Parents/Guardians and Students

Congratulations on your decision to accept the challenge of taking a college course(s) while in high school. This opportunity is not for every student - your academic performance and willingness to go "above and beyond" has prepared you for this next step in your academic career. You will experience the pace, rigor, and personal responsibility that are crucial to success in college. 

Eligibility

Qualified students are primarily juniors and seniors. Students must also meet the same college standards as on-campus students.

Costs

$20 per class, per semester - regardless of how many credits a course is or if it is year-long or semester-long. This fee is non-refundable and needs to be submitted with the application and parent consent form at the beginning of the semester.

The Courses

Connect2College courses are taught by approved high school instructors who are interviewed by QCC department chairs. The department chair and instructor discuss the course in great detail to ensure that the course offered in the high school is consistent with those offered on campus. Students must meet the same college standards as on-campus students.

Registration

During course selection, students tell their teacher, guidance counselor or program liaision which course(s) they are interested in pursuing. The teachers, guidance counselor or liaision will explain whether or not students are eligible for each course based on pre-requisites or Regents scores.

Parent Consent Form

Students will receive paperwork from their teacher, guidance counselor or program liaision in order to enroll in C2C. The Parent Consent form is required each semester a student is enrolled in the program. If a student's class is yearlong, only one form is required.

Other Required Information

Students will need to enter their OSIS number (NYC students) and Social Security number when registering for the program. Students who attend high school outside of NYC will need their NYSSIS number because CUNY requires two identification numbers for high school students.

Course Withdrawal

Students who are considering either dropping or withdrawing from a class should always consult with their teacher, guidance counselor or program liaision. If students wish to formally withdraw from any courses, there are important dates to consider. Please note that the withdrawal process begins with a student request to either the course teacher or guidance counselor/program liaision. Students may withdrawal from a single course up to and through 66% of individual class meetings for the fall and spring semesters and receive a “W” grade.  All program teachers and guidance counselors are aware of the withdrawal dates. Failure to properly withdraw from a course will result in the student receiving the grade he or she earned in the course. Students who no longer attend class, quit school, or move out of the school district also need to be withdrawn from their QCC Connect2College courses.

Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)

Connect2College students are included in the QCC's Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) policy. Under the FERPA policy, students have a right to expect that information in their education records will be kept confidential and will be disclosed only with their permission or under provisions of the law. For purposes of FERPA, QCC considers all students independent (regardless of their age). Education records (including course grades) will not be provided to parents without the prior written consent of the student.

Transferring Credits

Connect2College students have the option of continuing their education at QCC (recommended!) or transferring their credits to another institution. 

Requesting a Transcript

A transcript is a written record of a student’s grades. Once enrolled in a Connect2College course, an official college transcript will be generated and every course and grade that is earned will be recorded. Transcripts are updated at the completion of every semester. However, it may take up to 10 days for a course to appear on a transcript. Students can follow the instructions on how to order their transcript by visiting this page:
