Our Concurrent Enrollment Program

Gaetz Aerospace Institute is a premier cooperative partnership linking Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University with secondary schools.

Gaetz Aerospace Institute is a premier cooperative partnership linking Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University with secondary schools. Through this partnership, high schools can offer students the opportunity to enroll in Embry-Riddle courses for university credit. Students can earn FREE college credit by attending college-level classes while in high school. That is a huge savings of time and money. Our concurrent enrollment follows the high school schedule, so students don’t have to leave campus to attend our courses.

Since its official launch in 2004, the Embry-Riddle concurrent enrollment program has grown considerably from a single academy to over 60 participating high schools.

We are continuing to grow in our course offerings every year. Today, our concurrent enrollment program offers 18 Embry-Riddle courses from seven disciplines. The spectrum of introductory college courses offered through Embry-Riddle includes:

  • Principles of Aeronautical Science
