Who can see your viewing activity?
Haha! I am eating dinner.
Brendon Tindall is on line
if i am currently taking dual enrollment is this applicable for me to attend?
Henry - Yes! Especially if you are looking to take multiple in the next two years.
Yes - especially since you will be a junior next year - and there will be a larger variety of DE courses open to you.
Welcome SDV 100 students! It’s great to see you here!
As an NVCC teacher I can say we love our dual enroll kids!
So nice to know! Thanks, Michelle!
What is the DE placement test and how do you take it?
@Mila - Ms. Nearman will cover this in a few minutes. Great question!
If you are going to collage in a different sate or country does it transfer to most schools?
my kid is in 3 De classes right now, do I need to be here?
@Maya - It depends. It’s never too early to check in with some of the schools that interest you. Many general education courses tend to transfer well (ex: ENG 111).
can you send this powerpoint out to attendees after the session?
Yes, I certainly will be sending this out to all of our ACC families.
Did Ms. Nearman say that DE classes come with the GPA point bump?
@Hildie Yes we would recommend it for any prospective or current student. After this overview, we will be hearing from DE teachers and students that we think will be very helpful as students prepare to make course selection for next year this week.
@Gaya Yes, AP and DE classes both get the extra quality point in the APS GPA.
@Gaya - yes.
Since 10th graders couldn't take the PSAT this year, will eligibility be based on GPA for next year?
Ms. Nearman will cover this in a few minutes; great question!
Where can we find a list of contract classes taught at APS?
@Annie, the program of studies online has all the courses available at APS. Please be mindful that course offerings are contingent on course selection and teacher availability.
Here is the APS program of studies for 2021-2022: https://www.apsva.us/wp-content/uploads/2021/02/HS-PROGRAM-OF-STUDIES-2021-22.pdf
if you have an associates through DE are you still considered a freshmen for housing, counseling and scholarships?
Great question, Henry! In most cases, yes. The schools like to form a community of new freshmen.
Will the recording of this session be posted somewhere?
Yes. I believe that Mr. Villafane will post it.
@GDowling. Once we have the recording we will send it out via email and will be posting instructions on where to access it on ACC’s website
If you don't come back March 16th I heard you cant get your DE college credits, is this true?
@Aidan - this is only the case for students taking Auto Tech and EMS 120 (hands-on part of EMT).
can you switch to Presentation mode so the slides are easier to see?
Sorry! The slides are finished :)
How does DE English 11 prepare you for DE English 12? And how do we prepare to DE English 11?
DE ENG 111 focuses a lot on the writing skills that you will need in DE Lit - and in MANY other college courses.
DE English 11 is Composition (NOVA 111/112) — so a lot of writing and rhetorical analysis. DE English 12 is Literature (NOVA ENG 255/245) so more reading and using those skills to analyze specific texts. :-)
Ok! Is there anything I can do to prepare for the DE English class?
@Maya - love the excitement! be sure to let your English 10 teacher know that you are interested in DE so that she can support you and your writing skill development for the rest of the year
Dr. Van Lare does a great job preparing students when we have a full school year! :-)
And Ms. Magro is SUCH A GREAT HELP with SDV 100!
I’m doing my National Honor Society DE Committee dance. You guys ROCK!
@Leask I am taking that class this year
I’ll share my planner stickers with you! :-)
Excellent presentation, Carole!
Thank you Carole!!!! Great advice :)
This was very informative, I love all the input. :)
Is there a maximum # of DE credits students can take, either per year or total?
or a maximum # of credits that transfer to other VA schools?
Can you explain how it's determined whether a rising sophomore qualifies for a dual enrollment class?
Can you clarify how we seek exemption for sophomores? The slide mentioned a Sophomore Exception Packet. Where do we get that?
A full college load is 15 credits. The max college load is 18 credits per semester
do credits transfer to any schools outside of Virginia?
Yes they can
They don’t, it depends on the chool
Are students able to drop DE courses if its not a good fit for them?
Many do - but it’s never too early to reach out to some of your schools of choice to check on their policies. General education courses like ENG 111 usually transfer well.
@Ana - yes
other than math, are there any DE for 10th graders?
Some CTE courses are available for sophomores. We currently have 10th graders taking Auto Tech, Web Design and Early Childhood I - for example.
I am taking DE Web design 1 and 2!
Just to clarify. Students apply for the DE program through NOVA and the counseling team can assist?
@Heather - Yes, there are CTE electives and also Spanish (if students complete level 4).
Students apply to NOVA and then create an account to request the DE course online - https://nvcc.dualenroll.com/login
Amy Nearman - email@example.com
Awesome counselors and team!
What is the deadline for DE next year?
GREAT presentation -- thank you all!
Very helpful -- thanks!
where can we find the full list of DE courses? thank you!
