As more parents choose to homeschool their children in Florida, the state is working to ensure that homeschooled students have access to higher education opportunities. One way this is being achieved is through the Florida Homeschool Dual Enrollment Articulation Agreement.
Dual enrollment allows high school students to take college courses while still in high school, earning both high school and college credit for the same course. This can save students time and money, as they can earn college credit for free while still in high school.
The Florida Homeschool Dual Enrollment Articulation Agreement makes it easier for homeschooled students to participate in dual enrollment by creating a statewide agreement between homeschool programs and colleges. Under this agreement, homeschooled students can participate in dual enrollment programs at their local community college or state college.
To be eligible for dual enrollment, homeschooled students must meet certain requirements, such as having a minimum GPA and meeting college-level course prerequisites. They must also provide documentation of their homeschool program, including a transcript and homeschool evaluation.
The Florida Homeschool Dual Enrollment Articulation Agreement helps to ensure that homeschooled students have access to the same opportunities as their traditionally schooled peers. It also helps to prepare homeschooled students for college by allowing them to take college-level courses and earn college credit while still in high school.
Overall, the Florida Homeschool Dual Enrollment Articulation Agreement is a valuable resource for homeschooled students and their families. By providing a streamlined process for participating in dual enrollment, it helps to ensure that homeschooled students have access to the same educational opportunities as their peers.
