrollment classes provided they meet specific course prerequisites and placement testing requirements.

For questions about outreach classes or for more information about concurrent enrollment classes, email the outreach director.
