What is Dual Enrollment?

Dual Enrollment allows high school students to take college level courses while earning college and high school credit.

Students must be enrolled in a participating Georgia high school or approved home-study program. 11th and 12th graders or returning 10th graders are eligible to take any approved course. New 10th graders may take career courses listed on the Course Directory or have required SAT or ACT scores to take core courses. Eligible 9th graders may participate. However, there is no state funding available for 9th grade students.

Students not eligible to receive Dual Enrollment funding may still participate and self-pay for Dual Credit Courses. Once students have exhausted the 30 hours of Dual Enrollment funding, they may elect to receive the Hope Career Grant for approved courses.
