Being a College NOW Partner

As a member of the administrative team at your high school/career center, it is important that you understand the different phases of the partnership process.

Course Selection

  • We provide a course selection guide to help you select appropriate Heartland courses every year.

  • You can select Heartland courses to be taught by a qualified instructor from your high school or career center.

  • You could also select courses to be taught by Heartland instructors on our campus, at our Lincoln/Pontiac center, or online.

  • Heartland deans/chairpersons review and approve your course requests each year.

Student Admission 

  • We work together to help students through the admission process in preparation for enrollment.

  • You send us rosters containing only students who meet the requirements to be enrolled for college credit.

Partnership Confirmation 

  • We solidify our partnership annually with a memorandum of understanding (MOU) that lists:

    • logistics for confirmed courses 

    • approved instructors of record

    • required/recommended textbooks

  • We add your courses to our master schedule and complete student enrollment in Heartland's system.
