Concurrent Classes

Concurrent. An association is concurrent if the primary class and the secondary class have the same course alpha, and are concurrently taught. Both classes are offered at the same time, in the same location (unless offered via distance education), and are taught by the same instructor, but enroll different students. In some instances the classes are unique, but in other instances such as in distance education, the classes are the same. Usually only two classes are concurrently taught as a set, the primary and secondary class, but there may be more than one secondary class.

Reporting adjustments for each set of concurrent classes:

Class count Only the primary class is counted.
Course Count If classes are the same, only the primary class is counted, else each class in the set is counted.
Equivalent sem hrs Only semester hours for the primary class are counted.
Adjusted sem hrs Only semester hours for the primary class are counted.
Adjusted regs Sum of registrations (regs) in each class. Counted with the primary class.
Adjusted SSH Sum of SSH (student semester hours) in each class. Counted with the primary class.

Classes in a concurrent set may also be reported separately as appropriate.
