  1. taking college-level career and technical education courses at western colorado community college as a technical scholar;

  2. enrolling in a colorado mesa university course offered at the student's high school as a high school scholar;

  3. enrolling in a colorado mesa university course on one of the cmu campuses as an early scholar; or

  4. participating in the ascent program, a special program that allows qualifying students to pursue college full-time while being counted as a high school student.
