Congratulations on taking steps to become a dual enrollment or early admissions student!

Your school counselor can help you to determine eligibility, discuss course options, and complete an application. Visit the Seminole State College (SSC) or University of Central Florida (UCF) Dual Enrollment/Early Admissions page for information and other helpful resources.

Dual enrollment course offerings are limited to approved courses at SSC and UCF. Students must receive prior approval from their principal or principal designee to enroll.

Things to Consider

Courses not taken at SSC or UCF are not covered by the Dual Enrollment/Early Admissions Agreements and therefore are not eligible for tuition and instructional materials reimbursement by SCPS. This includes talent identification programs, college summer programs, summer camps, and courses at schools other than SSC or UCF.

Students must complete all requirements for graduation from a Seminole County Public High School before a diploma will be granted. An overall un-weighted 2.0 GPA is required for high school graduation.

Courses taken through dual enrollment or early admissions are a part of the official college/university transcript as well as the calculation of the college/university grade point average.

Students may not withdraw from any college credit course without written permission of the high school principal or designee. Failure to notify the high school may jeopardize high school graduation.
