Effective May 26, 2020, PHSC suspended common placement testing for DE eligibility through the 2020 fall term. In response to COVID-19, the Florida Department of Education released Emergency Order No. 2020-EO-02. The order suspends the testing requirement “for student eligibility for initial enrollment in college credit dual enrollment (DE) courses taken through December 31, 2020.”  

Common placement test scores found on the PHSC Student Testing and Placement Chart may still be used for eligibility and placement consideration if administered prior to May 26. Common placement testing will resume for dual enrollment prior to spring registration.

Beyond the required 3.0 unweighted GPA, additional dual enrollment eligibility requirements for college-level courses are under review. This includes accessible and fair alternative methods for eligibility. If approved, students will have more options to meet the eligibility requirements for initial and continued enrollment through the fall term.
