How to Dual Enroll: Home Education Students

Review the accordion below for the steps to apply and enroll at EFSC as a dual enrolled home education student.

Please note that the course registration process was changed for Spring Term 2024 courses to a more streamlined self-registration process with course plans and advising so pay careful attention to the information in the Step 7 Registration section. Also, spring term students must have met the October 9th deadline to apply for Spring Term Dual Enrollment and completed admissions requirements by the October 19th deadline.

If you have questions, contact EFSC's Dual Enrollment Office at 321-433-7614 or email

Determine if you're eligible for Dual Enrollment

Home education students must be in the equivalent of 10th, 11th, or 12th grade.  Students in grades 6 – 9 must have successfully completed at least two high school level academic courses with a B or higher.

A college-ready reading and writing score on a college-approved placement test or alternate method is required to participate in Dual Enrollment. For Early Admission or to take a college credit math course, students must also present a college-ready math score.

Students should determine with their parent if they meet the minimum test score requirements for Dual Enrollment. 

Apply for admission to EFSC
  1. Complete the High School Dual Enrollment Online Application. EFSC waives the application fee for dual enrollment students. Spring term students must have met the October 9th deadline to apply and completed admissions requirements by the October 19th deadline.
  2. Home education compliance: Students must be a resident of Brevard County with the student’s home education program registered with the Brevard County School Board. Before processing the student's Application for Admission, the College is required to verify with the Brevard County School Board that the applicant's program meets state home education requirements.
Complete the required EFSC Dual Enrollment Orientation

You must have completed the online Dual Enrollment Orientation to register for your EFSC classes. To complete this requirement, log into the myEFSC portal. Refer to your acceptance letter for your Student email address and initial password used to log in.

Once logged in, find the EFSC Student Application section (on the left on a desktop computer). Click the down arrow on the Application menu; scroll to “Dual Enrollment Student Orientation” and click “Launch”. When you have completed the last section of the Orientation, be sure to click the submit button.

Complete the College Placement Testing Requirement

Students are required to submit college placement scores in reading, writing and mathematics to enroll in college credit courses. Approved tests include the ACT, SAT, ACCUPLACER NG. and PERT. Scores may not be more than 24 months old.

If you have qualifying SAT scores and did not have them sent electronically to EFSC, then you will need to log into your College Board account, download your scores and submit them in the myEFSC Portal using the Student Document Dropbox for Admissions. (ACT no longer offers this option).

Students without SAT or ACT scores may also test through EFSC. View the placement testing options, which include the online ACCUPLACER exam or the on-campus PERT offered at all four Campus Assessment Centers.

IMPORTANT – EFSC Retesting Policy: Students must have college-ready reading and writing scores to participate in EFSC’s Dual Enrollment Program. A college-ready math score is not required unless the student plans to take a college-level math course such as MAT 1033, MAC 1105 or MGF 1106 or to apply for Early Admission.

Students who do not score college-ready in one or more subject areas on the PERT may retest two more times within twelve months of the initial testing session so long as there are 30 days between each testing appointment. While there is no charge for the initial placement test, there is a $10 retest fee for each subtest taken for a second or third time within this 12-month period. Once the 12-month period is completed, the testing cycle will begin again, with the college administering the PERT once at no cost to the student and two more times with a retest charge of $10 per subtest.

Schedule the required "First Time in College Advising Session" with your advisor

Log in to your myEFSC portal to see the name of your assigned EFSC advisor in the Student Services Appointment section. Follow the directions to schedule your advising session which can be done through the Navigate icon. You may also email the advisor directly to set a date. Important: Your record will show a “registration hold” until this requirement is met.

Fill out the EFSC Dual Enrollment Registration Form and Articulation Agreement

Once the student has completed the admissions and testing process, the home school parent must complete a Home Education Dual Enrollment Registration Form & Articulation Agreement in order for the student to register for classes.

You can email for a copy.

Provide all requested information, including selected program of study, grade level, and desired EFSC courses.

NOTE: Students must meet all program and course prerequisites and are limited to 3 courses or 11 credits per major term unless they are in the Early Admission program. Students are limited to one course in the summer.

Students should save the Home Education Registration Form/Articulation Agreement and upload it to the EFSC Student Document Dropbox. In the Dropbox, select from the office list. To access the Dropbox, the student begins by logging into myEFSC. Scroll down to the Student Document Dropbox section. Click “Choose File” and this will prompt a window to access the file location on the computer. Navigate to the file, select it and click open. Students should now see the file name extension next to the “Choose File” button. Under “Send To:” click the dropdown arrow for “---Select Office---“ and choose “Dual Enrollment – Homeschool Students Only ". Click upload and the file is sent for review.

    Watch how to access your plan in myGPS.

Fees: Students are responsible for paying the $10 per semester Wi-Fi/Print Student Access Fee. If the student intends to park a vehicle on campus while attending class, the student must purchase a parking permit. To avoid receiving a traffic citation and fine, purchase the parking permit by the end of the first week of classes and park only in student designated areas.

Get Required Textbook/Instructional Materials

Starting with Fall Term 2023 the process for Home Education students to obtain their free required course instruction materials has changed. There is no longer a Home Education Dual Enrollment Instructional Materials Agreement and a specified textbook distribution window.

Home education students will automatically be enrolled in the Titan First Day Ready program at no charge and receive program communications to their Titan email from the Barnes and Noble College bookstore.

Public school, private school, and home education students are responsible for purchasing required consumable instructional materials that cannot be used by another student, such as lab coats, goggles, and personal tools.
