High School Students And Dual Enrollment
The dual enrollment program is the enrollment of an eligible secondary student or home education student in a FAMU course creditable toward high school completion and an associate or baccalaureate degree (F.S. 1007.27). Students who are eligible for dual enrollment pursuant to this section may enroll in dual enrollment courses conducted during school hours, after school hours, and during the summer term. However, if the student is projected to graduate from high school before the scheduled completion date of the FAMU course, the student may not register for that course through dual enrollment. Such a student may apply to FAMU and pay the required registration, tuition, and fees if the student meets the admissions requirements under F.S. 1007.263.
To be eligible, the student must be currently enrolled in a secondary school operated by Leon or Gadsden County School Board. The student must possess a grade point average of 3.0 or better, appropriate test scores, and be classified as a high school junior or senior. Students will be enrolled at no cost to either the student or the district. To remain eligible, the student must obtain a 2.0 grade point average in university course work. Students in Leon or Gadsden County public high schools interested in dual enrollment course work should consult their guidance counselor for further information
