Inter-Institutional Dual Enrollment Articulation Agreement with Florida Institute of Technology
Florida Statute 1007.271 requires a school board and college to enter into an inter-institutional articulation agreement to provide dual enrollment opportunities for eligible junior and senior level high school students. The articulation agreement must be approved and submitted to the Florida Department of Education by August 1, 2017.

The list of changes below highlights modifications made to the 2011-2017 agreement that are included in the proposed articulation agreement.
