Discuss the College Before Graduation Program with your parent/guardian. Meet with your counselor to determine if the course you want to take will work with your high school schedule. Check the course catalog to know if the course you are interested in requires any prerequisites. You can not take a course unless you have met those prerequisites. It is also advised to meet with a college advisor to align your courses with your career plans. If you are not sure which courses to take, reach out to FRCC for more direction on career pathways.
GT Pathways courses, in which the student earns a C- or higher, will always transfer and apply to GT Pathways requirements in AA, AS and most bachelor's degrees at every public Colorado college and university.
For more information about FRCC college programs for high school students: click here.
Step 1: Apply to FRCC
After you submit the application, FRCC will assign you a 'Student ID 'S' Number (S00000000). You will use this number to sign up for classes so write it down or keep a copy. It may take a few days to get so check your email. Make sure you sign up for COF (Colorado Opportunity Fund) when enrolling.
If there is a hold on your account, please email FRCC to get it removed.
Step 2: Complete Request Form
Complete the 'College Before Graduation (CBG) Request Form' for the semester you are requesting. This needs to be completed every semester. You must have your 'S' number from FRCC to complete this form.
Step 3: Complete CBG Agreement
Complete the 'College Before Graduation (CBG) Agreement' which must be signed by you, your parent/guardian, and your high school counselor. This needs to be completed every semester.
Step 4: District Approval
When you are approved, you will receive an email from the District letting you know that you have been approved and what are the required next steps. Please email us if you are close to the deadline to apply and have not received an email.
Step 5: Register for Classes
After you have received your FRCC 'S' number or student ID, you are ready to register for classes. Go online to your student eWOLF account (FRCC website link at the top left corner). Click here for video instructions. Pay attention to register deadlines!
- Check your college issued email account in eWolf, this is where you will communicate with your instructors
- Check your syllabus for course materials and expectations.
Note: If your course is on the high school campus, FRCC will register you. If your course is on the FRCC campus or online, you are responsible for registering for classes. If you are taking a course after school or during the summer at a BVSD campus, you are responsible for registering for classes and you will be emailed a unique CRN to complete registration.
Review the checklist and make sure you have completed all of the paperwork. You are responsible for working with the college, registering for the approved course(s), and paying the appropriate tuition and/or fees.
- Login to D2L on the first day of class, regardless when your class starts
- Remember to check your FRCC email frequently (found in eWolf)
- The course syllabus that the teacher provides lists all of the reading and course assignments. Check the syllabus daily to stay on top of what needs to be done. Also, when the class is finished, save the syllabus in an electronic file - you may need it when transferring the credit to a university!
NOTE: We will be updating this list with more details soon.
