Congratulations on passing the TSI ! You are now eligible to take Dual Credit classes through Kilgore College at WOHS. Your registration information will be faxed over by the end of the week. Once we receive notification of registration I will send an e-mail to your wostudent account with payment information. It is important that you begin taking responsibility for communication with your parents and instructors regarding your college education. You will need to forward your college payment information to your parents. Kilgore has specific requirements and deadlines for payment, so you will need to check your WOHS email regularly to find information about setting-up your Kilgore e-mail and Blackboard account. That information will be provided to you in future e-mails for myself and KC. I will forward all information I receive to you as soon as I get it.
Additionally, please remember that WOHS operates on a A,B,C scale for credit. This means A’s are 90’s, B’s are 80’s and C’s are 70’s. You MUST make a C or better to earn credit for your history course. You MUST earn an 80 or higher to earn the weighted credit. However, Kilgore operates on an A, B, C, D scale. This means A’s are 90’s, B’s are 80’s, C’s are 70’s and D’s are 60’s. A 60 will still earn you college credit for the course, although that is not the desired grade by any means. A 60 WILL NOT earn you high school credit. Be aware of your grades. Check your Blackboard accounts daily once classes starts. Learn your Kilgore College ID number! Being a college student requires additional responsibilities. Your college instructors cannot legally communicate with your parents. Please handle your business as well or better than you handled the TSI. 🙂
Again, congratulations! Please know that I am proud of you. I believe in you. And I hope your enjoy the beginning of your college career.
If you have signed up to take the TSI, we will be giving the test Tuesday, May 16th. There will be 2 groups. Those groups will be posted Friday, May 12 in the Counselors office and on this blog.
Please bring $20 to the Counselor’s Office by May 15th. Checks can be made out to WOHS. Please have you parents put your name in the memo section.
Have a great day and Go Roughnecks!
