If you’re currently in a high school or homeschool program and want to supplement your education with an on-campus course, FLCC’s Early College Scholars program may be for you. This program is perfect for students who want to get a head start on their college career by completing courses at any FLCC campus location - including our main campus in Canandaigua and our campus center locations in Victor, Newark and Geneva. There are also opportunities to apply for a scholarship to help offset the cost of tuition.
FLCC may offer course sections dedicated to homeschool students. These course sections allow students to get acclimated to a campus setting by participating in courses with their academic peers. Homeschool students are also welcome to participate in other non-dedicated course sections. Contact us for details.
High School Students
There are a few different ways to take classes, and the option you pursue will depend on your educational goals. Perhaps you are looking at ways to supplement your high school programming or seeking an alternative way to satisfy high school graduation requirements (based on specific agreement with school district).
If you intend to pursue a degree at FLCC after high school graduation, you may be interested in a coordinated time-shortened program where students are participating in FLCC courses in the high school in addition to on-campus courses. Upon high school graduation, you may be able matriculate to FLCC with sophomore status.
Students Under the Age of 16
Requests from individuals under the age of 16 to enroll in coursework at FLCC will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis by the Office of Concurrent Enrollment. Permission will be granted based on the student's academic preparedness for college-level work, completion of course prerequisites, and age appropriateness of course material. Students under the age of 16 are permitted to register for a maximum of 7 credits per semester. If permission is granted, the student would be permitted to enroll as a non-matriculated student only (i.e. non-degree seeking student).
New students under the age of 16 must meet with a staff member from the Office of Concurrent Enrollment to discuss their educational goals and course selection. Continued participation or subsequent enrollment will be evaluated on a semester basis based upon academic performance.
Early College Scholars may apply for scholarship funding to offset the tuition expenses. The scholarship award is based on FLCC’s part-time tuition rate for the academic year. The scholarship funds up to 50% of the student’s tuition for up to seven credits each semester at any FLCC campus. View Details
