      • Dropping a concurrent credit course 2nd semester will result in a W or F on a college transcript and Fast Forward funding frozen.

       

         4 Steps:

      • Parent completes the Fast Forward participation form electronically in Parent PowerSchool account
      • Create an account in Fast Forward Portal / Verify account through email
      • Request Funding for EACH concurrent credit course
      • Complete university course registration

       

      *Taking a concurrent credit class is a commitment that means the grade you get in the class is the final grade on a college transcript. If you are not strong in the subject content or concerned about your ability to handle the rigor, talk to your teacher, parents, and career counselor before you register. Using Fast Forward funds and failing (or withdrawing mid-year) means a freeze on future use of Fast Forward funds.
