    Dual Enrollment
    Broward County (SBBC) sponsors the many Dual Enrollment Programs offered to our students. This program gives high school freshmen, sophomores, juniors and seniors a unique opportunity to enroll in courses to earn high school and college credit. To be eligible for the program, students must have an unweighted cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or higher and appropriate SAT, ACT, or CPT scores. Courses are offered at Stranahan High School as well as BC's campus locations. Dual-enrolled students do not pay the BC registration, matriculation, or textbook fee because they are receiving high school credit for the courses. The classes are taught by professors committed to academic excellence and rigorous standards. Dual enrollment courses not offered by BC may be taken at other institutions with which SBBC has dual enrollment agreements. Currently, dual enrollment agreements are in place for BC, FAU, UF and FIU.

    Please contact our School Counseling Office for more information 754-323-2199. 

     

    Dual Enrollment Guidelines 2019-2020

    To qualify for Dual Enrollment (DE), students must meet the minimum test score and grade point average (GPA) requirements for the institution to which they intend to take courses.  This information may be found on our Broward College Dual Enrollment page. 

    The District currently has DE articulation agreements with Broward College (BC), Florida Atlantic University (FAU) and the University of Florida (UF).

    In high school, students should take seven instructional classes (and one personalization period) each semester on an AB block schedule and four instructional classes each semester for 4x4 block schools.

    Early Admission guidelines remain the same for the 2019-20 school year.
