      6. If students are exempt from taking TSI based on EOC or PSAT scores, it is NOT necessary to send Ms. Berry those scores.  You are only required to send ACT or SAT scores if those are what you are using as the TSI exemption.  ALL students who are taking CHEM 1411 and 1412 MUST submit an ACT or SAT score.  Those students cannot be exempt from TSI based on EOC or PSAT scores.  Students interested in taking CHEM 1411 and 1412 who have NOT taken ACT or SAT will need to take MATH 1314 over the summer in order to qualify.

      7. Transcripts and PSAT and EOC scores will be automatically sent to NCTC.  You do NOT need to request to have a transcript sent,  You do NOT have to send Ms. Berry your EOC or PSAT scores.  You ONLY have to send scores if you are using ACT or SAT scores as your TSI waiver.  ALL chemistry students must send me your test scores.  Please make sure the report includes your first and last name.

      8. If not exempt from TSI, sign up to take it at FMHS. Deadline to sign up is March 1, 2022.

      9. Go to the FMHS Testing page or click on the link above to sign up.  TSI Pre- Assessment MUST be completed by March 5th in order to test on March 8th or 9th.  This is NOT optional.  If you miss the deadline to sign up or complete the pre-assessment, you will need to sign up to take the TSI at another institution.  NCTC offers TSI on their campuses.

The form MUST have the NCTC username and ID#.  2022-23 Dual Credit Registration Form;  Registration Form Example - Registration forms are due no later than March 31st.  They need to be turned in as soon as the student receives his/her credentials from NCTC.     

        Due to hackers and malware, NCTC is unable to send out personal information. This is the information you will need to know about the letter dual credit students will receive from NCTC. 

        The first email from NCTC will be “NCTC Application Received”.  It will include a list of missing items in the first paragraph. If it mentions test scores or transcript, disregard. If it mentions residency documents, contact Mrs. Mannion so she can guide you through the next steps. The second paragraph will address scholarships.

        The second email, sent from NCTC,  will begin with “Thank you for choosing NCTC…….”  This is the welcome letter and will provide instructions to the OneLogin Portal.  It will list your USERNAME and Temporary Password in order to setup your OneLogin.  The Temporary Password is the first 7 numbers and will be your NCTC ID. 

        Example:  Student's name is Ima Jag. This is the information Ima would receive to set-up her account.

    Dual Credit Deadlines!!!!

    GoApplyTexas deadline- March 3, 2022

    TSI registration deadline-  March 1, 2022. 

    TSI Pre-Assessment must be completed by March 5, 2022 

    Registration forms are due no later than March 31, 2022.  They need to be turned in as soon as the student receives his/her credentials for NCTC.

    You need to have completed a GoApplyTexas 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 2022/23 school year:

     

    If you took a dual credit class this school year, you do NOT need to complete the GoApplyTexas application at this time.  You WILL need to sign up for the class in Skyward, complete the GoogleDoc, and submit a registration form to Ms. Berry by March 31st.  All of these things must be completed even if you are a current dual credit student!

     

    Summer registration is open for current dual credit students.  Summer registration will open on April 15th for new dual credit students.  If you want to take a summer class, in addition to a class in the school year, you will need to complete two different registration forms.  Summer courses cannot be on the same registration form as fall/spring courses.

     

    ALL dual credit offerings are listed on our website.  Embedded classes are also included on the course cards that are given out during registration. There is a video that tells you what classes are offered on our campus.  If you want to take a class that is NOT offered on our campus, you do NOT need to put it in your Skyward schedule.  Let your counselor know if you plan to have an off period for the class.  Students may NOT have an off period for a dual credit class in addition to senior in or senior out.  The same applies if a student is taking external PE.  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 let your counselor know if you want an off period.

     

    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 the following link if necessary.  https://www.lisd.net/Page/6898
