The Fast Forward/Early College Center will review and process the applicant’s transcript and application (P: 607-778-5798, F: 607-778-5442).
Students residing in NYS will also complete a Certificate of Residency (pdf) form which must be completed on time to avoid double tuition charges. Bills are not mailed home. Students can view and pay their bills via their MyCollege account. Questions regarding tuition payment and residency certificate should be directed to Student Accounts (P: 607-778-5230, F: 607-778-5536).
Students approved for and taking six credits or more will need to submit immunization records to the Student Health Services Office (P: 607-778-5181, F: 607-778-5530)
Students must independently secure permission from their high school for credits to count toward their high school diploma. Early College will not become involved in this process.
