What is Outreach Education?

Colby Community College offers instruction at a number of outreach sites in surrounding counties. Outreach courses have the same placement and prerequisite requirements and include the same content and rigor as traditional on-campus classes. Students at these sites can be confident in transferring, as the Kansas Board of Regents has approved 56 courses for guaranteed transfer among all Kansas public postsecondary institutions.

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 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 if specific course prerequisites and placement testing requirements are met. For more information, visit the Regents website at or view the CEP brochure

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