    For dual enrollment purposes, high school students may test at the NFC Testing Center or Live Oak Location. Set up an appointment by calling 850-973-9451 (NFC Testing Center) or 386-364-5093 (Live Oak Location) or emailing NFC Testing. PERT Testing at the NFC Testing Center or Live Oak Location is limited to twice each semester.

    The Drop/Add Form must be processed by the Office of Dual Enrollment during the advertised Drop/Add Period for each term. Forms should be submitted by the guidance counselor or Home Education Official. Dropped courses do not appear on the college transcript.

    Students must contact their guidance counselor or Home Education Official to withdraw from classes. The guidance counselor or Home Education Official will submit the Withdrawal Form with required signature to the Office of Dual Enrollment to withdraw a student from the course. Withdrawing from a course after the drop/add period counts as an attempt and a final grade of “W” will be reflected on the student’s NFC transcript.

    All grades, including “W” grades for withdrawal, count as course attempts and become part of the student’s college transcript; they may affect subsequent post secondary admission and financial aid. As dual enrolled, the student is limited to two attempts per course. NFC Academic Calendar

    Dual enrollment courses become a part of a student’s permanent college transcript and are calculated into the student’s permanent post secondary GPA. While appropriate for college-level study, course materials and class discussions may reflect topics not typically included in secondary courses which some parents may object to for minors. Courses will not be modified to accommodate variations in student age and/or maturity. Rule 6A-14.064 College Credit Dual Enrollment.

    Dual enrollment courses will receive the same weighting for the high school grade point average as Advanced Placement (AP), International Baccalaureate (IB), and Advanced International Certificate of Education (AICE) courses. In addition, dual enrollment courses that meet core state university admission requirements in English/Language Arts, Mathematics, Natural Sciences, Social Sciences, or World Languages shall receive the same weighting as AP, IB, and AICE courses in the calculation of the high school grade point average used for admission decisions. Dual enrollment courses must apply directly toward the requirements for high school graduation. All credit not earned but attempted must be entered on the high school transcript. Florida Statutes 1003.4282, 1007.27.

    Approved college courses are specified by the Florida Department of Education’s statewide Agreement of Dual Enrollment. The current Dual Enrollment Course-High School Subject Area Equivalency List is available at:

    Florida dual enrollment college credit will transfer to any Florida public college or university offering the Statewide Course Numbering System course number and must be treated as though taken at the receiving institution. However, if students do not 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. Private and out-of-state colleges and universities may or may not grant college credit for courses taken through dual enrollment
