What is online dual enrollment?

It’s an opportunity for high-achieving high school juniors and seniors to get ahead by taking online college courses and earning college credit while still in high school.

Will I have a full 12 months to complete an online dual enrollment class?

Would I be able to get an extension to finish both/either enrollment(s)?

Extensions up to six months are available with your Abeka Academy courses. College courses must be completed by the term end date.

How early (grade level) can I start taking online dual enrollment classes?

Dual enrollment is open for rising juniors or seniors who

What if I meet all of PCC’s requirements except for the ACT, CLT, or SAT score? Or what if I haven’t taken one of those tests yet?

Can I take a summer enrollment for online dual enrollment, or only a full enrollment?

Beginning Fall 2020 for Abeka Academy accredited students, courses are available in the fall, spring, and summer terms.

If I don’t plan to attend PCC, can I still participate in the online dual enrollment program? Will I be able to transfer the credits I earned with PCC to another college?

Yes. Students planning to transfer credits to another institution are responsible to confirm whether courses meet the institutional and specific degree requirements of the transfer institution.

Is the cost included in the six credits allowed for the accredited program? Or is there a separate fee?

Dual enrollment courses cost $170 per credit hour. View a current list of tuition and fees and see how our payment plan works to make dual enrollment courses even more affordable.

Will the online dual enrollment course conflict with my plan to march in the graduation ceremony?

Enrollment in online dual enrollment courses should not conflict with your plan to march in the Abeka Academy graduation ceremony. Additionally, your Abeka Academy Online Dual Enrollment Advisor will work with you to ensure that you are on track for graduation.

Are there deadlines for the college work to be turned in?

Like your high school classes, online dual enrollment courses have set begin and end dates. But they follow a college schedule, separate from Abeka Academy’s.

Can I drop an online dual enrollment class if it becomes too difficult? Will there be any academic penalty?

To make sure dropping a course won’t affect your high school graduation requirements, Abeka Academy will need to grant permission. You’ll also need to notify PCC of your request in writing by e-mail or by letter sent to the following address:
Pensacola Christian College
P.O. Box 18000
Pensacola, FL 32523-9160

Will the weighted GPA scale be altered to reflect an online dual enrollment class similarly to how an honors class is altered?

Online dual enrollment courses do not receive a weighted value from Abeka Academy.

Do the online dual enrollment courses follow grade level requirements or only class requirements (for example, if Precalculus can be taken as online dual enrollment, is it available only for those who take online dual enrollment as a senior, or can any online dual enrollment student take the course?)

Prerequisite: At least “C-” in MAV 131 or place into MAV 221 on the algebra/calculus placement exam.
