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 during the fall and spring semester and up to two college courses during the summer semester. A dual enrolled student will still be able to take classes on Creekside’s campus.
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 per semester. An early admissions student will not be allowed to take classes on Creekside’s campus.
DISCLAIMER: students can only participate in Dual Enrollment for either 60 college credit hours or 3 years – whichever comes first.
