If you have questions, contact EFSC's Dual Enrollment Office at 321-433-7152 or 321-433-5155 or email email@example.com.
Step 1: Determine if you're eligible for Dual Enrollment.
Home education students must be in the equivalent of 10th, 11th, or 12th grade. Students in grades 6 – 9 must have successfully completed at least two high school level academic courses with a B or higher.
A college-ready reading and writing score on the ACT, SAT, ACCUPLACER NG or PERT is required to participate in Dual Enrollment. For Early Admission or to take a college credit math course, students must also present a college-ready math score.
Students should determine with their parent if they meet the minimum test score requirements for Dual Enrollment.
Step 2: Apply for admission to EFSC.
- Complete the High School Dual Enrollment Online Application. EFSC waives the application fee for dual enrollment students. Review the Dual Enrollment Application Process in PDF format.
- Home education compliance: Students must be a resident of Brevard County with the student’s home education program registered with the Brevard County School Board. Before processing the student's Application for Admission, the College is required to verify with the Brevard County School Board that the applicant's program meets state home education requirements.
Step 3: Complete the required EFSC Dual Enrollment Orientation.
You must have completed the online Dual Enrollment Orientation to register for your EFSC classes. To complete this requirement, log into the myEFSC portal. Refer to your acceptance letter for your Student ID and initial password. Find the EFSC Student Application section (on the left on a desktop computer). Click the down arrow on the Application menu; scroll to “Dual Enrollment Student Orientation” and click “Launch”. When you have completed the last section of the Orientation, be sure to click the submit button.
Step 4: Complete the College Placement Testing Requirement.
Students are required to submit college placement scores in reading, writing and mathematics to enroll in college credit courses. Approved tests include the ACT, SAT, ACCUPLACER NG and PERT. Scores may not be more than 24 months old.
If you have qualifying SAT or ACT scores and did not have them sent electronically to EFSC, then you will need to log into your SAT or ACT account, download your scores and submit in the myEFSC Portal using the Student Document Dropbox for Admissions.
Students without SAT or ACT scores may also test through EFSC. View the placement testing options, which include the online ACCUPLACER exam or the on-campus PERT offered at the Cocoa, Melbourne and Palm Bay Assessment Centers.
IMPORTANT – EFSC Retesting Policy: Students must have college-ready reading and writing scores to participate in EFSC’s Dual Enrollment Program. A college-ready math score is not required unless the student plans to take a college-level math course such as MAT 1033, MAC 1105 or MGF 1106 or to apply for Early Admission.
Students who do not score college-ready in one or more subject areas on the PERT, may retest two more times within twelve months of the initial testing session so long as there are 30 days between each testing appointment. While there is no charge for the initial placement test, there is a $10 retest fee for each subtest taken for a second or third time within this 12-month period. Once the 12-month period is completed, the testing cycle will begin again, with the college administering the PERT once at no cost to the student and two more times with a retest charge of $10 per subtest.
Step 5: Schedule the required "First Time in College Advising Session" with your assigned advisor.
Log in to your myEFSC portal to see the name of your assigned EFSC advisor in the Student Services Appointment section. Click the appointment box to schedule your advising session. You may also email the advisor directly to set a date. Important: Your record will show a “registration hold” until this requirement is met.
Step 6: Fill out the EFSC Dual Enrollment Registration Form and Articulation Agreement.
Once the student has completed the admissions and testing process, the home school
parent must complete a Home Education Dual Enrollment Registration Form & Articulation
Agreement in order for the student to register for classes. You can email firstname.lastname@example.org for a copy. Provide all requested information, including selected program of study,
grade level, and desired EFSC courses. NOTE: Students must meet all program and course
prerequisites and are limited to 3 courses or 11 credits per major term unless they
are in the Early Admission program. Students are limited to one course in the summer. View more details about this form.
Step 7: Register for Classes.
Visit the Registration Process web page that explains how to register for courses remotely.
Students may schedule an advising appointment online. Begin by logging into myEFSC, then look for the box labeled Student Services Appointments and using the information in that box to make an advising appointment.
Fees: Students are responsible for paying the $10 per semester Wi-Fi/Print Access Fee. If the student intends to park a vehicle on campus while attending class, the student must purchase the annual $40 parking permit. The permit is valid from July 1 through June 30. To avoid receiving a traffic citation and fine, purchase the parking permit by the end of the first week of classes and park only in student designated areas.
