Florida College’s faculty are excited for the opportunity to teach dual enrollment classes and connect with high school students.

“I want high school students to have this opportunity and to be encouraged by the experience to come to Florida College as a full-time college student,” says Dr. Doug Barlar, Music and Fine Arts professor.

Bailey Ross, Mathematics instructor, believes students should consider the dual enrollment program even if they don’t yet have a solid academic plan.

“If high school students already know they want to go to college, even if they aren’t sure what they want to major in, then eventually they will need to develop college-level academic behaviors and expectations,” she says. “Dual enrollment not only gives students more time to learn and practice mature academic behavior, but it also rewards their effort with real college credit.”

High school students who are interested in dual enrollment can fill out an application today. New students can contact Colleen Engel in Admissions with any questions. Returning students can reach out to Beth Roth in the Registrar’s office.
