Public School Students

Step 1: Complete Dual Enrollment Application

Complete the SCF Early College Application for Admission form. After the application is complete and reviewed the student will receive a Welcome Email with their SCF credentials. (Required for new students only)

Step 2: Submit placement testing results

Students must submit official college placement scores in Reading, Writing and Mathematics to enroll in college credit courses. Approved tests include the ACT, SAT, and PERT (Florida’s Postsecondary Education Readiness Test). Scores may not be more than 24 months old. PERT Testing for Early College purposes may be taken only once per term and twice per calendar year.  

Students may request their SAT scores from the College Board:  https://www.collegeboard.org/https://student.collegeboard.org/

Information regarding ACT scores can be found on the ACT website:  http://www.act.org/content/act/en/products-and-services/the-act/your-scores/send-your-scores.html

SCF’s school code for ACT is 0741 and SAT is 5427. Students can use this to ensure scores/transcripts are sent directly to SCF.

Students who do not have ACT, SAT or PERT scores, may schedule a testing appointment for the PERT at SCF- Assessment & Testing Center.
