As high school students seek to understand the role of college and its impact upon their future goals, the University of Central Florida offers students an opportunity to enhance this understanding through their participation as Dual Enrollment or Early Admission students. Our program allows high school students who are Florida residents to attend UCF while completing their secondary education. The cost of tuition is covered by the student’s respective school district. However, students will need to speak with their high school guidance counselors or principals to determine if the cost of instructional materials (textbooks) is covered. Home school and private school students are required to cover the cost of their instructional materials.

For eligibility criteria, please refer to Undergraduate Admissions.

Dual Enrollment (DE) students may take a maximum of 6 college credit hours each semester while concurrently enrolled at the high school. These students may be junior or senior status in high school.

Early Admission (EA) students must take a minimum of 12 college credit hours each semester at UCF. These students are seniors in high school. Early Admission students may take a maximum of 15 college credit hours.

The deadlines to apply for admission are:

  • March 1 for Summer
  • May 1 for Fall
  • November 1 for Spring

Upon admission, Dual Enrollment and Early Admission students will receive an official acceptance letter from Undergraduate Admissions. Within this acceptance letter, you will receive a Checklist and a blank Authorization Form. The Authorization Form is a document that will include a list of classes that you plan to take at UCF. It should be completed with the assistance of a Guidance Counselor or Principal.
