    Dual Credit Deadlines!!!!

     

    ApplyTexas deadline- updated February 26, 2021

     

    TSI registration deadline- February 19, 2021

     

    TSI Pre- Assessment must be completed by February 22, 2021 

     

    Registration forms are due no later than May 12th.  They need to be turned in as soon as the student receives his/her credentials for NCTC.

    You need to have completed an ApplyTexas application and have an NCTC I.D. number, (which you will receive once your application has been processed), in order to register. You also need to make sure that you have activated your NCTC email account. NCTC will communicate with you through this email address.

    If you qualify for a scholarship, it will cover half of a full credit class (three college hours).


    Here are a few important things to remember, regarding dual credit for the 2021/22 school year:
     
    If a student took a dual credit class this school year, they do NOT need to complete the ApplyTexas at this time.  Those students will just need to complete the GoogleDoc and submit a registration form to me by May 12th.  This HAS to be done even if they are current dual credit students!
     
    Summer registration is open for current dual credit students.  Summer registration will open on April 15th for new dual credit students.  If a student wants to take a summer class and a class in the school year, they will need to complete two different registration forms.  Summer course cannot be on the same registration form as fall/spring courses.
     
    ALL dual credit offerings are listed on the course card.  There is a video that tells you what classes are offered on our campus.  If a student wants to take a class that is NOT offered on our campus, they do NOT need to put it in their Skyward schedule.  If they did, they will need to let me know so we can change it to an off period, if that is what they plan to do.  Students can still take 4 high school courses and take the additional dual credit class outside the school day.  Either way, I will need to know what to replace the course with.
     
    Registration forms need to be filled out COMPLETELY.  If a student is taking a course that is not offered on the FMHS campus, it is their responsibility to find the section number for the course.  This is explained in the registration video I provided. This is the link for the NCTC course catalog.  https://my.nctc.edu/ICS/Academics/
     
    The dual credit page of the FMHS website has all of the information you should need to answer questions, as well as complete the enrollment/registration process.  Please refer to that as necessary.  https://www.lisd.net/Page/6898
