Online Dual Enrollment FAQs

General Enrollment

What is online dual enrollment?

It’s an opportunity for high-achieving high school sophomores and above 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?

No. Online dual enrollment courses have set begin and end dates that match the college schedule. Each term is 12–15 weeks long. View dates and deadlines for more information.

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 sophomores or above who

  • have earned at least 6 high school credits,
  • maintain a high school GPA of 3.0 or above (3.25 for students with fewer than 12 credits), and
  • have achieved an ACT composite score of 18, CLT total score of 55 (62 if taken prior to April 26, 2023), SAT total score of 960, or the required score on any of the college readiness assessments approved by the Florida State Board of Education (high scores on PCC placement exams may waive this requirement).

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?

PCC’s Admissions Office can give you more information about your options. You can give them a call at 850-478-8496, ext. 8717, or email info@pcci.edu.

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

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 6 credits allowed for the program? Or is there a separate fee?

Dual enrollment courses cost $120 per credit hour plus a $30 Access and Technology Fee per course. 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. View graduation requirements to know what is expected.

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 email or by letter sent to the following address:
Pensacola Christian College
P.O. Box 18000
Pensacola, FL 32523-9160

A $10 drop fee will be charged. Tuition and fees are nonrefundable and nontransferable once the term begins. There will be no academic penalty for courses dropped prior to the last week of the term.

Can semester-only students still have access to this?

Yes, online dual enrollment is available to all students who meet the qualifications for online dual enrollment.

Can I have a full-year high school enrollment and a one-semester college enrollment?

Yes. See each term’s dates and deadlines.

Will I still need to take a minimum of 4 credits with Abeka Academy my senior year to get the diploma from ABA? If so, would the online dual enrollment classes count toward those 4 courses?

A minimum of 4 credits in your senior year will need to be taken in order to receive a diploma from Abeka Academy. This is in addition to any online dual enrollment courses that you decide to take. View the suggested high school plan of study for reference.

Will my ABA tuition be reduced if I am taking classes through PCC?

Will the dual courses allow me to opt out of math, science, or history requirements at PCC?

Online dual enrollment courses earn college credit at PCC. A PCC admissions counselor will contact you after you have applied for online dual enrollment and can guide you as to what course would be best for you to take based on your anticipated major.
