Mr. Fobert will show this later, but here is the link to the website with all the info you need about taking a college course while enrolled at MHHS (again, this is for courses outside the MHHS Early College program) https://mhhs.lammersvilleschooldistrict.net/apps/pages/index.jsp?uREC_ID=1260238&type=d&pREC_ID=1481110

A dual enrollment course is not something offered at MHHS. To answer the question, dual enrollment is when a student takes a college class taught on the high school campus. Due to our proximity to MH Delta College, if student want to take a college class, they can take it directly with the college.

USC is a private school, so we recommend you reach out to them directly to find out how they calculate grades earned in the freshman year.

If students are interested in the Early College pathway, the window to enroll is at the end of 8th grade year. Since it is a 4-year pathway, students can only join before their 9th grade year. Students tale 2 courses each semester in the MHHS Early College program. Students not in the MHHS Early College program can still take community college courses. They need to be approved prior to taking the course as students need the high school's permission to take a class at the community college while in high school. You can find more information on our website here about this: https://mhhs.lammersvilleschooldistrict.net/apps/pages/index.jsp?uREC_ID=1260238&type=d&pREC_ID=1481110

There is a question about how community college courses show on the high school transcript. Not all courses taken at the community college will go on the high school transcript. There is a list on our website here that will outline which courses will show on the high school transcript: https://mhhs.lammersvilleschooldistrict.net/apps/pages/index.jsp?uREC_ID=1260238&type=d&pREC_ID=1481110

If the community college course is able to be put on the high school transcript, is shows as an outside course that was taken at the college. It is basically listed as a transfer course taken at the college
joni

There is a question about the difference between dual and early college enrollment. In general, early college credit is any class students take at the community college and take concurrently while in high school. This is outside our Early College program as any high school student can take a class at the community college
joni

The other main difference between IGETC and the associate's degree is that the students earn a degree with the associates

I have a question about if a child was approved for the Early College program if there is anything else that needs to be done. If your child is already in 9th grade or higher and has started the early college program, then your student is already in the program. They just need to follow the directions for their meetings and signing up for classes. And they need to keep their MHHS and college GPA above 3.0
joni
01:00:34
If your student is in 8th grade and you were notified that they meet the minimum MAP score requirement, you will need to attend the 2/23/21 Early College pathway meeting as there is paperwork to complete to sign up for the early college pathway

Colleges are interested in students who show a passion by completing a pathway. It isn't as important which pathway they follow. Some people believe that the biomed or engineering pathway carry a heavier weight, however, colleges want to see/know that students pursued a passion, whatever the passion is. It is important students write about their passion in their college entrance essays and that their transcript shows that what they write in their essay is true

For UC vs. USC, the UC system acknowledges the student takes classes in their freshman year, however, they do not count freshman classes in their GPA calculation. For more information about how UC calculates GPA, you can find that here: https://admission.universityofcalifornia.edu/admission-requirements/freshman-requirements/gpa-requirement.html

For the UC admission requirements, some classes are required to be completed in the freshman year. So the classes count as far as completing the classes, but the grades do not calculate in the UC GPA
