Important Information for all Dual Credit Students and Parents to Know
College students have responsibilities above and beyond those of high school students. We expect your student, as a CSI dual credit student, to accept responsibility for their academic record, their performance in classes, their use of MyCSI to enroll in classes and access their student information, adding/dropping/withdrawing from classes, meeting deadlines, and for timely payment of tuition and fees for their CSI classes.

Although your student may be enrolling in dual credit classes taught at their high school, dual credit classes are college classes. They appear on your student’s CSI transcript, and the grades your student earns becomes part of their permanent college record.  Your student can check the grades they’ve earned in their dual credit classes, at the end of the term, in MyCSI. Remember that the courses, credits, and grades are part of the their high school and college transcripts.  Because high school policies are different than CSI policies, on occasion, the high school grade may be different than the college grade.  If your student has questions regarding their grade, please have your student check with their teacher.

EaglemailYour student will be assigned a CSI e-mail account, EagleMail , after they registered for classes.  Your student will need to activate their EagleMailaccount at: eaglemail.csi.edu.  Your student’s e-mail address will have the following format: username@eaglemail.csi.edu and they can select their username when they activate their account.   Your student will need to check their EagleMailregularly for important information on registration deadlines, payment due dates, and other official communication from CSI.  EagleMailis the primary means of written communication with CSI students.

The Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) gives your student the right to decide who can view their education records. If your students want to allow someone else (including you, the parent,) to have access to their information, please have your student submit the FERPA release form found here: www.csi.edu/ferpa.

  1. On-line Transcript Request
  2. Idaho Dual Credit Brochure
  3. Dual Credit Transferability
  4. Permission to Release Student Records - FERPA Release Form - to be completed/signed by the student
  5. Important Deadlines
  6. Scholarship Applications
    Dual Credit scholarship funding may be available to students who have a financial need.  For information regarding the scholarship criteria and to obtain an application, please have your student contact their high school dual credit teacher and/or counselor.  Incomplete scholarship applications will not be accepted and applications must be submitted by the scholarship deadline in order to be considered for funding.  Please refer to the Important Deadlines link, found on this page, for more information.
  7. Add/Drop/Withdraw from classes
    As a dual credit college student, it is the student’s responsibility to add/drop/withdraw from classes.  Make sure your student knows the deadlines and meets those deadlines.  Refer to the Important Deadlines link, found on this page, for more information.  Students can add and drop courses online through MyCSI until the registration deadline.  If your students drops a course it will not show on their CSI transcript.  However, if your student withdraws from a course (after the registration deadline) a W will show up on their transcript.  W’s can have negative consequences, including impacting future eligibility for Federal Financial Aid.  Your student cannot withdraw from classes online; they will need to send an email to records@csi.edu from their EagleMail account.
  8. Study, study, study!
    Remember: the dual credit courses your student registers in are regular college courses and the grades they earn will show up on their permanent CSI transcript. These grades will follow your student throughout their college career. Take advantage of the opportunity for your student to jump start their college education now.
  9. Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP)
    While dual credit students are not eligible for Federal Financial Aid, after your student graduates from high school they may choose to apply for Federal Financial Aid in order to continue their college education.  In order to establish eligibility for Federal Financial Aid, students at CSI must maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP).  Your student’s performance in dual credit courses (the grades they earn, the courses they fail, the courses they withdraw from) are calculated in their SAP.  If your student does not perform well in dual credit courses, they may not be eligible for Federal Financial Aid when they graduate from high school.  For more information about CSI’s SAP policy, please go to: www.csi.edu/sap.
  10. Have your student check their college grades
    At the end of the term, have your student check MyCSI to see the grades that they earned in their dual credit classes. Remember that the courses, credits, and grades are part of their high school and college transcripts.  Because high school policies are different than CSI policies, on occasion, your student’s high school grade may be different than their college grade.  If your student has questions regarding their grade, please have your student check with their teacher.
  11. Plan ahead
    As a dual credit student your child is listed as a non degree-seeking status at CSI which means that they do not have a declared major or an assigned advisor. However, as soon as your student starts taking college classes, it is important that they have a plan. The sooner your student figures out what career they are interested in, what degree or certificate they would like to pursue, the more likely is that they will be taking the right courses in the right order and graduating on time, without wasting time and money. The following resources can help you and your student plan ahead:
