How to Dual Enroll: Public & Private School Students

If you are just starting your college journey, review the high school GPA and test score requirements in the "Getting Started" section of the accordion below and verify with your high school counselor that you qualify for Dual Enrollment.

After that verification, 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 your high school counselor or email

Getting Started with Dual Enrollment

Meet with a school counselor to determine if you are eligible for Dual Enrollment. Private school students must be enrolled in a school that has an articulation agreement with the College to participate.

Be sure you meet the minimum unweighted cumulative high school GPA and test score requirements for the EFSC program that interests you. Private school students should also consult with their school to determine potential costs associated with the Dual Enrollment Program.  

Associate in Arts Degree (A.A.):
3.0 unweighted high school GPA
College-ready reading and writing scores on an accepted college placement test

Associate in Science Degree (A.S.):
3.0 unweighted high school GPA 
College-ready reading and writing scores on an accepted college placement test

Note: Math scores must also be on file with EFSC, but the scores do not have to be college-ready for an A.A. or A.S. program unless you plan to take a college-level math course such as MAT 1033, MAC 1105, or MGF 1106.
College Credit Certificate (CCC):
2.5 unweighted high school GPA
Reading, writing and math scores on file from an accepted college placement test (For a CCC program, scores just have to be on file and do not have to meet the college-ready level)

Career and Technical Certificate (CTC):
2.0 unweighted high school GPA

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. If you are a public school student, the College will contact your high school for your transcript and the school will send it electronically to EFSC. Private school students should request their school send an official transcript to an EFSC Admissions Office.
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: Besides a GPA of at least 3.0, you must also 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.

If you do not score college-ready in one or more subject areas on the PERT, you may retest two more times within twelve months of your 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 Information section. Follow the information to schedule your advising session using the Navigate system. You may also email the advisor directly to set a date. Important: Your record will show a “registration hold” until this requirement is met.

Register for Courses
  • View the Dual Enrollment course registration related dates. Dual enrollment students follow a specific timeline and must adhere to program deadlines.
  • You should review your myGPS Degree Audit inside the myEFSC Portal for your "Plan" prepared by an EFSC advisor to assist with course registration. Watch a video about how to access and find your plan.
  • Meet with your high school counselor and/or review your course plan in myGPS prior to the start of registration to select courses that meet your needs for your school schedule and high school graduation requirements.
  • New students are encouraged to register for their first term with the support of their advisor at a school-based registration event or at a scheduled one-on-one advising session.
  • Students may self-register for their courses online. Registration must be completed in one session for all courses for the specified term. IMPORTANT: Dual enrollment students will be locked from making any changes to courses upon completion of registration. Watch a video on "How to Register for Courses Online."

Fees: EFSC waives tuition and fees in accordance with Florida Statute for students participating in Dual Enrollment. All students are responsible for paying the $10 per semester Wi-Fi/Print Access Fee. If you intend to park a vehicle on campus you must purchase a parking decal. Decals are $40 plus tax if bought in Fall Term for the Academic Year through the following Summer Term; or $20 plus tax if purchased during a Spring or Summer Term to cover those two terms. To avoid receiving a traffic citation and fine, purchase your parking permit by the end of the first week of classes and park only in student designated parking areas.

Public and private school, and 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.
