Forsyth Tech Dual Enrollment

The NCLA is in partnership with FTCC, through College and Career Promise (CCP), to offer dual enrollment courses. Juniors and seniors who qualify through GPA (3.0 weighted or higher) and Accuplacer testing are eligible to take courses at FTCC that will count for both high school and college credit. Courses are pre-selected and offered at the Swisher center in Kernersville for our students.

Beginning with Fall 2020, new rules are in place to include the following: Students can qualify for courses at FTCC with a 2.8 GPA and no placement test. However, the NCLA reserves the right to limit the course selections for students to courses that are electives and not essential for meeting graduation requirements.

Important things to keep in mind if you choose to take FTCC dual enrollment courses:

  • You will need to purchase your own books and parking permit. There are also student fees that you must pay. The tuition is free.
  • Only you will know your academic progress throughout the semester. Parents will not be able to communicate with the professors regarding student progress or late assignments. The NCLA will receive a final grade for each student only!
  • Students can, but should not, drop a course at FTCC on their own without notifying Ms. Hilliard first. The proper procedure for dropping or adding a course is to come see Ms. Hilliard first and then The NCLA will communicate that with FTCC. The NCLA can not be held responsible when students do not show up for classes at FTCC or when they choose to drop without letting us know.
  • These grades will be a part of your permanent academic record both on your high school transcript as well as your college transcript.
  • FTCC and The NCLA do not share the same calendar. Here is a link to their academic calendar.
  • You are responsible for paying your fees on time to FTCC or you will be dropped from the class. Keep a close eye on all dates.
  • As soon as you test, you must bring a copy of your test scores to Ms. Hilliard. Without test scores, you will not be registered for classes.
  • You must turn in all completed application forms to Ms. Hilliard. She will submit them as a group to FTCC.
  • The following is a list of classes that we typically request from FTCC and the number of college credits they earn upon successful completion. Not all classes will be offered every semester. Ms. Hilliard will work with each student individually to make sure the appropriate FTCC courses are selected for their needs. If we do not have enough NCLA students request a class, there is a good chance the class will not "make" and none of our students will be able to take it.
