Course Restrictions and Registration Policies

Fall and Spring
Dual Enrollment students may register for a maximum of 8 credit hours within the full term. Students are not eligible to register for part of term classes.

Summer
Dual Enrollment students may register for a maximum of 4 credit hours. Students are eligible to register for courses in any part of term.

General Guidelines
Dual Enrollment students may not register for:

      1. Courses that are less than three credits without a corresponding lecture/lab
      2. Courses that are pass/fail or satisfactory/unsatisfactory
      3. Directed independent study courses
      4. Study abroad courses
      5. Graduate level courses
      6. Courses for which prerequisites have not been met
        • FAU does not record test scores or transcripts for Dual Enrollment students. If you believe you already meet a prerequisite due to exam credit or another college course (not taken at FAU), then you must request overrides directly from the department over the course.

Dual Enrollment students are only permitted to register for four courses within the College of Business

      1. ECO 2013 – Macroeconomics
      2. ECO 2023 – Microeconomics
      3. GEB 2011 – Introduction to Business
      4. ISM 2000 – Introduction Systems Fundamentals

Any class that you register for must be listed on your Permission Form. Updated Permission Forms can be submitted until the last day of drop/add. After drop/add is over, you will be dropped from any classes that are not listed on your Permission Form.

If you withdraw from a course after the drop/add deadline, you will no longer be eligible to participate in Dual Enrollment at FAU.

Prepare for Registration

As a dual enrollment student, you will register yourself for classes once registration opens. Before registering, you must resolve any prerequisites and/or permission requirements.

Check to see if a class has any restrictions by clicking on the course title (either within the Searchable Schedule or on your MyFAU registration page). You should get a pop-up box that has multiple tabs with detailed information about the course. Select the "Prerequisites" or “Restrictions” tab to see what the course requires before you can register. If there are restrictions listed that you do not meet, you will need to reach out to the department or instructor in order to request registration access. Registration permission is not guaranteed for classes in which you do not meet the listed requirements.

If you are planning on taking a math class, you must first take the ALEKS placement test and achieve the minimum scores. For more information, please contact the FAU Testing Center.

Course selections must be approved by your high school. The signed Permission Form is how high schools indicate approval. We recommend listing alternative courses on this form in case your first choice is not available. If you register for courses that are not listed on your signed Permission Form, you will have until the last day of drop/add to submit an updated Permission Form. After this date, you will be dropped from any courses that are not on your Permission Form.

[Return to Top]

Final grades are automatically sent to each high school at the end of every semester. Grades earned through Dual Enrollment will be applied to both your high school and FAU record (transcript).

If you need a copy of your official FAU transcript for college applications, admissions, or any other purpose, you must order them online through your MyFAU account. Please be aware that there is a $10 fee per copy.

   
To order your official FAU transcript:
  1. Log in to MyFAU
  2. Select FAU Self-Service
  3. Select Student Services
  4. Click on Student Reords
  5. Select Request Official Transcript
  6. Follow the instructions on the individual pages 
MyFau

All grades, including a “W” for withdrawal, become a part of your permanent college transcript and may affect subsequent postsecondary admission. Earning a low grade or a “W” in a Dual Enrollment course may result in difficulty meeting future college admissions requirements and financial aid/scholarship qualifications.

If you withdraw from a course after the drop/add deadline, or receive a C- or lower, you will no longer be eligible to participate in Dual Enrollment at FAU. Please note that your grade on the FAU transcript determines dual enrollment eligibility. If your school does not issue “+” and “-“ grades, the FAU grade will supersede your high school’s grade.
