Dual enrollment is an acceleration program that allows secondary students to take postsecondary coursework and simultaneously earn credit toward high school completion and an industry certification, or an associate or baccalaureate degree at a Florida public or eligible private institution.

According to the U.S. Department of Education, college credit earned prior to high school graduation reduces the average time-to-degree and increases the likelihood of graduation for the students who participate in these programs. There is great potential to further engage and motivate students to take academically rigorous courses that capture their interests. There is also evidence that dual enrollment increases academic performance and educational attainment.

Key requirements include the following:

  1. Academic readiness, social maturity and motivation
  2. Not yet graduated from high school (junior or senior status)
  3. Meet GPA and college-level test score eligibility requirements
  4. Successfully complete courses, with a "C" or better
  5. Receiving both high school and college credit for the course

Effective Immediately (as of March 30, 2012)

All students are required to submit college-level test scores for reading, writing and math (any combination of eligible scores will be accepted) along with the admissions application, by the designated term deadline.
