Dual Enrollment for High School Students

High School Dual Enrollment is a coursework acceleration program that allows qualified high school students to begin postsecondary coursework while earning credits toward the high school diploma. Dual Enrollment is available to local school district, private and charter school, and home school secondary students.

Participation in High School Dual Enrollment has several advantages for students planning to pursue a college degree. Early access to postsecondary courses will reduce the time and cost of completing a college degree with courses offered free of tuition and fees while you are still in high school. All dual enrollment course grades will become a permanent part of your college transcript and will be factored into future applications to other colleges and universities.

    • 1 social studies credit
  • Must have the following ACT or SAT standardized test sub-scores:

The application process

Your school counselor must indicate you have permission for dual enrollment and meet the eligibility requirements. Students must submit the School Counselor Approval Form to the Office of Admissions & Records at FSU PC before meeting with an admissions officer.

Home school students must complete the Home School Course Request Form and Articulation Agreement and provide proof of enrollment in a home education program along with verification of grade level and performance such as tests and transcripts. If the student has prior college credit, please provide a copy of the college transcript.

Step 2: complete application forms

All applicants must complete the following forms every semester in black or blue pen (not pencil) and include the FSUID created in Step 2.

Step 3: Create a New student FSUID

The FSUID is required on the dual enrollment application materials and must be created before completing the application.
