The Basics

Dual enrollment is an articulated acceleration mechanism open to eligible secondary students in Florida public schools. To enroll in dual enrollment academic courses, students must demonstrate a readiness to successfully complete college level course work and have attained a qualifying grade point average. In order to determine the high school equivalency and the high school credit awarded for postsecondary courses completed through dual enrollment, please refer to the most current Dual Enrollment Course – High School Subject Area Equivalency. The district must weigh college-level dual enrollment courses the same as Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate, and Advanced International Certification of Education courses when grade point averages are calculated.

Requirements to take Dual Enrollment Courses:

• Requires a 3.00 unweighted High School Grade Point Average (GPA) to participate in all courses, with the exception of SLS courses in which a 2.5 weighted high school GPA is required..

• Requires completion of all college or university admission requirements, including passing a placement test if required.

• Requires approval from parent/guardian, counselor and principal. The school is under no obligation to accept credit without it.

• Grades for the courses will be posted on high school transcript independently of student's choice.

• The course fee is waived by the college/university, and the District pays for the required books/materials.

• Transportation to and from the college/university is the student's responsibility.

• Required return of all college textbooks issued or else the student will be financially responsible to the high school.
