General Course Information and Notes
Section 1003.4282, F.S., authorizes the substitution of up to one (1) equally rigorous science credit (EQ) toward high school graduation for a student receiving a passing score on an industry certification examination. Only one substitution per industry certification attained is allowed.
The school district would determine which industry certification exams (passing scores) can yield course substitutions for science. It is important to note that one qualifying industry certification attainment equates to one substitution credit. The eligible industry certifications that are tied to statewide college credit may be found at https://www.fldoe.org/academics/career-adult-edu/career-technical-edu-agreements/industry-certification.stml.
Students who receive a course substitution earn course credit counted toward high school graduation. A course substitution does not factor into a student’s grade point average (GPA).
