What are the eligibility requirements for enrollment as a high school student?
A student must:
- Have a minimum of a 2.0 unweighted GPA and be on target for graduation. Some programs have more stringent, program-specific admission requirements.
- Have good attendance and discipline records.
- Be mindful that co-enrolled or dual-enrolled high school students will be held to the same behavioral and performance standards as adult students at CTC.
Achievement of these eligibility requirements must be documented prior to a student's enrollment in a program.
How are career dual enrollment courses weighted by the school district?
Section 1003.437, F.S., specifies that school districts and Florida College System institutions must weigh dual enrollment courses the same as Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate, and Advanced International Certificate of Education courses when grade point averages are calculated. In addition, many of the co-enrollment courses at CTC are weighted as Honors-level courses when grade point averages are calculated.
What are the cost-saving benefits of earning Industry Certification through Career and Technical Education Programs?
Earning Industry Certification that leads to post-secondary credit through Career and Technical Education programs can save families hundreds, or even thousands of dollars in college tuition and fees. There is no cost for Industry Certification exams for students who are co-enrolled or dual enrolled at CTC.
