High school students have the opportunity to earn college or technical credit at PHSC by applying for admission as dual enrollment students. Students from Pasco or Hernando County public schools and students from nonpublic schools (including home schools that have certified their curriculum meets State of Florida standards) may become eligible for dual enrollment if their school has a formal articulation agreement with PHSC. High school dual enrollment means the student is enrolled in high school and simultaneously enrolls in college or specific technical credit courses, taught by PHSC, which are counted toward high school graduation.
