- Students are provided with additional academic challenges beyond the high school level
- The credit students earn may help them complete their college degree sooner since college readiness, concurrent enrollment and dual enrollment courses transfer to other colleges
- Taking college classes in high school may ease the transition from high school to full-time college student
- Enrolling in a college course while still in high school enhances a student’s college admission profile
- Students may qualify for the FerrisNext Scholarship (Scholarship information is available on the Incoming Freshmen Scholarships webpage).
FerrisNow students may be eligible for a $1,000 FerrisNext Scholarship if they earned at least three college credits with a "C" or higher through Ferris while they were in high school.
Detailed scholarship information is available on the Incoming Freshmen Scholarships webpage.
All FerrisNow students have a registration hold applied to their Ferris State University accounts.
This hold prevents you from registering for Ferris courses. You will be registered for your courses by the FerrisNow Program staff.
If you are a high school student and have questions about taking Ferris classes, consult your high school or career and technical education center counselor.
Address Verification Holds
Keeping your phone number and address current is important. Thus, an address verification hold is applied to all student accounts. This hold is in place so the University has up-to-date information for students.
An address verification hold prevents you from requesting an official Ferris State transcript.
The hold will be lifted after you verify that your address is correct in MyFSU. You will need to update your address in MyFSU if changes occur to your local and permanent address.
Follow the instructions below to have the Address Verification hold removed from your student account.
1. Log-in to MyFSU.
2. Select the "Student" tab.
3. Select "MyRecords."
4. Select "Verify/Update Address."
Choose "I need to make changes and enter necessary updates" or "No changes necessary" to verify that your current information is correct.
Students must be held to the same standards of achievement as those expected of students on Ferris State’s campus. Students’ performances should be assessed using the same methods as students taking college courses on campus (papers, portfolios, quizzes, labs, etc.).
Students are officially registered as Ferris students. Courses are recorded on an official university transcript. Students enrolling in concurrent enrollment courses for college credit must meet the same course pre-requisites as students on campus and meet dual enrollment guidelines.
- Secondary administrators, instructors and students enrolling in concurrent enrollment, dual enrollment, CARE 102, CARE 201, CARE 203, READ 106, READ 176, UNIV 101, and Woodbridge Promise classes should be aware that course content, instruction, academic expectations, and supporting materials have been developed for adult students typically age 18 or older.
- Participation in FerrisNow Programs does not guarantee admission to Ferris following a student’s high school graduation. Students must meet the Ferris admissions criteria.
