Dual Enrollment for High School Students

The Indian River State College Dual Enrollment program allows eligible students to simultaneously earn high school credit (toward their high school diploma) and college credit toward an Associate Degree or Baccalaureate Degree, or credit toward a career training certificate for an eligible course. In 2018–19, 98% of IRSC dual enrollment students earned college credit while in high school, and 329 graduated with an Associate Degree from IRSC—55% with honors!—at the same time they graduated from high school.

Eligible students may take Dual Enrollment courses, free of charge, at any of the five IRSC campuses, online through the IRSC Virtual Campus, and at many Indian River, Martin, Okeechobee and St. Lucie County high schools.

Upcoming Dual Enrollment Information Sessions

Pre-registration is required. Fill out the online form, and select from the sessions listed.

Types of Dual Enrollment

Through the IRSC Dual Enrollment program, public, charter, private and home education students get a jump on college, saving both time and money. Dual Enrollment students are exempt from application fees, tuition and laboratory fees, and public and home school students receive required textbooks at no charge.

Articulation Agreements

Indian River State College has articulation agreements with schools in each of the four Treasure Coast counties.

Private Schools

Counselors should consult the Dual Enrollment Handbook for High School Administrators for information about Dual Enrollment program options offered jointly under the Inter-Institutional Articulated Acceleration Agreements with the school districts of Indian River, Martin, Okeechobee and St. Lucie counties and Indian River State College.

Course Selection

Course selections will ultimately be derived from a process that begins with discussions between the parent, student, IRSC and the Dual Enrollment contact at the high school. Consideration is given to IRSC courses and course outline requirements, parameters of articulation agreements and the relationship between the courses and the student's high school graduation requirements.

Students should review the Dual Enrollment course listing below prior to completing the application and registration process. High school students should become familiar with Academic Plans/Guided Pathways to inform class selection.

Dual Enrollment Application and Registration Process

Eligible students seeking to register for Dual Enrollment classes must complete and return the Dual Enrollment Program Application (IRSC-508) and the Dual Enrollment Registration Form (IRSC-68) to Enrollment and Student Services on any of the five IRSC campuses. Forms must be signed by the high school designee, parent or legal guardian (if the student is under 18 years of age) and the student.

Dual enrollment students must also complete the the online Application for Admission.

Enhanced ACT®, PERT, SATI-Re-centered, or CPT scores must be provided if the student is registering for courses in which placement scores are a pre-requisite.

Once the student is registered, a copy of his/her course schedule and the appropriate copy of the IRSC Dual Enrollment/Early Admissions Registration Card must be submitted to the Cashier's Office on the Main Campus or any IRSC campus for tuition payment. Registration is not final until this step is completed.

Home Education Students

Home education students registering for Dual Enrollment at IRSC must complete the Home School Dual Enrollment Agreement and provide proof of enrollment in a home education program pursuant to Florida Statutes 232.02(4).

Dual Enrollment Requirements

Prior to class, all Dual Enrollment students must complete a short, online orientation (OR10010). The class will be available in Blackboard within 24 hours after registering for Dual Enrollment orientation.

During the first semester of attendance, all Dual Enrollment Associate in Arts Degree-seeking students are required to complete SLS 1101 Student Success (3 credits).

Throughout their studies at IRSC, Dual Enrollment students must maintain a minimum unweighted grade point average of 3.0 for college credit courses and a minimum unweighted grade point average of 2.0 for Career Training clock-hour courses.

Dual Enrollment and Financial Aid

Dual Enrollment classes at IRSC are provided tuition free to eligible students. During the 2017-18 academic year, more than 5,500 high school students were dually enrolled at IRSC saving more than $7 million in tuition for Treasure Coast families.

Students who are taking Dual Enrollment classes at IRSC are not eligible for federal financial aid since financial aid recipients are expected to have earned a high school diploma. It is important; however, to note that your efforts in Dual Enrollment classes may have an effect on your future financial aid eligibility.

Satisfactory Academic Progress

Financial aid offices in every college in the country are required to keep track of every student's academic progress. This measurement is called Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP). SAP at IRSC has three requirements. All of these requirements are cumulative and therefore consider all college-level classes a student has attempted, including high school/college Dual Enrollment classes.

The GPA calculation will include all of your classes. Each grade is assigned a value as follows: A-4, B-3, C-2, D-1, and F-0. When you receive your final grade, that grade value is multiplied by the number of credit hours for that course, and this number is added to similar results from all your other courses. Then that sum is divided by the total number of credit hours you have taken. This is a Grade Point Average (GPA). You must maintain a minimum of a 2.0 or "C" average to remain eligible for financial aid.

The completion rate percentage is calculated by dividing the number of credit hours completed by the number of hours attempted times 100. For example, consider a student who enrolls in six hours and completes only three hours. That student has a 50% completion rate (3 divided by 6 times 100). It is important that students choose courses wisely so as not to withdraw or fail in their coursework.

The total attempted credit percentage calculation is the total number of credit hours attempted divided by the number of hours in the student's program times 100. For example, an Associate in Arts (A.A.) Degree is sixty hours in length. Students will not be eligible for further financial aid after they have attempted more than 90 hours (90/60 times 100). If you take courses which do not count toward your degree, or if you withdraw or fail courses, you may find yourself in this situation toward the end of your degree program.
