What is the University in the High School Program?
The University in the High School program enables qualified high school juniors and seniors to earn college credit for approved courses offered in the high school. Students who register with Farmingdale State College and successfully complete the course will be eligible to earn undergraduate college credits. Credits will be recorded on an official Farmingdale transcript and can either be used to pursue a degree at Farmingdale or a transcript can be sent to any other college the student wishes to attend.
Why Does Farmingdale Offer this Program?
Farmingdale helps bridge the gap between high school and college level study. By providing the University in the High School program to high school students, we allow students to take college level course work while attending high school. By exposing the students to this level of work and allowing students the opportunity to take advantage of the Farmingdale campus library and other resources, Farmingdale aspires to motivate students to continue college level work after graduation from high school.
Will Other Colleges Accept These Credits?
Upon successful completion of a course, a student may request a transcript from Farmingdale. Acceptance by other SUNY schools is typical. While no guarantee can be offered for all American colleges and universities, we have found that such credits earned with a grade of C or better are accepted by a broad range of public and private institutions.
What Does it Cost to Enroll?
The fee is $140.00 per course. If you are a student enrolled in the free or reduced lunch program, you are eligible for reduced tuition at the rate of $70.00 per course. Confirmation of eligibility is required from your guidance counselor, school nurse or other school administrator.
How Do I Sign Up?
Read, complete and sign the registration and parental consent forms handed out by either a Farmingdale State College representative during a class visit or from your high school teacher in which you are enrolled in the course with. Return them to your high school teacher with a check or money order payable to Farmingdale State College (cash is not accepted). Please be sure to include the student’s full name on the front of the check or money order.
What If I Change My Mind?
Registration for University in the High School courses is handled in accordance with SUNY policies. Once you submit the registration form and proper payment, you are enrolled in the course, and are responsible for the registration fee. If, for any reason, you want or need to drop the University in the High School course (whether or not you continue to participate in the high school level course) you must tell us in writing. The following financial liability schedule will apply:
Date Written Request is Postmarked
Your Financial Liability Will Be:
Your Grade Will Be:
During first three weeks of semester
After first three weeks of semester
100% of program fee
W – (Withdrawn)
Also in accordance with University policies, outstanding financial liability to the University results in a hold being placed on student records. This means that future registrations are not permitted and transcript requests will not be honored until the liability has been satisfied.
How Do I Receive My Grades?
The College does not automatically mail grade reports at the end of the term. The high school instructor will advise the student of his/her grade. You can also log on to: http:\\www.farmingdale.edu, click on “Current Students” along the top bar, select the link “Review Grades” and follow the instructions.
You may also request a transcript. Transcripts may be accessed from the website as well. Select “Quick Links” from the top sidebar, scroll down the menu to “Registrar’s Office”, click on “Transcript Information” and follow the instructions there.
How Do I Have Grades Sent to My College?
If you attend Farmingdale after high school, your grades are already there; just tell your advisor at your first registration meeting. If you attend another college, you must send an official transcript from the college. Your high school transcript will not be sufficient. Transcripts may be accessed from the Farmingdale website.
