 College Courses
 
Beginning November 2009, all students taking college courses must be proficient in the Math, Reading, and Science areas of their ITEDS. Even if they are proficient in all three areas, they still must meet the ACT or COMPASS requirements.
 
Spring Semester 2015
*PSEO course forms are now available for students to complete. They can be picked up in the guidance office.
*Students must now register for Contracted/Concurrent courses online. They can pick up a form in the guidance office that details how to do this.
 
*Students must meet the COMPASS or ACT requirements before they will be registered for a college course.
 
*The deadline for registering for PSEO courses is Wednesday, November 26th. COMPASS or ACT scores MUST be met BEFORE this date to be registered. All forms should be turned in to Mrs. Bauer NO LATER THAN Wednesday, November 26th.
 
*The deadline for registering for Contracted courses is Wednesday, November 26th. Students must meet the COMPASS or ACT scores by this date to be registered. However, students are encouraged to register and meet the scores before this date as classes do fill up and students who wait until the deadline may not be able to get in. Students will register for these courses online and must do so before the November 26th deadline date.
 
*Students are responsible for checking with Mrs. Bauer to make sure the classes they want to take fit into their daily schedule.
 
*Students are responsible for checking with their selected college to make sure the classes they want to take will transfer to that specific college. If they need help doing this, they should stop in the guidance office.

*Students enrolling in college courses need to be aware of the drop deadlines. Those wishing to drop a course need to follow the appropriate drop requirements by the deadline dates set by Hawkeye Community College.
 
*For more information and for class lists and hours, look at the PSEO and Contracted Course sections of my website.
