Dual enrollment in USFSM classes is open to academically qualified students currently enrolled in a public high school in Sarasota County who are recommended by their principal or designee.  Dual enrollment students may take a limited number of courses at USFSM which are creditable toward their high school diploma.

Students wishing to enroll in the Dual Enrollment coursework at USFSM must:

  1. Have at least Junior standing at a Sarasota County public high school or approved entities at the start of the term in which they wish to enroll.
  2. Submit proof of a minimum of 560 on SAT Evidence-based Reading and Writing and a 530 on SAT Math, or a score of 21 on ACT Reading and 21 on ACT Mathematics, or a PERT score of 123 on Math, 106 on Reading and 103 on Writing.
  3. Have an unweighted, recalculated high school grade point average of 3.30 or better on a 4.00 scale and satisfied any course prerequisites. The GPA is recalculated from courses completed in English, Mathematics, Natural Science, Social Science, and Foreign Language.

Dual enrollment students who enroll in summer courses are required to pay for all costs for that term.
