Dual Enrollment

Dual Enrollment is the enrollment program at the University of North Florida for eligible secondary students and home education students in a university course creditable toward high school and and associate or baccalaureate degree. Students enrolled in university courses that are not creditable towards a high school diploma will not be classified as a dual enrollment student.   



Eligibility Criteria

Students must have successfully completed the 6th grade. 


Students must have and maintain a 3.0 unweighted high school GPA calculated by the University. 


Standardized test score minimums (meeting the minimum standards does not guarantee enrollment):

Students may lose the opportunity to participate in a dual enrollment course if the student is disruptive to the learning process such that the progress of other students or the efficient administration of the course is hindered.


If the student is projected to graduate from the high school before the scheduled completion date of a UNF course, the student may not register for that course through dual enrollment. 


What to Know...

Dual enrollment students are exempt from payment of registration, tuition and laboratory fees.


Applied academics for adult education instruction, developmental education and other forms or precollegiate instructions, as well as physical education courses that focus on the physical execution of a skill rather than the intellectual attributes of the activity are ineligible for inclusion in the dual enrollment program. Recreation and leisure studies courses shall be evaluated individually in the same manner as physical education courses for potential inclusion in the program. 


Instructional materials purchased by a district school board or the University of North Florida board of trustees on behalf of dual enrollment students shall be the property of the board against which the purchased is charged. 


Dual enrollment students are permitted to enroll in a maximum of six credit hours per semester. 


Dual enrollment students are permitted to register for fall and spring terms only. UNF is not currently accepting dual enrollment students for the summer terms. 


Dual enrollment applications are valid on a semester-to-semester basis. Students must reapply for dual enrollment every semester. 


Dual enrollment students are subject to the University of North Florida's policies, procedures and regulations. 


Dual enrollment applicants must satisfy all prerequisites or co-requisites prior to enrolling in courses with the requirements. Refer to the UNF Undergraduate Catalog for complete course descriptions and prerequisite and co-requisite information.
