COVID-19 Remote Dual Enrollment Process

Due to the COVID-19 worldwide epidemic, the registration process for dual enrollment is being done remotely.

Below are the steps for dual enrollment registration.

— Complete the Polk State College online admission application.

— Submit official scores from an approved placement test.

PERT, ACT, or SAT scores are acceptable. Official scores must be sent directly to Polk State College from the respective testing agency. PERT scores are accessible to the College from the PERT Testing Repository and are considered official, so students do not need to request PERT scores. Your scores cannot be older than two years from the first day of the semester you plan to attend.
