Early Admission at EFSC

Early Admission is a form of dual enrollment that enables qualified students to spend their senior year at Eastern Florida as full-time students. Students earn credits that count toward both a college degree and a high school diploma. Upon completion of their senior year, early admission students are no longer eligible for dual enrollment.

Early Admission students can complete a full year of college by enrolling in four or five EFSC courses in both the fall and spring terms totaling at least 12 credit hours each term.

Public, private, and home school students receive required college textbooks and access codes directly from the EFSC Bookstore through the Titan First Day Ready program.

While Early Admission students must take all their courses at the college, they remain eligible to participate in high school clubs and athletics and to attend all high school graduation activities. Many are also involved in college clubs and organizations, such as the Student Government Association or Phi Theta Kappa.

At the time of application, home school, private school, and Brevard public school applicants for Early Admission must be in the equivalent of 11th grade. Brevard public school students must have completed all required subject-area courses for graduation by the designated summer deadline, except for one high school credit each in English, science, social studies, and math. Public school students must complete these requirements while in early admission by dual enrolling in equivalent college courses at Eastern Florida.

To be considered for the Early Admission program, students must have already completed the EFSC online application for admission and received their college acceptance letter before submitting an Early Admission Application following the process explained below. Additional eligibility criteria include:

  • College-ready 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

Course Registration Process

Early Admission students must enroll in 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 Chemistry Lab, do not count toward meeting the four-course minimum.

Brevard public school students may not register for more than five courses each term unless they have an unweighted high school GPA of at least 3.5 and the permission of their high school.

Students should follow the dual enrollment self-registration process each term.
