  1. Meet Participation Requirements
    • Be a resident of Orange or Osceola County and enrolled in grades 6 - 12 at a private school from our eligible private school list. (Note: private school must have a current articulation agreement with Valencia College in order for students to participate. Schools with current articulation agreements are listed on the eligible private schools list)
    • Have a 3.0 unweighted high school CGPA for grades 6-11 at the time of application or 3.0 weighted CGPA for high school seniors at the time of application.

  2. Apply For Admissions
    • Visit the Dual Enrollment website and click on the "Apply Now" button to create a login and submit the online Dual Enrollment application.
    • After you submit the application, you will be prompted to create a Dynamic Forms account. You will be required to provide a parent/legal guardian's email address and your DE school representative's full name and email address; an incorrect email address will delay processing time. This form will generate an email to the parent/legal guardian for participation approval.
    • Once your parent/legal guardian provides an online signature, an email will be automatically sent to your DE school representative to provide academic verification.
    • Once the DE school representative completes the academic verification, your DE application will be submitted to the Dual Enrollment office.
  3. Receive A Valencia ID Number (VID):
    • After your Dual Enrollment Application Signature Request form has been received with all required signatures, please allow five business days for your Valencia Identification Number (VID) to be issued and sent to the email address provided. Be sure to provide an accurate email address that is checked regularly. If you have previously applied, your VID number will remain the same.
