High School Students

Flint Hills Technical College offers three easy ways for high school students to earn college credit:

Accelerate your future by enrolling in general education or FHTC technical credits at your high school. These classes are called Concurrent Enrollment Program (CEP), because you receive both high school and college credit. General Education courses are transferable. Both face to-face and online options may be available. Talk with your counselor to determine if your school is a participating partner.

Concurrent Enrollment Program

Concurrent Enrollment Partnership (CEP) programs—often referred to as "dual credit"—provide high school students the opportunity to take college credit-bearing courses in their high schools during the day, taught by college-approved high school teachers.

FHTC currently offer CEP courses at five area high schools: Emporia, Olpe, Hartford, Northern Heights, and Eureka. Our CEP program began in 2009 and has been growing steadily since then. In 2014, the College expanded the program to include not only general education courses, but technical education (CTE) offerings as well (Emporia only).

Senate Bill 155 funds the CTE courses, making them nearly free for high school students. The courses introduce students to programs of study here on campus and give them a head start on program completion, making them a wonderful potential recruiting tool as well.

Please visit your high school counselor for more information.

College Navigator is a free consumer information tool designed to help students, parents, high school counselors, and others get information about a variety of colleges. You can search for and compare colleges on all sorts of criteria including costs, majors offered, size of school, campus safety and graduation rates. College Navigator consists primarily of the latest data from the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS), the core postsecondary education data collection program for NCES - the National Center for Education Statistics.

This calculator is intended to provide estimated net price information (defined as estimated cost of attendance - including tuition and required fees, books and supplies, room and board (meals), and other related expenses — minus estimated grant and scholarship aid) to current and prospective students and their families based on what similar students paid in a previous year.

Job Placement Report

The Job Placement Report is the result of a one-year Follow-Up Study of program completers. Results of this annual survey are reported to the State of Kansas and compiled in the “Kansas Training Information Program” publication.
