Dual Enrollment for Summer or Fall 2017: Everything You Need to Know

One of the perks of being home educated is having access to college courses which count for high school AND college credit. In Florida, these courses are FREE for homeschooled students that are registered with the county.

Dual enrollment offers many benefits for homeschoolers, besides the most obvious advantage of earning free college credit and jump starting your education. Some parents choose dual enrollment to advance their children’s studies in math and science, others use dual enrollment to complete basic requirements such as English classes, foreign language, statistics, business classes, etc. Students can take classes in person and online, depending on the college.

Essentially, to be eligible to dual enroll your student must comply with the following:

  1. Fill out an application and pay the application fee
  2. Sign the Home Education Articulation Agreement form
  3. Verify through your county school district office that you are home educated. This means that you must be registered as a homeschooled student through your county school district.
  4. Have a 3.0 unweighted GPA (via an official transcript provided by the parent)
  5. Have a passing score on the SAT, ACT, or PERT test. In some counties the CPT is also accepted. Some universities in the Florida university system only accept SAT or ACT.
The advantages of dual enrollment for homeschooled students are many.
