EARLY ADMISSION APPLICATION DEADLINE for 2016-17 school year: Tuesday, May 10, 2016
Finish one year of college while you are in your final year of high school through Eastern Florida’s Early Admission Program. Early admission students take all of their classes at the college beginning in the fall term of 12th grade, while remaining eligible to participate in clubs, athletics and graduation activities at their high school.
Because early admission is a form of dual enrollment, EFSC does not charge early admission students tuition and certain fees. Public school students receive required instructional materials from their high school. Private school and home school students are responsible for purchasing required instructional materials.
Early Admission applicants must be in 11th grade and on track to have completed all required subject-area courses for graduation by Thursday, August 4, 2016 with the exception of up to one high school credit each in English, Science, Social Studies and Math and a .5 credit in Performing Arts. Participants must complete these requirements while in Early Admission by dual enrolling in equivalent college courses at Eastern Florida.
To be considered for Early Admission, students must have completed the EFSC admissions process and received their acceptance letter before submitting an Early Admission Application. Additional eligibility criteria include:
- Passing placement test scores in Reading, Writing, and Mathematics
- An unweighted cumulative high school GPA of at least 3.0
- Meeting the early admission application deadline of Tuesday, May 10, 2016.

Early admission students must register in person. An advisor can help you plan your coursework toward meeting high school graduation requirements and your postsecondary goals. Participants must register for at least four courses equaling 12 credit hours or more each term and earn sufficient credits at the college to meet high school graduation requirements. Course co-requisites, such as a Chemistry Lab, do not count toward meeting the four course minimum. Early Admission students may not enroll in any courses on the high school campus.
