    Dual Enrollment (FREE)
    The Dual Enrollment Program at Broward College allows eligible public/charter, private high school and home school education students to earn high school and college credits at the same time, saving both time and money! College courses are offered at Broward College campuses/centers, including the Broward College Online Campus, and at several high school campuses. Eligible students are allowed to enroll in a maximum of 11 college credits per term. Interested students should contact their high school guidance counselor to see if they qualify.

     
    Early Admissions (FREE)
    Early Admission, a form of dual enrollment, allows eligible senior students to enroll full-time at BC as a dual enrollment student instead of attending high school for the senior year.  Students must enroll in 12 credits per term for two consecutive terms and maintain a college GPA of 2.0 or greater. After early admission students complete the fall and winter terms at BC, they will no longer be able to enroll at BC as an early admissions student. Early admission students wishing to matriculate to BC will need to submit their final high school transcript showing the graduation date.

     
    College Academy at BCC Central
    College Academy is a joint venture between The School Board of Broward County and Broward College. Located at BC’s Central Campus, College Academy, offers high school juniors enrolled as full-time students in the program the opportunity to receive a high school diploma from The School Board of Broward County, Florida and an Associate in Arts (AA) degree from Broward College. Additionally, students are afforded the opportunity to qualify for the State of Florida Bright Futures Scholarship Program.

    The College Academy is designed for students who have the maturity required for college campus life and the academic ability to handle the rigor of college work. Both high school and dual enrollment courses are taught on the BC Central Campus. Students take between 12-18 college credits during the fall and winter terms, and approximately six college credits during Session I of the summer term. Students must maintain a 2.5 unweighted grade point average in order to remain at the College Academy.

    For more information about the College Academy at Broward College, contact your high school guidance counselor.
