Thank you for your interest in the Dual Enrollment Program here at Florence-Darlington Technical College. We are so excited to welcome you into the Stinger family! The goal of the Dual Enrollment Program is to give you the opportunity to earn college credit while still in high school. We strive to make the enrollment process as smooth as possible and to provide you with any help and attention you may need throughout your time here.

FDTC provides academic courses at high schools, on FDTC campuses, and online for selected high school students. This program was developed to give students the chance to begin their college education while still in high school. Students may be eligible to receive both college and high school credit for each course satisfactorily completed. Each 3-credit-hour course must be taught for 45 instructional hours plus an exam. Dual Enrollment Students have the same rights and responsibilities as any other student on our campus.
