CECFC Westminster College Direct Option

Westminster Logo

At Colorado Early Colleges Fort Collins (CECFC), all 9-12th grade students have the opportunity to graduate from High School with an Associate degree, 60 college credits, and/or a certificate while in high school - for FREE!*


The CECFC Westminster College Direct Option offers the same benefits as our Fort Collins High School campus, however, College Direct students attend classes directly on the campus of one of our community college partners. 



Benefits of the CECFC Westminster College Direct Option:

  • Access to college classes at a location that is convenient for your student.
  • All students receive individualized academic and career advising every semester they attend Colorado Early Colleges.    
  • Connect with other satellite students through planned activities and events.
  • Access to on-campus college resources such as free tutoring, student activities, and many other benefits of college student life.
  • Part-time opportunities for home school and private school students.
  • Students are eligible to compete in CHSAA sports through their local high school sports program.
  • Students may participate in all activities on the Colorado Early Colleges Fort Collins campus such as school dances, talent shows, NHS, and other student-driven activities.
  • The Westminster Satellite Office is not a campus, but rather an advising and testing center. Students will participate in full advising appointments, take the ACCUPLACER and other state tests, as applicable.
  • Students will take all classes at local college campuses, even developmental courses which are the equivalent of high school/college prep classes.
  • Students will fulfill high school requirements through the community college, while simultaneously pursuing a certificate or 60 college credits.
