Dual Enrollment Events & Deadlines
Exciting things are happening! The Dual Enrollment program at Eastern Florida State College continues to be one of the largest and most successful accelerated programs in the State of Florida and we continue to strive to deliver the best service to our students.
Dual enrollment students no longer need to upload printed and signed course registration forms to the EFSC Student Document Dropbox. A new process is in effect for registration in which students will be guided through a self-registration process using academic plans and advising input.
Summer 2024 Dates at a Glance
Review this overview of dates and deadlines and then be sure to review all of the important information below the dates to ensure a successful course registration process.

Course Plans: What are they and what role do they play?
Most students will be provided with a course plan via the myGPS Degree Audit tool that contains their recommended courses. This plan will serve as a roadmap for the upcoming self-registration period. Students are encouraged to log in to myEFSC and review their Spring plan (and Summer, if applicable) in myGPS with their high school counselor.
All plans are in progress, and students will be notified when their personalized plan is ready to view. We appreciate your patience.
Dual Enrollment students who have earned at least 42 credit hours or more before the start of the Summer 2024 term will be able to register early during the two-week period that starts March 18, 2024. This early registration incentive applies to dual enrollment students who meet the credit-hour threshold and those participating in the Early College program.
The Early College Program is for students whose goal is to graduate from high school with a diploma and a university-transfer Associate in Arts (A.A.) degree. Early College students must have previously applied for the program, met the qualifications, and been admitted. Due to the rigor and accelerated nature of this program, Early College students are eligible for priority registration. Not sure if you are an Early College student? Please inquire at your high school’s guidance department.
Students who are eligible for Priority Registration will receive an email notification letting them know they can self-register when online priority registration opens. Review all the sections of the accordion below for more details.
Registration Process Overview
Students should work with their school counselor before registration begins if possible to set academic goals. The number of courses, school schedule, and high school graduation requirements should be considered. Students are encouraged to use their EFSC myGPS Course Plan to assist with decisions. It's recommended the student complete the EFSC Registration Form with their counselor and obtain signatures at that time. That paper form will continue to be available through your school guidance office as a planning tool.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Students will only be able to register one time during open registration. This will allow for cross-checking by both the high school guidance departments and the college’s advising team. Once a schedule is created, changes will not be allowed except during the term's published Dual Enrollment add/drop window. This also ensures all dual enrollment students have the opportunity to register for classes that meet their academic goals.
Early Priority Course Registration: As explained in the section above, EFSC Priority Registration is for students who either have the required 42+ credit hours earned or are actively participating in the Early College program (formerly Collegiate High School). Students who are eligible for this early access will receive an email notification letting them know they can self-register when online priority registration opens, which they can do online through the end of regular registration.
Part-Time Dual Enrolled Student Registration: Any dual enrollment student who does not have a hold that would prevent registration can self-register online between April 1 and 25, 2024. EFSC High School Outreach Advisors also will be visiting BPS high schools during this period to answer course-related questions and will also have limited on-campus advising sessions. Dates for both options will be shared here when available. School Counselors can also assist students during the school day with self-registration.
During the Add/Drop period, dual enrolled students with an existing registration for Summer 2024 can make schedule changes with the approval of a high school counselor or in the case of home education, their parent, and with the assistance of an EFSC team member. IMPORTANT NOTES: Students must have a completed and signed Drop/Add Planning form to make any schedule changes. The EFSC Student Document Dropbox will no longer be used to request schedule changes.
There will be two options for students to add or drop a course from their schedule during the April 29 - May 2, 2024 Dual Enrollment Summer Term Add/Drop period.
Registration Support at High Schools: EFSC High School Outreach Advisors will be visiting high schools to assist students with registration changes, with dates available later.
Registration Support at EFSC Campuses: EFSC Enrollment staff will be available to assist students with registration changed on campus, with dates announced later. No appointment needed.
Schedule changes for dual enrollment students will not be approved after the Thursday, May 2 deadline.
