Dual Enrollment/Early Admit Student Agreement
We are pleased that you have made this academic choice and encourage your full participation in this educational experience. To assure understanding of policies and procedures regarding conduct, curriculum, and communication you are asked to read and abide by the following:
I understand that I will be enrolled in college courses. The depth, breadth, rigor and pace of college courses will be at the college level. While appropriate for college-level study, course materials/class discussions may reflect topics not typically included in secondary courses which some parents may object to for “minors.” Courses are not “brought down” to high school level to accommodate variations in student age and/or maturity. I understand that as a dually enrolled high school student in college courses I am subject to the same standards, policies, and responsibilities as other college students unless otherwise restricted by federal, state or local requirements. I understand that the curriculum content, evaluation, and selection of appropriate instructional materials are the prerogative of the college instructor and will not differ for dually enrolled students from that presented for traditional college students.
I understand that Chipola is an open campus and that I could be attending classes with non-high school aged students and that I may encounter students of a variety of ages and backgrounds while on the Chipola Campus.
I understand that I must agree to abide by all Chipola policies and procedures including but not limited to the Student Handbook, attendance policies and discipline policies as published. The only excused absences are those sanctioned by Chipola College. High school activities are not excused for students enrolled in classes at Chipola.
I understand that college credits earned under this program will be entered on my Chipola College transcript as well as on my high school transcript. The college grading policy will be used for all dual enrollment courses.
I understand that I can participate in the Dual Enrollment Program for a maximum of three years. Classes must be satisfactorily completed prior to high school graduation in order to count as high school credit and be covered by the agreement. Provisional college credit will be granted for work satisfactorily completed and final credit granted after I earn a high school diploma or equivalent.
I understand that if enrolled as an Early Admission student I must enroll and maintain fulltime status and cannot be concurrently enrolled in virtual high school or another college. I can participate in the Early Admission Program for a maximum of one year (equivalent of 12th grade).
I understand that as a Dual Enrollment Student I am responsible for completing the appropriate college forms and meeting college established deadlines for withdrawal and/or resignation from class(es). The college calendar, dates, and deadlines are available in the college catalog, student handbook/planner, and online at www.chipola.edu.
I understand that if I wish to drop, withdraw, or resign from a class I must submit a written request approved and signed by the high school Guidance Counselor to the Admissions and Records Office by the published deadline. Students are not allowed to audit classes. NOTE: Jackson County and Washington County do not allow withdrawals or audits.
I understand that I may not repeat college credit or workforce development courses in which I have earned a grade of W, D, or F until after high school graduation. All grades including “W” for withdrawal, become part of the student’s permanent college transcript and may affect subsequent postsecondary admission.
I understand I cannot re-take classes in which a grade of “C” or higher has been earned.
I understand the Gordon Rule (6A10.030) requires all Florida college students to make at least a “C” in each Math, English, and Writing course; however, all grades are calculated in a student’s GPA and will appear on his/her transcript.
I understand that I must maintain a minimum term and cumulative College grade point average of 2.0. Failure to meet this requirement will result in academic suspension until after high school graduation.
I understand that if I resign from a public high school or receive a GED during the time I am enrolled in this program I will be liable for all fees and cost for that term.
I understand that I am responsible for requesting a final official high school transcript to be sent to the Admissions and Records Office denoting graduation and for submitting official college transcripts from any colleges I have attended.
I understand that I must complete a Residency Declaration for Tuition Purposes after high school graduation. Failure to submit will result in being classified as out-of-state for tuition purposes, which may impact eligibility for Florida Scholarships and a higher tuition rate.
My parent/guardian and I have read and understand this student agreement.
Answer the next two questions. If your answer to any of the following is yes, you must submit a full statement of relevant facts by requesting a Disciplinary Disclosure Form from the Admissions Office. Failure to answer the questions below will delay processing your application. You may be required to furnish the college with copies of all official documentation explaining the final disposition of the proceedings. If your records have been expunged pursuant to the applicable law, you are not required to answer yes to these questions. If you are unsure whether you should answer yes to #1 or #2, we strongly suggest that you answer yes and fully disclose all incidents. By doing so, you can avoid any risk of disciplinary action or revocation of an offer of admission.

Dual enrollment students are not required to complete a Residency Declaration for tuition purposes per F.S. 1007.271. Fees for dual enrollment students are deferred/waived. However, after high school graduation the Residency Declaration must be submitted for tuition purposes. Failure to submit the Residency Declaration will result in being classified as out-of-state for tuition purposes, which may impact eligibility for Florida Scholarships and higher tuition rate.
Chipola College, being a state-supported college, is required to verify the eligibility of students receiving the Florida (Alabama or Georgia) resident tuition rate. The non-Florida resident tuition rate is approximately four times the resident tuition rate. Alabama and Georgia residents meeting the residence criteria may also quality for Florida tuition plus a $1 differential. Each applicant must complete a Residency Declaration form prior to the first day of the semester for which Florida (Alabama or Georgia) residency for tuition purposes is sought or residency cannot be granted for that semester. It is each student’s responsibility to verify that he/she is a Florida (Alabama or Georgia) resident.

State Board of Education Rule 6A-10.044
Your residency status will be Non-Resident for Tuition Purposes and you will be charged out-of-state tuition until the Residency Declaration form is received and verified by the Admissions and Records Office.
