I am enrolled in the program, but don't know how to log in to any of my accounts. How do I find this information?
Go to WebAdvisor and select, “I’m new to WebAdvisor.” Follow the steps to determine your User ID and password in order to access important information such as your schedule, grades, and unofficial transcript.
Your login information can also be used for Blackboard, which you will use to receive assignments from your instructors, complete class tasks, and keep track of your grades. You will not be able to access your courses until the first day of class.
To access your student email account you will sign in with your given username (same as Blackboard and WebAdvisor) and your password will initially be your 8 digit Date of Birth MMDDYYYY, once you enter this information you will be promoted to create your password. This is the only account your instructors will use to contact you; be sure to check it regularly.
What do I need to know about graduation?
Students who complete a full Career & Technical Education certificate pathway will be invited to attend FTCC’s graduation ceremony. High School Connections staff will visit your classes well in advance of the ceremony to distribute information and collect graduation paperwork. It is the student’s responsibility to fill out the graduation application and turn it into the HSC office.
Students graduating with an Associate’s Degree will need to submit their final official high school transcript and can participate in the spring graduation ceremony, but will be considered a summer graduate.
High School students will wear their high school cap and gown for the graduation ceremony.
Certificates will be mailed to qualifying students at the end of the summer.
How do I get a copy of my FTCC transcript?
Unofficial copies of your transcript can be printed from your WebAdvisor account, but it will not be available until you have completed your first semester of High School Connections. In this case, we recommend printing a copy of your schedule.
For an official copy, please see Transcript Request.
My PACT/PSAT/ACT/SAT scores are not high enough for the courses I want to take. Now what?
You can take FTCC’s placement exam (the North Carolina Diagnostic Assessment and Placement exam, or NC DAP) to obtain qualifying scores for High School Connections courses.
To test, please first complete an admissions application. Once completed, notify Chris Callagy at email@example.com that you have completed the application. You can come take the placement test the next business day.
Testing is offered Monday – Thursday on a walk-in basis between the hours of 8:30 AM and 1:30 PM, and Fridays at 8:30 AM.
Come to the High School Connections office, room 128 in the Tony Rand Student Center, thirty minutes before your desired testing time.
I am planning on attending a college or university after I graduate. How do I know if my classes will transfer there?
If your institution is part of the UNC system, all of our College Transfer courses are guaranteed to transfer seamlessly as part of the Universal General Education Transfer Component (UGETC) initiative, as long as you earned a grade of ‘C’ or better. Career & Technical Education courses will be evaluated by the receiving institution to determine what credit may be awarded.
You can take the FTCC’s placement exam (Reinforced Instructions for Student Excellence or RISE assessment) to obtain qualifying scores for High School Connections courses. This test can only be taken twice with in a 10 year time frame.
