Creekside High School Offers Dual Enrollment Courses through St. Johns River State College. Students who are eligible are allowed to take Dual Enrollment courses at Creekside as well as on St. Johns River State College campus.
What is Dual Enrollment (grades 9-12)?
Dual enrollment is a program where eligible high school students attend college classes and earn high school credit and college credit at the same time. The credits that students earn must be applicable toward high school graduation and acceptable toward an Associate or Baccalaureate degree. When a student is Dual Enrolled they can take up to 10 college credits.
What is Early Admissions (seniors only)?
Early Admissions is a type of dual enrollment that has the same eligibility requirements as dual enrollment. The difference between the two programs is that the student is not enrolled in any other curriculum besides the dual enrollment courses. The student attends the college full-time. As a result, students need to have identified their major or at least a general field of study because they will be earning a significant number of college credit hours towards their AA degree. When a student does Early Admissions they are required to take a minimum of 12 college credits and up to 16 college credits.
DISCLAIMER: students can only participate in Dual Enrollment for either 60 college credit hours or 3 years – whichever comes first.
What are the benefits of dual enrollment?
1. Saves parents and students money because tuition and lab fees are waived.
2. Shortens time to earn a college degree.
3. Offers challenging courses.
4. Gives students the opportunity to earn high school credit and college credit at the same time.
5. Awards students with college credit that is transferable to any Florida public college or university.
Who is eligible for Dual Enrollment?
1. Students who have an overall unweighted 3.0 grade point average.
2. Students that have appropriate scores for the SAT, ACT, CPT, or PERT exams.
3. Permission from a parent or guardian and your high school guidance counselor.
4. Students that understand the amount of work necessary to succeed in dual enrollment will be greater than in high school courses.
Note: Student must maintain a 3.0 GPA in high school.

CPT testing Information
St. Johns River State college will be on Creekside’s campus to administer the CPT exams for any student wishing to participate in Dual Enrollment for the 2018-2019 school year. In order to sign up for the test on a specific day, a Dual Enrollment application must be completely completed and turned into Ms. Fornera by the deadline date. The college will only test 75 students per test session and we will test based on a first come first serve basis.
Students can pick up a Dual Enrollment application in guidance on Mrs. Hemmer’s desk. Below are the test dates and deadlines (Deadline means the completed application MUST be turned in by the date indicated below. If a test session is already full, then the student will be moved to the next test session). It is recommended to turn in an application sooner rather than later as the test sessions fill up rather quickly.
|CPT TEST DATE||APPLICATION DEADLINE|
|Tuesday, January 16, 2018||Friday, December 8, 2017|
|Monday, January 22, 2018||Friday, December 15, 2017|

Students will be notified 1 week prior to the test date where they will test. Students will be notified via the email address they placed on the DE application of what date they are testing on, the time and the room location at Creekside.
