Career and Technical Education (CTE) DUAL ENROLLMENT
Dual Enrollment is an articulated acceleration mechanism, where students enroll in post secondary instruction and receive both post secondary and secondary credit. The Early College Program allows students to pursue an advanced curriculum that is relevant to their individual postsecondary interest. Students will earn credit toward high school completion and a career certificate, or an associate or baccalaureate degree at a Florida public institution.
Career Path: Fulfills credit toward an A.S. degree in select programs. Seminole State College currently offers Early College credit toward the following A.S. Degrees:
- Automotive Service Technology
- Criminal Justice or Construction Management
- Digital Design (Offered at Lyman and Crooms High Schools only)
- Emergency Medical Services
- Fire Science
- Pre-Engineering (Offered at Lyman High School only)
Seminole State College programs allow eligible high school students who are at least 16 years old and have a 2.5 unweighted GPA to earn college credits toward an Associate in Science degree while still attending high school. Students take five classes at their high school and two classes at Seminole State College. Transportation is provided for Seminole County Public School students.
Vocational Path: Fulfills vocational credit toward construction apprenticeships (electrical and fire sprinkler certificates only). Vocational Early College provides secondary students the opportunity to earn post-secondary credit. The students receive credit toward their high school education and post-secondary credit toward their college degree. Tuition and books are free, and free transportation is provided for Seminole County Public School students. Students must be at least 16 years old and have a 2.5 GPA to participate. Students must provide ACT, SAT or CPT scores for college placement purposes for the academic and career path.
