Concurrent Classes *
Cedar Falls High School offers several “concurrent” classes. Because of a partnership with Hawkeye Community College, students may enroll in college-level courses taught during the regular school day. Upon successful completion of the course, students will earn both high school and college credit. Students are responsible for verification of credit acceptance at the post-secondary institution they attend. The website www.transferiniowa.org may be a helpful resource in determining transfer credits at the three Iowa Regents Universities and the Community Colleges. Students are also responsible for contacting Hawkeye Community College at 319-296-4045 to send the transcript to the post-secondary institution. Students will need to meet prerequisites of ACT and/or COMPASS score to enroll in these courses. See course descriptions for prerequisites.

Postsecondary Enrollment Options Act
By an act of the Iowa legislature, students may enroll in courses at a postsecondary institution. Funds for this enrollment will be provided by the local school district, provided that the student meets the admissions requirements of that postsecondary institution and that the course(s) taken are not offered by the local school district. Only full-time students of junior or senior status are eligible. STUDENTS MUST NOTIFY THEIR SCHOOL COUNSELOR NO LATER THAN SPRING BREAK OF THE YEAR PRIOR TO THE ACADEMIC YEAR THEY INTEND TO ENROLL IN A POSTSECONDARY COURSE. Further information about application guidelines and procedures may be obtained from the school counselors. Please see the CFHS Counseling Website at PSEO/Senior Year Plus for more information.
