Bethune Cookman University Dual Enrollment

Step 1: School Board students who are interested in enrolling in the B-CU Dual Enrollment Program must have an initial meeting with their parents and school counselor to discuss program participation.

Step 2: The school counselor will review the initial requirements for the program with the student to ensure that the student has the minimum 3.0 unweighted high school G.P.A requirement & test scores.

Step 3: If the student has the required G.P.A and the minimum SAT or ACT scores, he/she must obtain a copy of his/her school transcript to verify test scores and must include a copy of their test scores in the completed dual enrollment application packet.

Step 4: If the student has the required minimum G.P.A, but does not meet the minimum SAT or ACT test requirements, they are to contact the B-CU Deltona testing center at: (386) 481-2163 to schedule a time to take the ACT Compass Placement Test.  Personal identification is required at both locations.  Students should include their test results in their completed application packet after testing.

Step 5: Once it has been determined by the school counselor that the student has the required G.P.A and test scores, students may submit the completed application at the B-CU Deltona campus, located at: 1555 Saxon Blvd., Deltona, FL  32725.  A complete application packet includes a Dual Enrollment Admissions Form, copy of high school transcript, and test scores and MUST include all required signatures.

Step 6: After submitting the application to the Office of Admissions, students should consult with their school counselor and parents to select their college courses from the approved course list. Courses may also be found at:  www.cookman.edu/dualenrollment.
