• Florence-Darlington Technical College provides academic courses at Florence Career Center.  This program has been developed to give students the opportunity to begin their college education, while still in high school. The student may be eligible to receive both college and high school credit for each course satisfactorily completed. In addition, high schools set the schedule which best suits the needs of their students. Each 3 credit hour course must be taught for a total of 45 instructional hours plus an exam. Students have the same privileges as any regular 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 permission form signed by their high school principal or home-school principal and parents or guardians, a signed communication release form, and a signed high school lottery waiver and scholarship form prior to enrolling in the college.

    All high school students are required to pay for their textbook(s) and tuition; however, the college fees and the technology fees are waived. Lottery and Early College scholarship funds are also available for high school dual credit students to help offset the costs of tuition when an approved student is taking more than one course within a term.

    Click on the documents listed above, print and complete. Then, submit the signed documents to the Early College office located in Room 100A of the 100 building on the main campus.
