Dual Enrollment

Dual Enrollment

 

We are pleased to announce an exciting partnership between GOCA High School and Doral College. This opportunity allows qualified students to participate in a dual enrollment program where they can simultaneously earn both high school and college credits while still being enrolled in GOCA High School.
High School classes will continue to take place on GOCA High’s campus with Doral College courses also being offered on campus via an online platform through Doral College. Upon successful completion of these dual enrollment courses, students will receive high school credits and college credit hours.

The College maintains a fully electronic admissions process. Once an application is processed, the applicant will be informed of the decision in writing and if offered admission, will be provided information on next steps for registration and advising.
When a student is enrolled at Doral College and taking classes, all records and transcripts will be kept on file indefinitely. Should a student be offered admission but does not register, or a student be denied admission, student records received will be kept for a minimum of one year.
Doral College offers a rigorous academic program designed to provide the high school student a chance to accelerate his/her collegiate studies. The following requirements apply:

General Requirements

  1. Attend a high school with which the College holds an Educational Services Agreement
  2. Hold an unweighted GPA* of 3.0 or above;
  3. Be recommended for the program by his or her high school principal/counselor;
  4. Provide evidence of college readiness in all areas, as noted in the “College Readiness Tests and Scores” section below.
  5. Complete the application process, including signing an enrollment agreement.

*Students in grades 6-9 who do not yet have a GPA on file may be considered for admission if they have completed at least one high school level course with a “B” average. These students must still meet all other requirements as specified.
