Personalized Education Plan (PEP) Students

All Personalized Education Plan (PEP) recipients must reside in Orange or Osceola County. PEP students must meet admission criteria and maintain program eligibility to participate in Dual Enrollment.

PEP students must provide the Personalized Education Plan scholarship award letter at the time of submitting the dual enrollment application. The award letter can be located in your PEP student portal. Documentation other than the scholarship award letter will not be accepted.

All PEP students participating in Dual Enrollment are required to submit a Personalized Education Plan articulation agreement and an updated scholarship award letter before the start of each school year. The PEP articulation agreement will be sent to the student’s Atlas email with instructions and the deadline to submit agreement to the Dual Enrollment Office.
