Dual Enrollment

Get high school and college credit at the same time!

Dual enrollment is a program that allows eligible students currently attending Miami Dade County public schools, participating private and charter schools, or home school to simultaneously enroll in college course(s). The credits that students earn at MDC count toward high school graduation and can be applied to a college degree or certificate.

Dual enrollment:

  • Enriches the course opportunities for outstanding secondary school students
  • Shortens the time to attain a college degree or certificate
  • Saves students and parents money, as dual enrollment students are exempt from paying tuition and fees
  • Provides students with college credit that is transferable to a college or university

Important Information Regarding Placement Testing

Due to the COVID-19 crisis, on May 13, 2020, the FLDOE released emergency order 2020-EO-02 which contained guidance for colleges regarding the suspension of placement testing for dual enrollment students registering for 2020 Summer and Fall Terms.  Since the Emergency Order, placement test requests are not processed for prospective dual enrollment students by the MDC testing and assessment departments.

Secondary school students who have not met the placement testing requirement will be eligible to take Dual Enrollment classes at MDC if they meet new criteria that has been mutually agreed upon between MDC and MDCPS.
