About Dual Enrollment
Pasco-Hernando State College (PHSC) offers college classes to qualified high school students in Pasco County at no cost to the student. These courses allow students to earn college credits while simultaneously earning credits towards their high school diploma. Dual enrollment course grades are recorded on the student’s high school transcript as well as his or her permanent college transcript. Students must be willing to put forth their best efforts in dual enrollment courses since the resulting grades can impact acceptance to a state university as well financial aid eligibility.
According to FLDOE’s Dual Enrollment F.A.Q., “Postsecondary courses taken through dual enrollment will transfer to any Florida public college or university offering that statewide course number and must be treated as though taken at the receiving institution. However, 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 if the course is not offered by the receiving institution.” Private and out‐of‐state colleges and universities may or may not grant college credit for courses taken through dual enrollment.
At least a 3.0 cumulative unweighted GPA and qualifying test scores on the P.E.R.T., SAT, or ACT
