Earlybird classes are concurrent enrollment classes that are offered at the area high schools. The courses are taught at area high schools by high school instructors who have been certified by Iowa Central Community College. Each high school determines which classes will be offered each semester, upon approval by the college.
Students enroll with their instructor or counselor during the first few days of each class by completing the online Earlybird Registration Application (see link above). Students wanting to enroll in English or math courses are required to meet Iowa Central’s minimum qualifications on a mandatory assessment test in order to enroll in these courses.
There is no cost to the student for the course, even if the student should withdraw or fail the course. The school is billed for each course and the school is required to purchase the books.
Students who are eligible or who are currently receiving high school accommodations for their high school classes may request college accommodations for their concurrent enrollment classes. Accommodations will not be provided in a concurrent enrollment course unless a student requests services through the Iowa Central Community College Accommodations Office. If you wish to request college accommodations please click on this link: http://www.iowacentral.edu/ARC/accommodations.asp
Earlybird students are expected to follow Iowa Central's policies and guidelines, which can be found in the Handbook for High School Students Enrolled in College Courses.
