The Dual Enrollment Program is an accelerated program that allows eligible secondary students to take postsecondary coursework and simultaneously earn both high school and college credits. Early Admission, a form of dual enrollment, allows eligible high school seniors to enroll full time with a minimum of 12 credits in each major term. Dual Enrollment students are exempt from the payment of application, tuition and laboratory fees.
Students should contact their school counselor to complete the dual enrollment admissions and course selection process. Additional program expectations and dual enrollment guidelines and information for school counselors, students and parents can be found at www.broward.edu/dual
