How do I get started?
- Think about your education and career goals. The website Florida Virtual Campus is an excellent educational planning website.
- Browse through the FKCC catalog to identify the degree programs and courses that interest you, then:
- Meet with your school counselor to discuss your goals and the FKCC accelerated education options that can help you reach them.
- Arrange for free college placement testing (PERT) if you plan to enroll in college credit classes and have not taken an appropriate college placement test.
a. Students must make an appointment to take the PERT test.
b. To make an appointment, students must complete thePERT Authorization Form with their counselor and return it to FKCC with their completed DE Application for Admission.
c. Alternatively, the counselor can call (305) 809-3196 for KWHS, (305) 809-3219 MHS, or (305) 809-3154 CSHS to schedule an appointment and the student must show up 30 minutes prior to testing with all completed forms.
d. Once the student has been assigned a student ID by FKCC, they may take the PERT test.
e. Students are responsible for returning test scores to their high school counselor.
