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 wishing to apply to this program must be approved by appropriate high school or home school officials. Eligibility for participation is set by a written agreement between UNF and the school district, private school, or home education student and parent or legal guardian.
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 semester. All dual enrollment courses taken through UNF must be approved by the appropriate school officials. Public school, private school, and home education students planning to participate in dual enrollment should do so in close consultation with their high school counselor to ensure that the courses meet at least one of the following criteria:
- UNF general education requirements,
- prerequisite or lower-division requirements for the student’s intended major, and/or
- substitution or 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(es). Per Florida Statute 1007.271, all dual enrollment courses must be applied toward the student's high school graduation requirements.
All applications must be received before the posted admissions deadline in the Dual Enrollment section of the UNF Application Deadline webpage.
To qualify for dual enrollment, a student must:
- submit an online application and a signed UNF Dual Enrollment application (public or private school applicants) or a completed/signed Home Education Dual Enrollment Articulation Agreement and Application (home education 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 SAT scores taken within the last two years,
- submit passing scores for the appropriate placement assessment as may be required for math, English, or language courses,
- satisfy any course prerequisites.
Dual enrollment students register for classes each semester during open registration on a space-available basis. Before registering each term, students must submit an application, an updated high school transcript, and a signed "terms of agreement" form. All course prerequisites must be satisfied before registering.
Tuition and most fees are waived for Dual Enrollment students taking courses at UNF that can also be used for high school graduation. UNF does not provide textbooks or other course materials.
