Dual Enrollment

To better help our students prepare for advanced college courses, we've partnered with Barry University to offer a robust Dual Enrollment Program, which will allow students to challenge themselves and test their ability to perform at the college level. 

Through the Dual Enrollment Program, juniors and seniors at Cardinal Gibbons High School have the opportunity to take college-level courses and earn transferable credits. Dual enrollment credits can be transferred to many of the public colleges or universities in Florida, saving you time and money. The program also offers benefits to financial-aid-eligible students who enroll at Barry University, allowing you to secure your college future now!*

How to Qualify & Apply

To qualify for dual enrollment courses, you must be a junior or senior with a 3.5 or better unweighted GPA and have the minimum required scores on an approved college readiness test. All Dual Enrollment students must earn at least an A or B in each of their Dual Enrollment courses in order to remain in good standing within the program and qualify to take other DE courses.
