I have not received official approval for my course yet. Can I have my students fill out registration forms?
No. Each teacher must receive official approval from the Fast Forward Center via the SUNY Broome Academic Department, for each course being offered, before they enroll any students in the course.
I have a question regarding my course and/or the Fast Forward Program, who do I contact?
The Fast Forward Facilitator is your point of contact regarding registration and general program questions, comments, and concerns.
The SUNY Broome academic department is your point of contact regarding course content and syllabus review.
I am a Fast Forward instructor who wants to teach an additional SUNY Broome course. How do I go about doing this?
Fast Forward instructors can go to the tab entitled “Teach a New Course” underneath the High School Faculty tab to fill out a brief application.
Do I need to submit my course syllabus now, even though I already turned one in last year?
Yes. We require a current course syllabus for every semester that you teach the course.
I have a student who is taking more than one Concurrent Enrollment course. Can they place all their courses on one registration form?
Do all students need to complete a certificate of residency application?
No. All students except the following:
- Students who already have a valid certificate of residency on file with the college (certificates are good for one year).
- Foreign exchange students.
- Students who have not been a New York State resident for the past full year.
I have a student who just moved into the district from another county in New York State. How do they apply for a certificate of residency?
Until the student has lived in your county for six months, they will need to complete an application for a certificate of residency from their FORMER county.
Do we send the certificate of residency applications to the appropriate county, or to your office?
Students residing in Broome County can be sent to the Fast Forward Center. Students residing in counties other than Broome must have the form appropriately notarized and sent to the respective county office.
If a student does not obtain a certificate of residence, do they still receive college credit for their course?
Yes. The certificate of residence status does not relate to a student’s ability to obtain college credit. As long as the student completes a registration form and successfully completes the course, the student will receive college credit. Please note, all New York State residents attending a community college in New York State are required to obtain a certificate of residency.
