Concurrent Enrollment Request

Students must secure permission from the Office of Academic Advising before registering for courses if they want to register concurrently at another university, regardless of the delivery method of the course. In the absence of extenuating circumstances necessitating concurrent registration, such permission will not generally be granted. Requests for concurrent enrollment that will cause a student to have a registration overload, will not be considered.

To seek permission, please review the Concurrent Enrollment Petition process here.

Concurrent enrollment approval is only necessary for courses that overlap the Rice academic year. If you take a course in the summer that commences after the end of the Rice spring semester, and concludes before the start of the Rice fall semester, concurrent enrollment approval is not required.

If students have any questions about concurrent enrollment, please email
