- Students will start their college career and GPA. Grades earned in DE classes will impact the high school GPA and the college GPA. Both GPAs will be sent to colleges when they complete their application.
- DE students are considered college students. SJR is a separate school from TCHS. Their professors do not communicate with parents or school counselors regarding assignments and grades. The do not input grades in HAC or follow TCHS test retake policies.
- All grades earned are a part of the student’s permanent college transcript. If students struggle in a course and withdraw, they will earn a W on their transcript which can have negative implications for college admissions, financial aid eligibility, and place students on Bright Futures and other scholarship probation once they are in college.

- DE students must be responsible and independent learners. THE STUDENT needs to make sure that they meet ALL DEADLINES (application, test scores, course registration, book rental, etc) by checking for updates in the Dual Enrollment Schoology group and their SJR email daily.
- The student will need transportation to and from the college campus.
- Students need to click the link for SJR Application Guide. It is step by step directions on how to apply to St. Johns River.

If they fail to take a course during the term they applied for, they are no longer a student with SJR and will have to reapply in the next term.
- If students have successfully completed the application process, they will be assigned a X number. This X number is their SJR student number. Students need to write this down and remember it

Students who take DE classes with SJR will not have a 504 plan or IEP accommodations unless they make an appointment with SJR and get approval with SJR. SJR will decide what accommodations are allowed in SJR DE classes.
