"Homeschooling FAQs" #8
**Disclaimer: All information presented on this blog is based on our best understanding of current homeschool laws in the state of Florida at the time of each posting, and in particular the homeschool laws for Hillsborough County, where Class Source is located. However, we are not legal experts, and the information posted in this group does not constitute legal advice. Homeschool laws can vary by county and state. If you are uncertain of the homeschool regulations and requirements in your area, please verify using your local resources. The HSLDA website has a resource which allows you to look up homeschool laws by state, and is a good place to start: https://hslda.org/legal.**
This week's FAQ is:
Can homeschoolers dual enroll?
Yes! Many of the families in our Class Source community make use of dual enrollment to get a jumpstart on college credits. You may also qualify for free textbooks and more. You will just need to check the specific requirements for each college, as some have restrictions based on needing to dual enroll on a college campus in the same county you live in, or have GPA requirements or other stipulations. You can find an info sheet on dual enrollment from the Florida Department of Education here: http://www.fldoe.org/core/fileparse.php/7709/urlt/dual-enrollment-faq.pdf.
There is also a great Facebook group which provides info and support for homeschoolers who are dual enrolled or considering dual enrollment: https://www.facebook.com/groups/FLHomeschoolersDualEnrolled/.
