Earn College Credit in High School

In partnership with your school district, FVTC is happy to provide opportunities for your students to explore potential careers, save time and money on college credits, and enter the workforce better prepared. Motivated students can earn more than just technical college credits. Early College Credit courses provide students with opportunities to pathway into technical college credentials while still in high school, at little to no cost to the student or family.
 

Early College Credit Options 

  • Dual Credit: FVTC courses, taught at the high school, by a certified high school teacher. High school teachers are certified and mentored by FVTC faculty to duplicate competencies, curriculum, and assessment. The credits and grades earned will apply to both high school and college graduation at no cost to the school district or family. 
  • Start College Now: Qualified public-school juniors and seniors may take college-level classes at FVTC, if a comparable course is not offered within their district. Eligible students submit a “Start College Now” application and work with school counselors to select coursework. To obtain district school board approval, applications are due to the high school by March 1st for fall classes and October 1st for spring classes. All costs for this program are covered by the high school. If you have any questions, please email StartCollegeNow@versusall.net

PLEASE NOTE: We want to notify you of an upcoming change to advanced standing courses in General Education (Communication Skills, Math, Natural Sciences, and Social Sciences) for the 2024-2025 academic year. Please review Advanced Standing Changes (PDF) for specific details. For more information, please email Jennifer Van Thiel.
