This post is all about Dual Enrollment at Eastern Florida State College. We will touch on what Dual Enrollment is, initial eligibility, and some updates in this COVID-19 time.
What is Dual Enrollment?
Dual Enrollment is a course of study for dedicated high school students. Students can earn both high school and college credit at the same time by taking college classes through Eastern Florida State College. Some students even graduate from high school with their Associate’s degree (essentially the first 2 years of college). Dual Enrollment students save thousands of dollars on college tuition and textbooks.
Students can begin Dual Enrollment courses the summer directly after 9th grade. Students have to have a cumulative, unweighted, high school GPA of 3.0 or higher. Students will also have to take and pass both the Reading and Writing sections of the PERT, or have comparative scores on the ACT, SAT, or CPT. If students want to take a math course at EFSC, they will also need to have passing test scores on the math sections of one of the previously mentioned tests as well. Additional requirements include completing the EFSC application, and attending an orientation at EFSC. If you missed the Dual Enrollment Night that was held in January, please see the powerpoint below.
The orientation is now entirely virtual. The ACCUPLACER is offered online for students who have not taken or have not yet met the test score requirement. The orientation and test link can be found at: https://www.easternflorida.edu/admissions/dual-enrollment/publicprivateschoolstudents.cfm. The process for registering for courses has changed. Please see the attached file for the complete process.
As always, please let your counselor know if you have any questions! Take care and stay well!
