FAQs

The Dual Enrollment Program at Broward College (BC) is an accelerated program that allows eligible public/charter, private and home school secondary students to take post secondary coursework and earn high school and college credits at the same time, saving both time and money! Dual Enrollment students are exempt from the payment of application fees, tuition and laboratory fees. 

​Early Admission, a form of dual enrollment, allows eligible senior high school students to enroll in at least 12 credits per term and maintain a college GPA of 2.0 or greater. Early admission students wishing to matriculate to BC will need to submit their final high school transcript showing their graduation date.

Students who are enrolled as a student in a Florida public or non-public secondary school or home education program in Broward County may participate.  Students must have an unweighted high school GPA of 3.0 and be college ready in all three areas of placement testing for English, Reading and Math (GPA does not apply to homeschool students).

Home education students shall have equal access to dual enrollment as public school students. Home education students must present evidence to Broward County Public School’s Home Education Office that the home education program is in compliance with section 1002.41, F.S.

Home education students may find the “Recommendation and Articulation Agreement for Dual Enrollment Home School Students” online at www.broward.edu/dual under the Home School Students section.  A new form signed by a Broward County District Home Education Office Official is required each term to register for courses.

  • Complete a Dual Enrollment Recommendation Form each term with parent/legal guardian, student, school counselor and principal signatures
  • Maintain a 3.0 unweighted GPA in high school academic work
  • Maintain a 2.0 Broward College GPA
  • Earn a grade of “C” or better in each college-level course
  • Dual Enrolled students who receive a “D” or “F” grade are no longer eligible to participate in the program. 
  • Early Admission and College Academy students who receive a “D” or “F” grade may only be allowed to continue taking courses if approved by the school counselor from the high school and still meet program eligibility requirements.

​No. A student who is enrolled in a dual enrollment or early admission program through a Florida College System institution or state university is exempt from the payment of tuition and fees, pursuant to s. 1009.25, F.S. The fee exemption includes application, registration, tuition, and laboratory fees for courses taken through dual enrollment.

Section 1007.271(14), F.S., specifies that “Instructional materials assigned for use within dual enrollment courses shall be made available to students from Florida public high schools free of charge.” This includes public, home school and charter school students. 

Students enrolled in non-public secondary schools must provide their own materials.

Students may register online for open and approved courses during the published registration dates, however, students are required to submit necessary dual enrollment paperwork to their school counselor by the dual enrollment deadline set by the high school. Each high school establishes its own deadlines for compiling dual enrollment paperwork; therefore, students should contact their high school counselor for specific dual enrollment deadline dates.
