The 3-1-1 Program is a time-shortened degree program designed for students interested in pursuing an Associates degree at FLCC after high school graduation.  High school seniors simultaneously complete their senior year of high school and freshman year of college at a reduced cost.  At the end of the program, students will have completed 3 years of high school; one year of combined high school and college; and one year of full time college study culminating with graduation from FLCC.  Upon graduation students can transfer to four year institutions. 

High school seniors take FLCC college courses at their high school through the Gemini Program.  Students also travel to the College or its campus centers to take additional part-time college courses at their convenience.  Upon high school graduation, students will matriculate to FLCC with sophomore status.  

Eligibility Requirements

  1. Students must take Accuplacer and place into ENG 101 even if they are taking another type of English course (Ex. AP, IB, SUPA).  Students have 2 chances to take and pass the Accuplacer exam.  After which, if they are not successful, they will not be allowed to participate in the program.
  2. Students must have a minimum overall GPA of 80% at the end of their junior year.
  3. Students must complete a minimum of 12 credits through a combination of Gemini, articulated, and on-campus courses.  On-campus courses and Gemini courses cannot exceed 11 credits, as students will have to pay full-time tuition.
  4. If a student decides to withdraw from the program, they will not have the option to pay for articulated courses after the Gemini registration deadlines.
  5. To receive college credit for articulated courses, a student must attend FLCC as a full-time matriculated student immediately following high school graduation.

The 3-1-1 program offers a savings of more than 40% of FLCC’s traditional costs. Courses through the Gemini Program are offered at a reduced cost.  All courses taken on the FLCC campus are at the current part-time tuition rate.  Students may utilize a payment plan, however, financial aid is not available while students are still in high school. 

Disclaimer: It is the prerogative of the receiving institution whether to accept transfer credit and how it will be applied.  All students should keep a portfolio of their work and consult with their anticipated future college before taking a college course.
