Dual enrollment is an acceleration program that allows students to take postsecondary coursework and simultaneously earn credit toward a high school diploma, a career certificate, an industry certification or an associate or baccalaureate degree at a Florida public or eligible private postsecondary institution. If you have questions about dual enrollment, please contact your school counselor. For more information, please visit the PHSC website.

Dual Enrollment grades are reported in the PHSC platform WISE. Due to FERPA guidelines, parents of college students, including dual enrollment, do not have access to this platform unless the student shares this information. Grades for dual enrollment courses taken on the high school campus are also kept in the WISE platform and not in myStudent. Please talk with your student to gain access to grades.
Students must meet the following eligibility criteria per Section 1007.271(3), F.S.:
Students must maintain at least a 3.0 unweighted high school GPA and the 2.0 postsecondary GPA specified in the Dual Agreement Articulation Agreement for continued eligibility to participate in college credit dual enrollment courses. Students may be removed from dual enrollment courses if their GPA falls below the required 3.0. If you are unsure if your student meets the above criteria, please contact your school counselor.
