HILL COLLEGE INFORMATION FOR DUAL CLASSES 2014-15
Hill College will be here on campus Thursday, Nov. 13th, to assist students in registering for their spring 2015 classes. Remember, college classes are semester based, and students must register again for the spring sections of their high school year long US History and English classes. Seniors taking dual statistics, government, and psychology in the spring must register in November as well. Payment for spring classes can be made in full that day or a payment plan can be set up online when registering.
If you do not meet with Hill College on the 13th, it will be your responsibility to get signed up for your dual classes for the spring. Any student who registers for their dual classes for the spring must either set up a payment plan or pay the entire fee (either option) by January 9th, 2015, or your classes will be dropped by Hill College. It will be your responsibility at that time to re-register for those classes with Hill College. Failure to do so will result in you being removed from your dual classes at AHS.
