Ferris State University will host the annual Michigan Concurrent Enrollment Partnerships (MiCEP) Conference on October 9 at the University in Big Rapids. The conference will focus on best practices related to concurrent and dual enrollment, the National Alliance of Concurrent Enrollment Partnership (NACEP) standards, and research that is relevant to college-in-high-school programs.
Ferris State University continues to increase college access for Michigan high school students. The University has added 5 new secondary school partners and 11 new instructors to its FerrisNow Program for the upcoming academic year.
FerrisNow students need to follow three steps before their University course starts. These include reading their acceptance letters, logging in to MyFSU, and reviewing FerrisNow student resources.
FerrisNow students from the Wilson Talent Center’s risk management and insurance program participated in the Mock Auto Claim at the Accident Fund in Lansing on April 15. Students were given a scenario about an auto accident that involved two individuals, Sparty and Wolv E. Rine. Cliff Miller of the Tri-County Agency of Tawas, MI, assisted with the mock auto claim, along with Brad Bush and Jake Dye from Michigan Millers Mutual Insurance of Lansing.
“My favorite part of the Mock Auto Claim was the detail involved in analyzing an accident, and the complexity of the investigation afterward.,” said Andrea Willett, a junior from Okemos High School. “It opened my eyes to the difficulty of determining fault, and the elaborate process an adjuster goes through for every claim. It was a surprising experience.”
Charlotte High School’s partnership with Ferris State University’s FerrisNow Program began in 2014. Ten students took the first Ferris classes offered at Charlotte. Since then, the number of students has grown to 180 students. Students have the opportunity to take 11 different University courses on the high school site. The CHS administration and staff are dedicated to providing students with college credit and the skills they need to be successful in college and in their careers
