Dual Enrollment

What is Dual Enrollment?

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 aa 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.

Clarification of Alternative Methods for Dual Enrollment and Student Impact

There has been some information from the state to clarify how the use of alternative eligibility methods for participation in DE courses impacts students moving forward.  The alternative methods were only to be used for the Fall 2020 semester. Continuing dual enrollment students may need to take an approved common placement test (ACCUPLACER, ACT, PERT, or SAT) beginning with the summer semester (2021-3).  This will impact your students who met eligibility through an alternative measure and did not take and successfully complete ENC 1101 and/or a college-level math course.

Students who met initial dual enrollment eligibility for college-level Reading and Writing through an alternative method, but who have not taken and passed ENC1101, will need to take a common placement test, even if they have taken and passed other classes, such as a Social Science or a Humanities class. 

Students who met the college-level math requirement for dual enrollment eligibility through an alternative method must take a common placement test if they did not take and pass a college-level math course with a grade of “C” or higher. Students will only need to take a common placement math subtest (e.g., PERT Math) if they had taken and passed ENC1101 with a grade of “C” or higher. 

Students who have taken 12 or more credits and used a math alternative method for continued dual enrollment eligibility must take a common placement math subtest if they do not have a valid, math test score.

Students who met initial eligibility for dual enrollment with a passing score on an exam, such as AP or AICE, need to submit the official scores to PHSC Admissions, so that credit for ENC1101 is reflected on their PHSC record.

COVID- 19 Dual Enrollment Updates

Effective immediately, PHSC will follow the CDC recommendation of optional face mask wearing (inside or outside) for fully vaccinated employees, students, or individuals who visit our campuses. Relative protocols (social distancing, especially for non-vaccinated individuals) and the continuous practices that will help ensure the safety of students and employees on all of our campuses are encouraged.
