Plan of Study 2021-2022

The following is a plan of requirements to complete this Certificate of Completion in 2 years. Each student’s experience will vary slightly, as this plan does not include transfer work, Advanced Placement (AP), or other institutions’ concurrent enrollment credits. Math and English placement will be based on the student’s appropriate placement scores. If developmental courses are required, they should be taken in the student’s first semester.

NOTE: This plan assumes the student is prepared to take the courses listed. If prerequisites are required, additional semesters may be required to complete this degree.

Meet with the Academic Program Advisor and consult DegreeWorks for specific degree requirements.

Advising Notes

  • It is the student’s responsibility to examine each course description for details of prerequisite classes. The prerequisites must be satisfied with a C or better before the designated class may be taken.
  • Online & Evening Classes
    Many of the FHS courses are also offered online or during the evening. Several of the FHS classes require a lab in which the student works with preschool children. Online or evening students may be required to attend labs at the Eccles Lab School, which is open for labs from 8:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. If you have extenuating circumstances that would make it hard for you to complete your labs at the Eccles Lab School you should contact the FHS Lab Coordinator at 801- 957-4666 to discuss other possible options.
  • Lab Requirements
    It is important that students have the opportunity to apply the theories and practices discussed in the classroom. To this end, several of the FHS classes require weekly labs working with young children in the lab. Lab students must provide evidence of a TB test, health evaluation and Child Care Food Handler’s Permit within two weeks of starting a lab course.
  • Cooperative Education
    Students working 20 hours or more per week in a licensed child care facility may complete some lab requirements at their work site (cooperative education). Please contact the FHS Lab Coordinator at 801-957-4666 for more information.
