Registration

To register for dual enrollment courses at the SJR State campus, students must complete a “Dual Enrollment Packet” and turn the completed documents in to the BTHS guidance desk by the published deadline. The packet includes 1) Admissions form, 2) Principles of Participation form, and 3) Registration/Approval form.

The dual enrollment application students complete for the BTHS campus business academy course(s), the American History course(s), or the English and Writing course(s) CANNOT also be used to register for SJR State campus course(s). A separate dual enrollment packet will need to be completed for any course(s) taken at a SJR State campus and turned in to the BTHS guidance desk by the published deadline. The three course maximum applies regardless of what campus(es) a student enrolls at to complete dual enrollment courses.

Make sure forms are thoroughly filled out, including a correct and legible email address that you monitor regularly, parent & student signatures, and course section numbers and titles. The back of the “Dual Enrollment Admissions Form” requires an emergency contact that cannot be the same address where the student lives. Attach the PDF printout of your written score reports from your ACT/SAT/PERT to your application. A PDF download of your SAT and/or ACT scores can be found via your online CollegeBoard and/or ACT account. The document must contain your first and last names.

Notice About Deadlines
Dual enrollment program deadlines are not negotiable. Students must meet the deadlines for Registration, DROP/ADD, Withdrawal, and all other deadlines published by SJR State and Bartram Trail High School. Failure to meet the deadlines means the student will forfeit the opportunity to participate and/or make adjustments within the dual enrollment program term.

SJR State Calendar
The SJR State calendar does not necessarily follow the St. Johns County Public Schools calendar. It is important for students to plan to participate in all dual enrollment course requirements according to the SJR State calendar. It is published on the SJR State website.

 Tracking your Account
Once you are confirmed as a dual enrollment student it is your responsibility to log into “MySJRState” on a regular basis to monitor your class status, grades, classes, deadlines, and policy guidelines. You can set up your account by going to http://sjrstate.edu and clicking on “MySJRstate.” The first time you log on, click on the user acceptance policy agreement to get your SJR State ID. Online courses can be accessed under the “MyCourses” tab in “MySJRstate.” If you have any questions about “MySJRstate” please call 1-888-757-2293 or access the web help link.

Course Schedule
When selecting college campus courses, please keep the following in mind:

  • Which SJR State Campus is offering that specific section of the course?
  • What time of day/evening is the course?
  • Will you have enough time to drive to/from your high school campus for the course?
  • Your BTHS high school courses must be taken in consecutive class periods. You may NOT drive to-from-to the BTHS campus to participate in dual enrollment.
  • If you are an athlete or involved in activities that may take you away for meets or events during the week, can you still attend every dual enrollment course session? If no, don’t sign up!

 College and High School Credit Values
When picking dual enrollment courses, it is important that students understand that the credit value of each course is determined by the State of Florida. A completed dual enrollment course will have a predetermined credit value in the State University and Community College system and a predetermined high school credit value. Most dual enrollment courses earn students .5 high school credit or 1.0 high school credit. This information is posted in the Department of Education Dual Enrollment Course Equivalency List, and it is updated annually on the Department of Education website. The dual enrollment Course Equivalency List is also posted in PDF format on the BTHS web site. Please review this information and contact your BTHS school counselor with any questions.
