IOWA CENTRAL COMMUNITY COLLEGE (ICCC)

The Post-Secondary Enrollment Options Act allows students to enroll part time at an eligible community college, State University, or private college or university.  The purpose of this Act by Iowa Legislature is to promote rigorous educational pursuits and provide a wide variety of options for students.

Concurrent classes are college courses offered at FDSH.  Students receive one high school credit and assigned college semester hours of credit upon successful completion. The Fort Dodge Community School District provides the instructor.  To enroll in Concurrent courses, indicate which course(s) you wish to take on your registration card, and see your school counselor to discuss what prerequisites must be completed at Fort Dodge Senior High before enrolling and how they work into your high school requirements and future plans.  Complete and return the appropriate forms to your counselor.  A student will earn one high school credit per semester and college credit according to semester hours.

Post-Secondary Enrollment Options are college courses students attend at Iowa Central Community College or online college courses. The Fort Dodge Senior High highly encourages students to take challenging courses, including AP and College level. Taking high level courses prepares students for the next level of learning. These courses also allow students deeper and more career exploration. While taking college level courses in high school, students can lighten their college load or add additional courses of interest at the college level. The intention is to prepare students for a successful life after high school; not earn a degree. When discussing with universities and industry, we have found students are best prepared when they enroll in no more than 30 college credits while still in high school. This balance also allows students the enjoyment of high school. Utilize your school counselor in deciding which college and AP courses are most appropriate for you and your future. Discuss which post-secondary course(s) you intend to take, what prerequisites must be completed at Fort Dodge Senior High before enrolling, and how they fit into your high school requirements and future plans with your school counselor.  Complete and return all appropriate forms, including the blue “Notification of Student Interest/Enrollment” form, to your school counselor by May 15, 2020. All course requests must be submitted by the end of the school year prior for guaranteed placement. The student/parent(s) is responsible for providing transportation to and from the college. The student will earn high school credit based on a weighted scale and college credit according to semester hours.

Upon graduation, students who have taken Concurrent or Post-secondary college courses, and plan to attend another college/university need to check with that institution to determine how college credit will apply.  Students will need to have Iowa Central Community College send a transcript to the college/university of your choice.
