12 A few things to consider…
College Calendar vs AHS Calendar FERPA and Personal Responsibility Add/Drop/Withdraw – AHS Deadlines Impact on graduation “C” or better rule College Calendar-Address Attendance (impact on grade) Personal Responsibility-course syllabus May not “withdraw” from more than 6 courses during their entire college career. It is tracked from institution to institution. Dual Credit students are in an exception category. It doesn’t start for them until they graduate.

13 ACCESS ACCESS is Accommodations at Collin County for Equal Support Services. Follows ADA guidelines by providing reasonable accommodations, individual attention, and support for students with disabilities who need assistance with any aspect of their campus experience such as accessibility, academics, testing, and registration.

14 I am ready to sign up for dual credit … what do I do now?

15 Start with your Dual Credit Coordinator in the AHS College/Career Center and your House Counselor! Discuss your schedule for next year, we would like to see students who have an A/B average and who are mature enough to handle college course work.

16 Checklist Admission: Submit an Application Official Transcript
Meningitis Vaccination Complete the TSI requirements Registration: Register with an Academic Advisor Pay for Courses & Books Please follow along with your packet

17 Application for Admission
WHEN do I apply? You may apply online for Spring 2013 now. There is no fee. How? Complete online with the Texas Common Application at Note the online application takes about 4 weeks to process…. Don’t do the online application in the morning and then expect us to have it in the afternoon…. if you need immediate processing you need to do the paper application. If you do not have a Social Security number please complete the paper application.

18 Transcript Collin needs the most recent transcript for every new dual credit student. It is used to meet testing requirements and set prerequisites. It can help prove residency and defines your status. You will want to wait until you TAKS scores are received….make sure you are on a list to send your transcript with the registrar!

19 Texas Success Initiative
The TSI is designed to measure competency in reading, writing, and mathematics. It is used for placement purposes. All students not eligible for an exemption must take an approved placement test prior to enrolling in any Texas public college or university. Texas Success Initiative If you are a rising junior you must take either ACT, SAT or TSI at Collin’s campus prior to registration. If you are a rising senior we will need either ACT, SAT, TSI or your Exit level TAKS scores prior to registration. See notes

20 TSI Exemptions TAKS- Exit Level 11th Grade 2200 Math Verbal 3
Writing SubScore ACT 19 23 Composite SAT I 500 1070 We will need PROOF of your scores either from the HS on your transcript OR from the testing source! I know you just recently took your TAKS test, so you have a choice you can wait for those scores or you can provide us with ACT/SAT. We should have your TAKS scores before Fall registration. PSAT does not count. If you want to take Math at Collin-everyone has to Math assess if they have not taken a college level math course yet.

21 TSI What will I need to do?
Get a testing referral from Admissions. Pay at the cashier; cost is $29. Make an appointment at the Testing Center at any of the three main campuses. Testing Referrals will be given during the admissions process or if you apply online you can come pick on up. You need to be testing at college level in reading and writing to take ANY courses for dual credit. If you have the exemption scores you do not need to test-unless you are taking Math. You may retest-you have to pay each time.

22 What if my TSI scores are low?
The purpose of this assessment is to find out what level you should start your coursework. If you do not place at “college level”, that means you need to focus on your high school work at this time. - This is NOT uncommon. If you place in to a developmental course at Collin as a dual credit student you are unable to take that course with us until you graduate from HS. The state of Texas considers that “double dipping” They fund the HS’s for this! Home school same thing…they feel you should be covering the developmental topics in your home school curriculum. You can take other things! You can always retest!

23 Register for Courses in the College and Career Center
Dual Credit students must register in person with a photo ID. You will need your completed permission form with the required signatures. Pay attention to AHS deadlines for add/drop and payment. Show Dual Credit Permission Form Happens after you do your TSI, does not require an appointment. As a dual credit student you must register in person…with a photo ID. As we talked about earlier, Juniors may take one course per semester and Seniors may take two. This is where you will provide us with your permission form.

30 What if my student cannot attend registration?
Parents may register for their student with a letter of release and a photo ID. The letter is only good for one day. Needs to include the student’s name, your name, the date, what you are going to do and the student’s signature (letter available in the AHS College and Career Center).
