College Courses for High School Students

Dual Enrollment is a statewide program for high school students to enroll with fees exempted for students in college courses to earn college credit and credit toward high school graduation simultaneously. The Florida dual enrollment program was created by Florida statute and is governed by state law. It serves public, private and home-schooled students.

More than 50,000 high school students in Florida participated in dual enrollment at the state’s 28 state colleges last year, earning over 577,000 semester hours of college credit. Northwest Florida State College has provided dual enrollment opportunities for more than 25 years to thousands of students.
