Public School Students

Step 1: Complete Dual Enrollment Application

Complete the Dual Enrollment Application by clicking the green "Apply Now" button. After the application is processed the student will receive a Welcome Email with their SCF credentials. If you are a continuing Dual Enrollment student, you will not be required to complete a new application. Applications are valid for three semesters.

Step 2: Submit placement testing results

Students must submit official college placement scores in Reading, Writing and Mathematics to enroll in college credit courses. Approved tests include the ACT, SAT, and PERT (Florida’s Postsecondary Education Readiness Test). Scores may not be more than 24 months old. PERT Testing for Early College purposes may be taken only once per term and twice per calendar year.  

Students may request their SAT scores from the College Board:

Students may request their ACT scores from ACT:

SCF’s school code for ACT is 0741 and SAT is 5427. Students can use this to ensure scores/transcripts are sent directly to SCF.
