How to Dual Enroll: Home Education Students

Review the first step in the accordion below to determine if you are eligible to enroll at EFSC as a dual enrolled home education student.

After reviewing the eligibility information, follow the step-by-step guide to complete the admissions process and to register for classes.

Be sure to pay attention to dual enrollment application and registration deadlines, which can be checked through the calendar information and links on this page.

If you have questions, contact EFSC's Dual Enrollment Office at 321-433-7614 or email dualenroll@easternflorida.edu.

Determine if you're eligible for Dual Enrollment

Home education students must be a first-time 6th through 12th grade student.

A college-ready reading and writing score on a college-approved placement test is required to participate in Dual Enrollment for an Associate in Arts (A.A.) and for Associate in Science (A.S.) programs. For Early Admission or to take a college credit math course, students must also present a college-ready placement test mathematics score.

For a College Credit Certificate program, reading, writing and math scores have to be on file from an accepted college placement test, but do not have to meet the college-ready level.

Apply for admission to EFSC
  1. Complete the High School Dual Enrollment online application by the established deadline, which can be viewed in the calendar dates shared through this page. You are exempt from paying the application fee.
  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 New Student Orientation to register for your EFSC classes. It provides you with information about college resources and tools, student services, academic policies and procedures, student safety and more.

To access the orienation and complete this requirement, log into the myEFSC portal. Refer to your acceptance letter for your Student email address and initial password required to log in.

icon with Titan Orientation and Titan PreviewLocate the Student Orientation/Titan Preview icon in the app launcher. Clicking the icon will begin the orientation. If you cannot complete the process at one sitting, the system will remember where you left off and pick up there when you log back in through myEFSC. Once you have completed all sections, the Dual Enrollment Orientation hold will be removed from your account.

Complete the College Placement Testing Requirement

You must submit official college placement scores in reading, writing, and mathematics to enroll in college credit courses. Scores may not be more than 24 months old.

The College must have an official test score report to use your ACT or SAT scores. EFSC recommends that students request that the testing agency send their ACT or SAT scores directly to EFSC when registering for the test. To submit your SAT scores to the College later, log in to your College Board account, download and save your score report, and submit the document through the myEFSC Portal using the Student Document Dropbox for Admissions.

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.

IMPORTANT – EFSC Retesting Policy: Home education students must have college-ready reading and writing scores to dual enroll in an Associate in Arts (A.A.) or Associate in Science (A.S.) program. A college-ready math score is not required for an A.A. or A.S. unless you plan to take a college-level math course such as MAT 1033, MAC 1105, or MGF 1106. To dual enroll in a College Credit Certificate (CCC) program a student must have college placement scores in reading, writing, and math on file with the college, but those scores do not have to be at the college-ready level for a CCC.

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 "Dual Enrollment Initial Advising" Session

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 self-register for classes.

You can email binningerd@easternflorida.edu 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.
