FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Will these classes transfer to other universities?
Yes! These classes will be able to transfer to other universities since FHU is an accredited institution. FHU is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC). *There are a few schools that will not accept dual enrollment classes from anywhere. It is the student’s responsibility to look up their intended school and verify that they accept dual enrollment courses.
Will the class be similar in difficulty to an AP or Honors high school class?
The courses you will take as a Dual Enrollment student are not a high school courses. DE courses are held to the same academic rigor as courses offered to a full-time undergraduate student on the FHU campus.

FERPA Privacy Release
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act is a Federal law that protects the privacy of student education records. An education record is covered by FERPA once a student enrolls and is in attendance at an institution of higher education. The law applies to all schools that receive funds under an applicable program of the U.S. Department of Education. The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act gives parents certain rights with respect to their children’s education records. This form is important because students can choose who can speak to FHU on their behalf. If a student does not have a FERPA on file, our office cannot speak to a parent or guardian regarding student information once a student is enrolled in a course.
