    Dual Enrollment


    Dual Enrollment 

    Dual enrollment is a program that allows high school students to simultaneously earn college or vocational credit toward a post-secondary diploma, certificate, or degree at a Florida public institution while also earning credit toward a high school diploma. Dual enrollment courses are free to students who attend a Florida public college, technical center, or university; this includes registration, matriculation, or laboratory fees for courses taken through dual enrollment. Instructional materials (such as books) are provided to public school students free of charge; however, students enrolled in home education programs or nonpublic secondary schools must provide their own materials. 

    To qualify for Dual Enrollment, a student must meet the criteria that are established by the Student Progression Plan of CCPS and which are included in the Inter-institutional Articulation Agreement with the other institution.


    Early Admission Program

    Early admission shall be a form of dual enrollment through which eligible secondary students enroll in a post-secondary institution on a full-time basis in courses that are creditable toward the high school diploma and the associate or baccalaureate degree. Students enrolled pursuant to this subsection shall be exempt from the payment of registration, tuition, and laboratory fees. Interested students should speak with the school counselor for additional information.

    When students leave high school as Early Admission Program students, they may participate in graduation exercises with their graduating class and may be ranked in class using district policy regarding weighting of Dual Enrollment classes. Early admitted students are not permitted to attend classes at the home high school nor are they permitted to participate in co-curricular activities.
