2 What s Dual Enrollment? Dual Enrollment is a program that allows eligible high school students to simultaneously earn college credit while earning credit toward a high school diploma.
3 What s Early Admission? A type of dual enrollment where a student enrolls full-time at SJR State, which means that the student is required to take a minimum of 12 credit hours. The student is not taking any other classes besides dual enrollment courses at SJR State.
4 What are the Qualifications for Dual Enrollment? Be classified as a secondary student. 3.0 unweighted grade point average. Be recommended by your high school principal and guidance counselor. Have social & emotional maturity. Have a full set of acceptable SAT, ACT, PERT or CPT scores. Submit your SAT, ACT, and/or PERT test scores with your dual enrollment application. Be a degree seeking student.
5 What are the Benefits of Dual Enrollment? Allowing students to reduce their course load per term when they attend college full time. Improving the transition from high school to college. Allowing students to test the waters of college learning.
6 (cont.) What are the Benefits of Dual Enrollment? Promoting efficiency of learning (reduce repetition of classes). Savings of both time and money. Offset expenses for families. Free tuition and lab fees. Free textbooks for public school students. Shorten the time necessary to obtain a college degree.
7 How Dual Enrollment Differs from other Accelerated Mechanisms? College credit for Dual Enrollment is awarded based on the student s class grade rather than on a standardized test score. Bottom line: If you pass a Dual Enrollment class, you earn college credit.
8 What s the Associate in Arts (AA) degree? The AA degree is the legally recognized transfer degree for the Florida College System and is specifically designed for the student who wishes to transfer into the state university system as a junior.
9 What s the Associate in Science (AS) degree? The AS degree program is intended to primarily prepare an individual to enter a chosen career or profession. It may also transfer to a senior college or university that offers a bachelor s degree in a related field.
10 Will Dual Enrollment Transfer? Yes. Dual Enrollment will transfer especially to the Florida State Universities System (SUS) due to the Florida Common Course Numbering System and the statewide articulation agreement. If students do not, upon high school graduation, attend the same college or university where they earned the dual enrollment credit, the application of transfer credit to general education, prerequisite, and degree programs may vary at the receiving institution. Florida private schools look at the individual course to decide if and how the credit will transfer. For out of state schools and private schools you will need to check with the individual schools to inquire whether dual enrollment credit will be accepted as transfer credit. Dual enrollment courses transfer policies are consistent with transfer policies of postsecondary courses, meaning there is no difference in transfer policies for students who take postsecondary coursework as regularly admitted postsecondary student.
11 What are College Ready Test Scores? To qualify for Composition I (ENC 1101) :
12 What is College Readiness? A student is college ready when he or she has the knowledge, skills, behaviors and cultural awareness to successfully complete a college course of study without the need for remediation To be college ready, students need high proficiency levels on four key areas: Knowledge Key content mastery, including the foundational academic skills such as reading and writing, and the core content of math and the sciences Skills Key cognitive strategies and processes such as problem solving, research, precision and accuracy Behaviors Self-awareness and self-management skills such as goal setting, persistence, study skills, time management, and collaborative learning. Awareness The knowledge of college admission requirements, the ability to select a college that has the student s majors and interests, and the understanding of how to navigate college, including relationships with professors and peers
13 What is Social and Emotional Maturity? Ability to accept one s current limitations and accept help as required. The ability to reflect calmly on one s situation and take measured steps. When a student applies for dual enrollment they are treated as a regular college student. UK Essays: maturity-psychology-essay.php#ixzz3og42oqif
14 What are the realities of College & Dual Enrollment? Students must manage their time and schedules. The college calendar is not always the same as your high school calendar. If the college is open you are expected to attend class. Professors may not collect homework assignments but the expectation is that students understand and can demonstrate mastery of knowledge on tests. the assigned work to be completed and for students to be ready of tests. Students are required to read the subjects assigned by the professor. The reading material may not be covered in class, but it will be on a test. Students must know assignment and test deadlines. Professors do not have to accept late assignments or give makeup tests. It is the student s responsibility to contact the professor if they are having trouble in the course. or missing class because of sickness. The student may have to visit the professor during their office time to seek assistance. In addition. SJR State has tutors available and has Smartthinking, an online tutoring service. General Differences Between High School and College
15 Considerations Become college ready as soon as possible. To get the most out of dual enrollment you need to have a plan. At 30 credit hours, students will need to declare their intended major and intended transfer college or university. Try to determine the different majors you are interested in. Look at the admissions requirements of the colleges and universities you are planning to attend. Look at the requirements (prerequisites and gpa requirements) for your major. Example: College of Business at XYZ university. Take appropriate courses. Preference is planned acceleration instead of random acceleration.
16 Considerations Dual enrollment students need to plan carefully when registering for courses. Do not overwhelm yourself. Take into account the rigor and number of high school courses (high school face to face and Florida virtual) you are taking with your dual enrollment courses. Recommendation is to take no more than 7 courses total. All courses require time and effort in order to be successful. Plan your schedule with enough travel time so you are not rushing to get to the college or back to your high school. When viewing the SJR State online schedule it is important to find courses with meeting times that allow a student enough time for travel to and from the college.
17 Considerations Allow yourself enough time to study. Make sure that you are taking the appropriate number of courses based on the amount of time you have to study. If you cannot devote study time for each course, you are taking a serious risk with your college GPA. General rule of thumb each hour in class requires a minimum of two to three hours of study. If you are struggling in a particular course, then you will need to spend as much time as needed to understand the concepts and to be successful. If you have extracurricular activities or you work, make sure that you plan that into your schedule. You will not be excused from courses and you will likely not have the time to devote to studying. Examples are jobs, sports, clubs, dance, theatre, church, vacation, etc. Determine the number of hours spent at work or on that activity in order to figure out the hours that you have available for attending class and for studying. Know your limitations. It is better to be underwhelmed than overwhelmed.
18 Considerations Dual Enrollment courses are college level courses. These courses will not be brought down to high school level to accommodate variations in student age and/or maturity. Dual Enrollment is the start of your college transcript. Your dual enrollment grades will follow you forever, which can impact admittance into college/university, acceptance into your major, and enrollment into graduate school.
19 Considerations If you earn below a C or withdraw (W), you will not be able to participate in Dual Enrollment. Expectation of 2-3 hours of homework for each hour spent in class. Firm assignment deadlines. Students are expected to handle all communication because they are considered to be a college student.
20 Dual Enrollment Registration Time Frame Dual Enrollment Registration for Fall usually begins middle of June so registration forms are due in late May/beginning of June, unless your high school has an earlier deadline. Dual Enrollment Registration for Spring usually begins in early November so registration forms are due in the middle/late October. Dual Enrollment Registration for Summer usually begins middle of March so registration forms are due at the end of February. The last date to submit a late application (which must include test scores: ACT, SAT, PERT, or CPT) and test scores is 30 calendar days before the semester starts. Ideally, new students would have submitted paperwork approximately eight weeks before the semester starts.
21 SJR State Semester Schedule Fall Middle of August to the second week of December. Spring Second week of January to the end of April. Summer three different sessions: one session begins middle of May to end of June, second session begins middle of May to middle of August, and third session begins the first part of July to middle of August.
22 How Do I Enroll? Talk to your high school s dual enrollment contact and get the dual enrollment paperwork (Application and Principles of Participation). Complete a dual enrollment application (formerly known as the blue form ). When completing the dual enrollment application, the student must use their legal name. For example: No nicknames and include suffixes (Jr., II, and III, etc.). Have test scores (SAT, ACT, PERT, or CPT). You must submit a copy of your official student score report. When submitting test scores, make sure your report has your first and last name. Turn in a dual enrollment application, test scores, and SJR State Dual Enrollment Principles of Participation to your high school guidance counselor. Read and understand SJR State Dual Enrollment Students Responsibilities. Consult with your high school s dual enrollment contact about what classes to take. Turn in dual enrollment registration form to your high school s dual enrollment contact, which must be completed for each semester of participation in dual enrollment.
23 Number of Credit Hours allowed Fall/Spring per semester Regular dual enrollment 10 credit hours Early Admission students minimum 12 credit hours and maximum 16 credit hours Summer All dual enrollment students maximum 8 credit hours for the entire summer.
24 Registration Considerations Dual Enrollment registration forms must be turned in by a specific deadline. These deadlines are usually weeks ahead of the actual start of registration. The Dual Enrollment Office has to have time to process all registration forms. Regular (fee paying) students register before dual enrollment students. Unfortunately, some courses fill up before dual enrollment students can register.
25 Disabilities Accommodations can be provided with documentation, and the student will work with SJR State Disabilities Services to determine what documentation is needed. The accommodations process should begin as soon as possible, in order for the student to receive accommodations in a timely manner. For specific Disabilities Services information, contact the Dual Enrollment Office at
26 Goal of Dual Enrollment To shorten the time it takes for a student to complete postsecondary degree requirements, Broaden the scope of curricular options available to students, And/or increase the depth of study available for a particular subject (
