Welcome to Dual Enrollment!
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 at SC Virtual College for selected high school students. This program has been developed to give students the opportunity 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 a total of 45 instructional hours plus an exam. Dual Enrollment Students have the same rights and responsiblities as any other student on our campus.
Each student is required to complete an application for admission into the General Studies Certificate program via the FDTC college website at www.fdtc.edu. All students must submit a signed permission and communication waiver form by their high school principal, home-school principal, and their parents or guardians. A signed lottery waiver form is required for students taking at least 6 credit hours. All Dual Enrollment Students must also complete the Declaration of Citizenship or Legal Presence in the United States Form. Print and complete the documents listed above. Then, submit the signed documents to the Dual Enrollment Office located in Room 100A of the 100 building on the main campus.
All high school students are required to pay for their textbook(s) and tuition. Please note that college fees, course fees, and technology fees may be applicable. Lottery Tuition Assistance is available for high school dual enrollment students to help offset the costs of tuition when an approved student is taking at least 6 credit hours.

Furman University will not accept college courses taught on a high school campus. If a student is planning to attend a public or private college in SC or a college outside of SC, please contact that institution regarding transfer courses.
