What is Dual Enrollment?
The Dual Enrollment Program at St. Johns River Community College provides eligible high school juniors and seniors the opportunity to earn both high school and college credit at the same time. Eligible students can take one or more college-level courses which will qualify for high school graduation credits as well as college credit.
How does Dual Enrollment help me afford a college education for my son or daughter?
Students enrolled in Dual Enrollment courses pay no tuition fees for a Dual Enrollment course and are provided textbooks free of charge. Some fees may not be covered, such as individual online accounts and lab fees. The student who successfully completes one or more Dual Enrollment courses will receive both high school credits for graduation and college-level credit. The college-level credit will transfer to any state funded university or community college in Florida, to most private colleges in the state, and to many out-of-state institutions of higher learning. This means your student will have a head start on the courses he or she will need in the pursuit of a degree which will also provide you a significant savings. Please note, St. Johns County does not cover textbook/computer account fees.
