The Concurrent Credit Program is a partnership between NNU and participating high schools, offering the opportunity for qualifying high school students to begin college while still enrolled in high school. Courses are offered in the high school classrooms during the regular school day, and are taught by high school teachers who have been approved by NNU departments to teach the courses for NNU credit as adjunct instructors.
- The Concurrent Credit Program serves high schools in Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Washington.
- Courses offered through the Concurrent Credit Program are the same as those taught to freshmen and sophomores on the NNU campus. However, the partnership with the high school allows for a significant college tuition discount.
