Academic Course Offerings

Opportunities for Concurrent Enrollment

Students wishing to enroll concurrently in college classes may do so, providing they meet regular high school graduation requirements during the normal year.

Online or on-site classes are available through Flint Hills Technical College, Emporia State University, Allen Community College and other schools. Students who take a college course and want dual credit must talk with their counselor and should verify transferability of the credit to the post-secondary institutions. Students are required to pay the tuition for the college course to the post-secondary institution.

The following credit classes are available through FHTC. The minimum ACT score required is listed, if applicable.
