High school is the perfect time to explore your options at Eastern Florida State College, whether it’s planning for future enrollment once high school is done or getting a head start by taking college courses now. Eastern Florida offers several Accelerated Education Programs designed for currently enrolled high school students.
Dual Enrollment is the most common, allowing qualified public, private and home education students in the 10th, 11th, and 12th grades to enroll in selected college and vocational credit courses offered by EFSC. With Dual Enrollment, the postsecondary credits that are earned count toward both a college degree or certificate and a high school diploma. High school seniors can even take their senior year courses to earn their H.S. diploma at EFSC through our Early Admission Program, which still allows them to take part in sports and clubs at their high school and get a jump start on college credits.

- Career & Technical Education (CTE)/Advance Standing: Students who have recently completed approved CTE programs at Brevard Public Schools may be eligible to receive Eastern Florida State College credit at no cost. EFSC and Brevard Public Schools have established agreements in specific technical programs that allow students to receive accelerated college credit in related college technical program areas. CTE/Advance Standing Credit allows students to avoid duplication of course content. CTE/Advance Standing Credit agreements are designed for students who are working toward an associate in science degree, a college credit certificate or a Career and Technical Certificate. Students must petition the college Registrar within three years of high school graduation to have CTE/Advance Standing credit placed on their college record. View the high school to college credit agreements for more information on this option. You can also view the Brevard Public Schools' CTE website and learn more about programs of study that help current high school students meet graduation requirements while including CTE courses.

To attend after you complete High School:
If you want to attend EFSC after graduation, and have never taken a class at the College, you should apply following the steps for a first time in college student.
Once you take a course at Eastern Florida State College as a high school student, such as through dual enrollment, you are also an Eastern Florida student. If you continue your education at EFSC after high school graduation, you do not submit a new application for admission. Instead you need to:
- Download and complete the Florida Residency Declaration for Tuition Purposes and submit with your residency documents to your primary campus.
- Request your final, official high school transcript to be sent to your primary campus.
- If you did receive an associate's degree through dual enrollment and want to continue on to an EFSC Bachelor's program, you will need to submit an application for that bachelor's level program.
- If you are an inactive student at EFSC for one or more years, you will need to reapply using EFSC's Online Application System and supply any college transcripts you may have from other colleges.
If you are a graduating high school senior, you may be eligible to register for summer term courses at EFSC before the College receives your final transcript with graduation date. Brevard Public School students should contact their high school guidance counselor to discuss the process and form required to register pending final transcripts. Private school and home school students should contact EFSC Admissions to discuss the potential options. Tuition payment is due by the fee deadline. For summer term financial aid options, visit the EFSC Financial Aid summer aid web section.
