Dual Enrollment

The Dual Enrollment program provides opportunities for eligible students in grades 10-12 to enroll part- or full-time in post-secondary institutions and take college courses to earn both high school and college credit. 

  • For students who attend a school within the Technical College System of Georgia, tenth-grade students can participate in limited program courses, but eleventh- and twelfth-grade students are eligible to participate in academic and program courses.
  • For students who attend a school within the University System of Georgia, eleventh- and twelfth-grade students may participate, but only tenth-grade students who meet House Bill 444 eligibility requirements can participate.
  • To participate in dual enrollment, students must do the following:
    • Complete all associated forms with their high school counselor;
    • Meet the admissions requirements at the post-secondary institution of their choice; and
    • Make satisfactory academic progress. 

Approved courses for Dual Enrollment are listed in the Dual Enrollment Course Directory

The courses a student chooses each term must be listed on his or her dual enrollment application and must be approved by his or her high school and the post-secondary institution he or she will attend. Students who meet all eligibility requirements will receive a student-specific award amount to be applied to tuition, mandatory fees, and books. 

Courses do not count against any maximum hourly caps for the Helping Outstanding Pupils Educationally (HOPE)  scholarships or grants.  Withdrawing from a course, not attending a course, or not following program rules and regulations may result in students being removed from dual enrollment, thus affecting their high school graduation requirements. Students must make annual progress towards graduation and completion of their individual graduation plan to participate in dual enrollment.
