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 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.
