Northwest Florida State College Dual Enrollment Checklist

Northwest Florida State College’s Dual Enrollment program provides the opportunity for qualified high school students from Walton County, who meet the eligibility criteria specified in their district’s governing articulation agreement, to enroll in college courses while simultaneously enrolled in a Walton County public high school.  Students receive both high school and college credit for these courses.  Dual Enrollment students are exempt from tuition, matriculation, student access card fee and laboratory fees, and textbooks are provided by the district.
