About Dual Enrollment
Dual Enrollment is a great opportunity for you to earn high school and college credits at the same time. Tuition is FREE for all high school students that meet the minimum criteria. Books are free if you are enrolled in a public high school. You can take challenging and interesting courses and speed progress towards a certificate or college degree while earning your high school
diploma. Day and evening classes are available during Fall, Spring, and Summer semesters.
Eligible students must:
■ have a 9th -12th grade classification
■ provide Enhanced ACT, SAT, or P.E.R.T. scores that are no more than two years old
■ have a minimum 3.0 unweighted high school GPA for college credit courses
■ have earned at least four (4) core high school credits (ex. English, Math, Sci., etc)
How to Get Started
1. Consult with your high school counselor to confirm 3.0 unweighted GPA and 4 high school core academic credits.
3. Send your qualifying SAT or ACT scores directly to IRSC from College Board or ACT. If you do not have qualifying SAT/ACT scores, you must sign up to take the PERT at IRSC.
4. Read and review the St Lucie County Dual Enrollment Contract. The contract must be signed by the student and parent then emailed to the high school counselor from the parent’s email address.
Any student beginning Dual Enrollment for the first time is only allowed to take two classes their first semester, one of which has to be Student Success (SLS1011). Students and their parent/guardian are also required to sign a contract written by St Lucie County/IRSC which states that if a student fails or withdraws from a class they are immediately removed from the dual enrollment program until they retake the course at their own expense and receive a passing score. Please make sure your school counselor gives you a contract.
