IMPORTANT: In December 2011 Florida State Rule 6A-10.0315 was amended. The rule now limits the number of attempts a high school student can have on the placement test (P.E.R.T.) to a MAXIMUM OF 2 ATTEMPTS. This new rule overrides all previous dual enrollment rules that allowed students to have 3 attempts on the test. The college is working with the school districts to change the testing process for dual enrollment students.
ATTENTION - Effective July 1, 2010: Dual Enroll students are required to be in the 10th – 12th grade (this is for Volusia and Flagler County students) and can be public, private, or home school students.

Federal privacy laws related to dual enrollment: If a student is attending a postsecondary institution – at any age – the rights under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) have transferred to the student. However, in a situation where a student is enrolled in both a high school and a postsecondary institution, e.g. dual enrollment, the two schools may exchange information on that student. If the student is under 18, the parents still retain the rights under FERPA at the high school and may inspect and review any records sent by the postsecondary institution to the high school
