3. A high school junior or senior who does not demonstrate college-readiness on an approved assessment or placement test may be provisionally enrolled in a College Transfer Pathway. To qualify for Provisional Status, a student must meet the following criteria:

a. Have a cumulative weighted GPA of 3.5;

b. Have completed two years of high school English with a grade of ‘C’ or higher;

c. Have completed high school Algebra II (or a higher level math class) with a grade of ‘C’ of higher;

d. Obtain the written approval of the high school principal or his/her designee; and,

e. Obtain the written approval of the community college president or his/her designee.

A Provisional Status student may register only for college mathematics (MAT) and college English (ENG) courses within the chosen Pathway. To be eligible to register for other courses in the Pathway, the student must first successfully complete mathematics and English courses with a grade of ‘C’ or higher.

 

4. To maintain eligibility for continued enrollment, a student must

a. Continue to make progress toward high school graduation, and

b. Maintain a 2.0 GPA in college coursework after completing two courses. Students who fall below a cumulative academic* 2.0 GPA at FTCC will not be eligible for future High School Connections courses.      

(* a student's academic GPA does not include any penalization for course grades of "W"; however, students also have a financial aid GPA that factors in a course withdrawl as a grade of "F", so students are encouraged to think VERY carefully before withdrawing from any courses as this action may negatively affect their future financial aid availability.)

 

5. A student must enroll in one College Transfer Pathway program of study and may not substitute courses in one program for courses in another.

 

6. A student may change his or her program of study major with approval of the high school principal or his/her designee and the college’s chief student development administrator.

 

7. With approval of the high school principal or his/her designee and the college’s chief student development administrator, a student may enroll in both a College Transfer Pathway program of study and a Career and Technical Education Pathway program of study.
