Dual enrollment in USF classes is open to academically qualified students who are
currently enrolled in public/charter/private/home schools and who are recommended
by their guidance counselor or principal. Dual Enrollment is an acceleration program
that allows students in grades 6- 12, including home education and private school
students and students with disabilities, to take postsecondary coursework and simultaneously
earn credit toward a high school diploma, a career certificate, an industry certification
or an associate or baccalaureate degree at a Florida public or eligible private postsecondary
institution. Comprehensive information for this program may be found at: http://www.fldoe.org/schools/higher-ed/fl-college-system/academic-student-affairs/dual-enrollment.stml
In accordance with State statutes, students must be enrolled in post-secondary instruction
that is creditable toward the high school diploma to be classified as dually enrolled.
Since Florida State College institutions (State and Community Colleges) are the primary
agencies for Dual Enrollment (DE), a student’s school may approve courses onlyoffered
at the University of South Florida (USF). Note: While students may take up to ten (10) credits each semester, first time DE
students are typically approved for no more than six (6) credits.

is responsible for registering for courses. For instructions on how to register for
courses, go here.
STEP 4: Public school students only: F.S. Section 1007.271(17) specifies that your school
district will pay for "instructional materials." Contact USF's Dual Enrollment Coordinator
one week before the first day of classes. All other Dual Enrollment students must
purchase instructional materials, unless your school has indicated that it will cover
your instructional materials.
STEP 5: If necessary, purchase a parking decal (USF Parking and Transportation Services).
Any questions or problems should be addressed immediately to avoid academic or economic
penalty at a later date. This includes being unable to attend class due to medical
or other documented reasons. All dual enrollment students are required to maintain
good academic standing at USF which is defined as a minimum 2.0 grade point average
at all times. Failure to maintain this academic standing will immediately terminate
a student's dual enrollment status. Grades of D, F or W may not be repeated through
the Dual Enrollment Program.
*This application fee is neither refundable nor waived at USF Tampa.
