    Dual Enrollment
    Broward College (BC) and the School Board of Broward County (SBBC) jointly sponsor a Dual Enrollment Program. This program gives high school juniors and seniors a unique opportunity to enroll in courses at BC for 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 and FIU.

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