b. Dual Enrollment FAQs

Q. What is dual enrollment?
A. Dual enrollment is an acceleration mechanism available to advanced secondary students that allows eligible public, private and home education high school students to enroll in postsecondary instruction and receive both postsecondary and secondary credit. The intent is to broaden curricular options, increase depth of study options available to students, and shorten the time necessary for completing the requirements for earning a standard high school diploma and a postsecondary certificate. Tuition is waived for dually enrolled students. Enrollment in postsecondary programs is possible on a space-available basis.

Q. Who is eligible to participate in dual enrollment?
A. Students eligible to participate in dual enrollment are those attending a Lake County public high school or a Florida private secondary school, as defined and regulated by State statute (FS1007.271), or those participating in home education programs. All dual enrollment participants must meet the following criteria:

  1. be at least 16 years of age and in the 11th or 12th grade
  2. have a viable career-technical goal
  3. have at least a 2.0 unweighted GPA. All high school students are strongly encouraged to have passed the FCAT prior to dual enrollment
  4. have TABE scores within two grade levels of state mandated exit requirements for completion of the selected program
  5. have good attendance and discipline records

Q. Are there any fees involved?
A. Tuition for dual enrollment students is waived; fees are the student’s responsibility. Books are provided to students attending public secondary schools. Students attending private schools or home education must purchase books. Fees assessed may include tool deposit, lab kit, insurance, etc. Students may also be required to purchase uniforms. Financial assistance is not available for dual enrollment students.

Q. When can a dual enrollment student begin?
A. Start dates are based on several factors. Space availability and program openings are decisions made by Lake Technical College. Public secondary students should talk to their high school counselor who will work with Lake Tech staff to determine the student’s start date. Private school students and home education students may begin with the approval of the home secondary school or parents, respectively.
