Policies - CHS

College in the High School students have the same expectation of behavior as any other student attending EvCC. It is the responsibility of the student to be familiar with these policies and procedures.

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)
FERPA affords students certain rights with respect to their education records. For full rights visit the Confidentialitry/FERPA page. These rights, as they pertain to the College in the High School program, do not permit college staff to disclose or discuss students’ records with anyone other than the student; this includes non-disclosure to parents or legal guardians. When inquiring about student records the student must make the inquiry.

Student Policies and Student Handbook
Everett Community College follows a number of guidelines that support a civil and respectful environment and provide procedures to assure fair treatment. EvCC's Student Activities Office publishes an annual Student Handbook which outlines many of the policies and procedures that support student conduct and institutional responsibilities.

Prerequisites
The College in the High School (CHS) program requires that student meet the same prerequisites and/or placement test scores that all students of EvCC must meet.
Most students will need to take the Compass Placement test in order to meet the required prerequisites. Required prerequisite list can be found on the CHS landing page under the “Prerequisite” link in the table and your high school teacher can also tell you what the required prerequisites are. Once the student has successfully met the prerequisite placement they can move on to the last step: Registration. Students who do not meet the required placement test scores may not register for the College in the High School credit. No exceptions. To view a list of courses and whether or not you need to take the compass test click here. /files/programs/ccec/college-in-hs/chs-course-list-compass.pdf
The cost for the test is $30. There are no waivers for this testing fee.
