Frequently Asked Questions

GENERAL

CECFC offers a one-time laptop reimbursement to support student success in college coursework. Full-time students are eligible for 50% up to $250. Part-time students are eligible for 50% up to $125. Items eligible for reimbursement are a laptop or tablet (new or used; PC or Mac) and a case. 

For example:

  •    $200 laptop, including case purchase = $100 reimbursement
  •    $500 laptop, including case purchase = $250 reimbursement.
  • $1,000 laptop, including case purchase = $250 reimbursement


A student is eligible for a laptop reimbursement when they are enrolled in or have passed either ENG121 or MAT121 or above. The student must have funds remaining in his/her voucher in order to be reimbursed.  A parent may choose to purchase a laptop early and submit the receipt during the semester the student qualifies. Approved reimbursement funds will first be applied to any outstanding fees on the student's CECFC account. Any remaining balance will be provided in the format requested on the application. 

 

The deadline for submitting laptop reimbursement requests for the Spring semester is April 3, 2020.

Off-campus class add/drop/withdrawals are the responsibility of the student through the college portals AND students must notify their advisor if a change to their off-campus classes has been made by submitting a new copy of their schedule.

If you failed a course this past semester at either CECFC, FRCC, or Aims, please be aware of the following:
  • You should discuss your failing grade directly with your professor/instructor via email. (Parents, often teachers leave very detailed notes in Infinite Campus. Please check there first and also review the course syllabus with your student. Then, email the teacher.  If you still have concerns after discussing the situation with the instructor, you can direct those to Mrs. Hocke, Dean of Academics, via email.)
  • You will be billed for failed college courses by our Business Manager. Bills will be sent out 4-6 weeks after the end of the semester. Payment arrangements may be made with the Business Manager.
  • Your graduation plans may be affected by your failing grade. Please take a moment to look at your ICAP packet from our last meeting to see what your options are.
  • Your next semester courses will likely need adjusted. Your advisor can help you with this the first week of class. Many classes will be full and your choices will be limited. Please take a minute to review your options by looking at your ICAP packet and then contact your advisor
  • You can learn from this experience. Take some time over break to think about what you can do differently next semester to be successful in your classes.
We are happy to meet with you in person once classes begin. You can schedule a time. Then, take a deep breath (parents too!), realize that this is just a bump in the road, and enjoy your break!
College Level Examination Placement (CLEP) is a test that many colleges use to grant college credit for competency. There are many tests available. CECFC will reimburse for passed CLEP exams if you have funds remaining in your voucher accounts. Please look at the tests available at clep.collegeboard.com and also compare that with the credit FRCC grants for those tests.
 

Deciding which CLEP test to take

  • Select a subject that you feel you can grasp easily and that you have some prior coursework in.
  • Check to see what college class will be granted for a passing score on a specific test.
  • Check your degree plan to make sure that class will fulfill a requirement for your AA/AS.

 

Studying for CLEP

  • Print the CLEP Study Guide for your subject.
  • Purchase a CLEP study book or check one out from the library.
  • Buy a used copy of one of the textbooks listed on the CLEP study guide for your subject
  • Search for quizlet decks to help you study. (Use CLEP or AP and the subject in your search- the content is similar. Quizlet has a great app so you can always have this available to review during 'downtime'- waiting in line, etc.)
  • Study. There are no shortcuts to this process. Put in the time.

 

Taking the CLEP

  • Call the testing center at FRCC or Aims to find out when they are open and which tests they offer.
  • Schedule a time to take the test.
  • Send your scores to FRCC.
  • Email me your advisor your score.
