  3. Directed independent study courses

There are only three College of Business courses that Dual Enrollment students are permitted to take:

  1. ECO 2013 – Macroeconomics
  2. ECO 2023 – Microeconomics

Students who are planning on taking a math class must take the ALEKS placement test and achieve the minimum scores. For more information, please contact the FAU Testing Center .

Course selections must be approved by the student’s high school counselor. Be sure to select some alternative courses in case a first choice is not available.

Students who register for a class not listed on their permission form may be dropped without notice.
