The Idaho State Department of Education's Fast Forward Program is designed to help cover the costs associated with dual credit courses or college-bearing/professional-technical exams. The program provides every student attending an Idaho public school an allocation of $4,125 to use towards Advanced Opportunities in grades 7-12. To utilize program funds, students must register through the Advanced Opportunities Application Portal.
If a student fails to earn credit for a course paid for by Fast Forward, the student must subsequently pay for a “like” course on their own before he/she is eligible for further Fast Forward funding. Fast Forward funds may not be used for repeated or remedial course work.
For more information, visit the Idaho State Department of Education's Advanced Opportunities.
Dual Credit students do not qualify for financial aid. To qualify for federal grants and loans, the federal government requires students to have received a high school diploma or its equivalent.
In addition, federal law requires that students must be making Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) toward a degree to be eligible to receive federal financial aid funds. These standards apply to all periods of attendance, even periods when a student did not receive financial aid.
Therefore, because they are recorded on the college transcript, grades earned for college courses taken while in high school can impact a student's future financial aid.
Follow the payment deadlines for Dual Credit courses taken at all participating high schools.
If fees are not paid in full by the payment deadline, the student will be dropped from all classes. In order to be reinstated, students will need to petition and pay a $100 late registration fee plus any other applicable fees.
Make checks payable to LCSC.
