What is University Dual Enrollment?

While attending Florida Prep, qualified students can earn college credits for Liberal Arts and Humanities courses at Eastern Florida State College. Credited enrollment is also available at the Florida Institute of Technology (FIT/Florida Tech) for studies in aeronautics, aviation, engineering, computing, and higher-order mathematics, among other advanced subjects.

Dual Enrollment allows students who excel in their secondary school studies to pursue credit-granting courses toward a collegiate degree. Students may explore classes at the tertiary level for a variety of reasons: to learn subjects not offered at the Academy; for early exposure to their intended majors; or to gain advanced standing before enrollment at university. Dual Enrollment offers outstanding students more than the opportunity for academic enrichment; it also helps mitigate the costs of advanced education. Potential savings of up to $40,000 in tuition fees at a private university make this a cost-effective pathway to academic and professional success.

How Do You Apply For Dual Enrollment?

Applicants to the Dual Enrollment program must be domestic or international high school students whose transcript record indicates potential success in a first-year university course. The Florida Prep Academic Department will identify suitable candidates for this intensive program involving rigorous coursework and will assist in the application process. The following standards generally apply:

  • Cumulative GPA: 3.00 (unweighted) on a  4.00 scale

  • Combined SAT (Critical Reading and Math): 1100 (550 in math, if student wishes to pursue courses in math, science, or engineering)

  • ACT: 24 (25 math sub-score, if student wishes to pursue courses in math, science, or engineering)
