Will these classes transfer to other universities?
Yes! These classes will be able to transfer to most any university in the country since Freed Hardeman is an accredited college. *There are very few schools that will not accept dual enrollment classes from anywhere. It is the student's responsibility to look up their intended school and verify that they accept dual enrollment courses.
Will the class be similar in difficulty to an AP or Honors high school class?
The course you will take as an Online Dual Enrollment Student is not a high school course. It is the same course with the same rigor that is offered to a full-time college student.
Is there support for me if I am having trouble with any of the programs that I will need to be successful while taking a course?
Yes, staff will be available for you to contact during the day between 8:00am and 5:00pm CST at 731-989-6111. You can also submit a HelpDesk ticket at helpdesk.fhu.edu.
How do I pay my tuition?
You can send a payment in with your statement, or you may pay online at fhu.afford.com
Will students be required to buy books?
Students might be required to buy a book depending on which class they take. They can purchase books online from fhubookstore.com or any outside provider. These books can be online versions or hard copies, depending on the student's preference and the nature of the book.
How do I get in contact with my professors?
When you receive your syllabus, your professor will let you know the preferred method(s) and time to make contact.
Who can proctor a test for me?
We suggest that you contact a minister or your school district guidance counselor to make arrangements to have the exams administered. If you are close to FHU's campus, you may make arrangements with the Testing Center by contacting Nathalie Brumback, firstname.lastname@example.org or call 731-989-6176. Someone, other than a family member, must proctor your exams.
Is tutoring available?
Yes! Your syllabus will list the tutoring times for your classes.
What kind of computer do I need, and how do I need to equip it?
Follow this link and it will take you to our webpage that will give you a complete breakdown of what computer systems you will need to succeed: http://www.fhu.edu/tutorials/student.
Will I be required to come to campus?
You don’t have to come to campus, but visiting your campus for certain events will help you to qualify for a scholarship to FHU! We also can help you be successful as an online student.
Are there discounts that can be applied to the tuition for the courses?
If you are a resident of Tennessee, you may qualify for the Dual Enrollment Grant. We offer the course at such a low cost that other discounts, which might apply for you as a full-time student, will not be applicable for the tuition of an Online Dual Enrollment course.
Will dual enrollment affect a student being a "freshman" and receiving freshman scholarships when they enter college?
Depending on the school. FHU will allow students to bring in an unlimited amount of dual enrollment hours and still give First Time students their Freshman Scholarship. However, all universities have their own policy about this, and it is the student's responsibility to look at their intended school to see about their dual enrollment policies. The Dual Enrollment Grant is different from the HOPE scholarship, but after students take 12 hours of dual enrollment the Dual Enrollment Grant will pull from the HOPE scholarship on a dollar-by-dollar basis. This will prorate a student's first semester at any TN college or university. The Grant will not otherwise affect a student's HOPE scholarship after their first semester, and therefore will not substantially make a difference for the student's HOPE scholarship over their college career.
All dual enrollment students will attend an orientation event with the Dual Enrollment Coordinator from FHU. At Orientation, students will get details on their classes, books, and other "what to expect" items for the semester. Students will also be given guidance on how to get acquainted with their FHU email and online learning system. FHU will hold an Orientation event each semester for new dual enrollment students and their parents. Please contact the Dual Enrollment Coordinator at 731-989-6225 or email@example.com for the date, location, and time of your program’s Orientation Event.
