Technology Intensive Concurrent Enrollment (TICE) is a collaborative program sponsored by the Utah System of Higher Education (USHE) and the Utah State Board of Education (USBE). TICE courses are “technology intensive” meaning they are designed as a hybrid blend of teaching and learning activities that take place in class and online. They are also “concurrent enrollment” so qualified high school juniors and seniors may enroll and earn credit in one of the institutions in the Utah System of High Education (USHE) as well as meet graduation requirements from their high school. This website provides an overview of the TICE program and information on how Utah students, teachers, and schools may participate.
The hybrid design has the advantage of engaging public school teachers to facilitate the courses when offered for concurrent enrollment credit. USHE institutions are encouraged to use the course materials and assessments in their regular college courses. In this way, the common course materials and assessments can provide a close connection between concurrent enrollment and regular college courses to ensure a seamless system of course articulation and transfer credit.
Greg Benson is Assistant Commissioner for Academic and Student Affairs at the Utah System of Higher Education. He previously served as a vice chancellor, dean, and faculty member at Utah State University Eastern where he was involved in concurrent enrollment in both administrative and teaching capacities.
