The Dual Enrollment Program enables qualified public, private and home education students in the 10th, 11th and 12th grades to enroll in selected college and vocational credit courses offered by BCC. The postsecondary credits that they earn count toward both a college degree or certificate and a high school diploma. Be sure to check the links for Dual Enrollment details for public and private or home school students in the left column.
Students may enroll in up to three courses or 11 credit hours each in the fall and spring terms and two courses during the summer. Qualified 12th grade students who meet dual enrollment eligibility may be considered for full-time dual enrollment at BCC in the spring term if recommended by the high school. Participants in full time dual enrollment must take all their coursework at BCC and enroll in at least four courses totaling 12 or more credits.
Early Admission is a form of dual enrollment that enables qualified Brevard County high school students (public, private and home-school) who have completed their junior year to enroll at BCC for their senior year. Students accepted for Early Admission take all their classes at BCC. Credits count toward a high school diploma and associate degree.
To remain eligible in good standing for any form of dual enrollment, students must meet the overall high school GPA requirement for the selected program of study and earn a term GPA of at least 2.00 in college coursework. In addition students must exhibit responsible and appropriate behavior while at the college and comply with high school and college policies.
