Early College Scholars

Get a head start on your college career and take FLCC courses while in high school. Our Early College Scholars program invites juniors and seniors to complete courses with FLCC – on campus or online.

High School / Homeschool Students

Current high school students are encouraged to discover the benefits of a college education while still in school. With Early College Scholars, you take FLCC courses either online or at an FLCC campus location in Canandaigua, Victor, Newark, or Geneva. You'll learn from the expertise of FLCC instructors, get a taste of college life, and become acclimated to a campus setting with a variety of peers.

Students become Early College Scholars for a number of reasons:

  • To supplement high school programming.
  • To seek an alternative way to satisfy high school graduation requirements (with agreement from the school district).
  • To coordinate a time-shortened program. By combining FLCC courses in your high school with courses on an FLCC campus, you can earn an FLCC degree in less time after you graduate from high school.
  • To transfer earned credits to another college or university.

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.
