Orientation to Dual Enrollment
The Key to Success
The Focus...
Target Items to Cover
Try on the Roll of a College Student
"There's a growing base of evidence that dual enrollment students do better in college," Hughes says. Students who've taken "dual" classes in high school are more likely to start at four-year colleges and more likely to persist toward a degree. They earn higher grades than similar students who haven't taken such classes.

Katherine Hughes of the Community College Research Center (CCRC) at Teachers College, Columbia University
Bright Idea = Dual Enrollment
Dual Enrollment is:
College courses that count for college
high school credit

Options for Dual Enrollment:
Courses are taken at the high school, or on-line, or as face-to-face

Advantages of Dual Enrollment:
Core dual credit courses transfer to Florida Public Colleges and Universities

Enrollment programs

Create a dual enrollment schedule
Classes have met exempt status (classes have no balance due)
Assigned an IRSC student advisor.

Establish a
Student Success Plan
Together, the student and IRSC advisor will develop a
Student Success Plan,
providing a “map” outlining each step along a path for degree or certificate completion at IRSC. The plan will be recorded online so that it is readily available to the student.

What you should expect as a student and as a parent...
As a Dual Enrolled Student
You are considered a college student first

The grade you earn in the course will follow you from this point forward

Students are held responsible for following all rules of IRSC and their respective high school

It is the student's responsibility to know all important dates and how they affect them - as outlined in the course syllabus

Privacy Policies exist to protect personal information. *Permissions can be made to share personal information by visiting the Records Department.
Let your Syllabus be Your Guide.
What is a Syllabus?
A syllabus should be given to all students detailing the course grading criteria and the student’s academic evaluation.

Students must follow the syllabus; all assignments, testing, grading, etc. are outlined on this syllabus by the instructor of the course. Required texts for the course will be listed on this syllabus. Your high school counselor will assist you on acquiring the correct books for your coursework.

All students are scheduled a professor advisory meeting mid-semester. This allows a student to obtain status and grades and to identify sttengths and weaknesses.

Disputes which arise due to academic issues within the course should first be discussed with the instructor.

If this issue is not resolved to your satisfaction, the student then may bring concerns to the Department Chair, and if needed to continue to the Instructional Dean of the division.
