Duval County Public Schools and Florida State College at Jacksonville Traditional Dual Enrollment Option

Eligibility and Access

Florida law (s. 1007.271, F.S.) defines the following eligibility criteria for students:

  • Be enrolled as a student in a Florida public or nonpublic secondary school, or in a home education program;

  • Have a 3.0 unweighted high school grade point average (GPA) to enroll in college credit courses, or a 2.0 high school unweighted GPA to enroll in career dual enrollment courses;

  • Take a college placement test specified in Rule 6A-10.0315, F.A.C; and meet any additional eligibility criteria specified by the postsecondary institution in the Dual Enrollment Articulation Agreement (DEAA); and

  • Cannot be scheduled to graduate prior to completion of the dual enrollment course.

Student Behavior

Pursuant to F.S. 1007.271, regardless of meeting student eligibility requirements for continued enrollment, students may lose the opportunity to participate, whether the course is offered at the high school or a college/university, if disruptive to the learning process such that the progress of other students or the efficient administration of the course is hindered. It is the expectation that students read and adhere to the rules set forth in both the DCPS and FSCJ Code of Conduct. Disciplinary issues on the FSCJ campus will be addressed by a team comprised of DCPS and FSCJ personnel.

Eligibility for Academic Dual Enrollment:

  • Students are required to be eligible prior to the start of the class.

  • A signature by a counselor on a dual enrollment application indicates that the student is eligible.

  • Academic dual enrollment grade point average (GPA) is 3.0 unweighted (state GPA on the DCPS academic history and transcript).

  • Students must be in grade 11 or 12.

    • Exception: Students in grade 9 accepted into an Early College program

    • Exception: Students in grade 10 who have earned a ā€œCā€ or better in the level 1 and 2 classes in the same language may enroll in level 3 dual enrollment world language.

  • Students cannot be scheduled to graduate prior to the completion of the dual enrollment course(s).

  • Students may qualify to take up to 12 credit hours of General Education courses by having the appropriate GPA and postsecondary ready test scores for SAT Reading or ACT Reading/English or PERT Reading/Writing or Grade 10 FCAT 2.0 Reading. To continue after 12 credit hours, students must have a postsecondary ready math test score.

  • Students must be postsecondary ready in Reading* and have an eligible postsecondary math cut-score to enroll in MAC1105, MGF 1106, MGF1107 or higher math courses. (Review the Postsecondary Ready Test Scores on a College Placement Test on the next page.)
