Eligible high school students may accumulate up to 6 college credits per semester in fall and spring through a non-traditional program: dual enrollment. Students who wish to apply to this program must be approved by appropriate high school or home school officials. Eligibility for participation is set by written agreement between the school district, private school, or home school and UNF.
Dual enrollment students are not eligible for UNF Admissions scholarships or financial aid.
A limited number of dual enrollment courses are available in the fall and spring semesters. UNF does not offer dual enrollment in the summer. All dual enrollment courses taken through UNF must be approved by the appropriate school officials. Public, private, and home school students who plan to participate in dual enrollment should do so in close consultation with their high school counselor to ensure the courses meet one of the following criteria:
- Meet UNF general education requirements
- Meet prerequisite or lower division requirements for the student’s intended major
- Substitute for elective hours in the student’s intended major.
In addition, comparable high school courses should be unavailable at the applicant's secondary institution and the university must have space available in the requested class. All dual enrollment courses must be applied toward the student's high school graduation.
All applications must be received before the posted general admissions deadline.
To qualify for dual enrollment, a student must:
- Submit a completed and signed UNF Dual Enrollment application (public or private school applicants) or a completed/signed Home Education Dual Enrollment Articulation Agreement and Applications (home school applicants) Note: Application/Agreement is valid for one semester only. A new application/agreement must be submitted by the deadline every semester the student wishes to participate in Dual Enrollment
- Submit official and current high school transcripts reflecting a 3.0 unweighted high school GPA or higher
- Submit official ACT, CPT, PERT, or rSAT/SAT scores taken within the last two years Note: rSAT is the revised format SAT taken after 3/1/2016
- Submit passing scores for the appropriate subsections of the Florida College Entry Level Placement Test, if the student is requesting an English or mathematics course
- Satisfy any course prerequisites
Dual enrollment students register for classes each semester during open registration on a space available basis. Before registering each term, an application, updated high school transcripts, and a signed terms of agreement form must be submitted. All course prerequisites must be satisfied before registering.
Students admitted for Dual Enrollment will receive a waiver of tuition and most fees for any course taken at UNF that can also be used for high school graduation. UNF does not provide textbooks or course materials.
