College Credits in Computer Networking
Earning College Credit in
For the past two years, Sayville students who were enrolled in the Computer Networking 1H and Computer Networking 2H classes at Sayville High School have had the opportunity to earn college credit through a program offered by Farmingdale State College. The “Farmingdale State College University in the High School” program enables qualified high school sophomores, juniors and seniors to earn college credit for approved courses offered in high school. Both Computer Networking classes have been approved by Farmingdale State College allowing Sayville students enrolled in either class to earn college credit once registered with the college.
Students registering for any of the three approved college-credit courses aligned to the Computer Networking 1H and Computer Networking 2H classes at the high school must pay a registration fee of $140 per class. If a student is enrolled in the free or reduced lunch program, they are eligible for reduced college tuition at the rate of 50% per course. At the end of the first semester this February, thirty students in Mr. Coon’s Computer Networking classes earned college credit from Farmingdale State College.
A total of sixteen students, enrolled in the Computer Networking 1H class, earned three undergraduate college credits for completing the Farmingdale State College BCS 208 Networking Fundamentals course and are now enrolled in the BCS 209 Routing & Switching Essential course to earn another three college credits before the end of the school year. Another fourteen students enrolled in the Computer Networking 2H class completed the BCS 320 LAN Switching and Wireless course to earn three college credits for a total of nine undergraduate college credits from Farmingdale State College.
Sayville Students registered in approved courses with the “Farmingdale State College University in the High School” program receive an official Farmingdale State College transcript which can either be used to pursue a degree at Farmingdale State College or may be transferred to other colleges.
