On January 10 all students interested in taking a dual enrollment class were called in for an informational meeting during PREP. Students were given instructions for testing and registration for dual enrollment.

At the meeting students learned about the enrollment process at Frederick Community College, including how to register for their classes and pay for the courses. The process is a lot more complex than writing down a desired high school level course on a registration form.

In order to enroll in a dual enrollment course, students must first complete the Accuplacer. a test measuring a student’s knowledge of either English, mathematics, or both. The test is offered through Linganore or at FCC (if you miss the testing date or wish to test earlier). If you want to test at FCC, you must register first either online or on campus.

All Linganore students will take the Accuplacer on February 2nd and 3rd. Students must turn in the permission to test form by January 19th. See Mrs. Michelle Gilmore or Mrs. Kathy Becker, FCC Deans, if you have a question.

Dual enrollment offers Frederick Community College courses on a student’s home campus. Many classes are offered through this program such as Calculus 1, 2 and 3, English 101 and 102, and Psychology 101.

Since the courses are college level, the curriculum is built as such. Much of a student’s final grade depends on exams, and students are responsible for studying the material outside of school.

Dual enrollment also gives students the chance to earn college credit, which can transfer to any public university in Maryland.

Class of 2019 member, Mara Ruddy, said, “I decided to take a dual enrollment course because I wanted to take advantage of the opportunity to get college credit and to save money.”

If you are interested in taking a dual enrollment class, all the information is on the FCC website.
