Courses of fewer than 3 college credits with the exception of courses designated as lab courses shall not be eligible for Dual
Enrollment. Courses with lab fees over $225 shall be excluded from eligibility for Dual Enrollment
Approved courses shall be credit-bearing courses leading to the completion of an associate degree or vocational certificate
and shall not include remedial or physical education skills courses.
Approval to enroll in a Dual Enrollment course does not guarantee applicability toward satisfaction of requirements for
eligibility for Bright Futures Scholarship.
In most cases, acceptance into these programs is based on the student having completed the ninth grade.
The applicant must have an approved Dual Enrollment Authorization Form from his/her high school. Or if the student is
a home school student they must have a Dual Enrollment Home School Approval form completed and on file for every
semester in which they wish to participate in Dual Enrollment.
All dual enrollment students must take college placement exams and must meet the requirements below:
• Completion of grade 9. These students who have completed one semester of grade 9 will be allowed to receive
dual enrollment credit on a case by case basis. Students must have tested out of REA 0017, ENC 0025, and MAT 0024
(or MAT0028) on the CPT, PERT, SAT or ACT for Reading, English and Algebra.
• An unweighted GPA of 3.0 and demonstrated readiness for college course work through scores on the College
Placement Test (CPT), Postsecondary Educational Readiness Test (PERT), ACT, FCAT10 and/or SAT. For students who
do not meet the GPA requirements, the high school principal may make a recommendation to the Provost and/or
Vice Provost to grant an exception.
• Recommendation from the guidance counselor, principal or home school equivalent.
• Expressed intent by the student to pursue a postsecondary degree or vocational certificate.
• In addition to prerequisites listed in the college catalog students must score at college level reading on the CPT,
PERT, ACT, SAT, or FCAT 10.
• Students must satisfy the college preparatory testing requirements of Section 1008.30(4)(a), F.S. and Rule
6A-10.0315, F.A.C., which is hereby incorporated by reference. Students who have been identified as deficient
in basic competencies in one of the areas of reading, writing or mathematics, as determined by scores on a
postsecondary readiness assessment identified in Rule 6A-10.0315, F.A.C., shall not be permitted to enroll in college
credit courses in curriculum areas precluded by the deficiency. Students may enroll in college credit courses
that are not precluded by the deficiency; however, students may not earn more than twelve (12) college credit
hours prior to the correction of all deficiencies. Exceptions to the twelve (12) college credit hour limitation may
be granted by FKCC provided that the dual enrollment student is concurrently enrolled in a secondary course(s)
in the basic competency area(s) for which they have been deemed deficient by the postsecondary readiness
assessment. In addition, the secondary student that has accumulated twelve (12) college credit hours and has not
yet demonstrated proficiency in the basic competency areas of reading, writing and mathematics must be advised
in writing by MCSD of the requirements for associate degree completion and state university admission, including
information about future financial aid eligibility and the potential costs of accumulating excessive college credit, as
outlined in Section 1009.286, F.S.
• In order to remain eligible for college credit coursework, students must maintain the high school grade point
average required for initial enrollment and a college GPA of 2.0 or higher.
