Dual Enrollment

Your child can earn college credit in high school
Georgia’s Dual Enrollment Program is available to any Georgia student in grades 11 - 12 and gives students the opportunity to earn high school course credits while taking college courses. Students in the 10th grade have limited opportunities to dual enroll and must meet additional eligibility requirements. Please check out the resources below and see your school counselor for more information.
The dual enrollment process can be a lengthy one, so being proactive and starting early is the key to staying academically successful. Students planning to dual enroll in the fall semester should conduct research, meet with their counselor, apply, and take necessary entrance exams early in the spring semester prior to fall of the next school year. Students planning to dual enroll in the spring semester should start the process at the very beginning of fall semester.
A successful dual enrollment student has excellent time management, communication, and self-advocacy skills. Further, the student should be ready to move on to college level classes and be prepared to face academic consequences if they perform poorly at college. Additionally, students should weigh heavily the effects dual enrolling can have on their cumulative GPA, class rank, and college acceptance. For example, reach out to the post-secondary institution you plan on attending after high school and inquire about what their admissions statistics and if dual enrollment is a good idea for your degree program. Lastly, it is important to remember that the college you attend as a dual enrolled student may not have the same holidays or semester schedule as GHS - be sure to keep your calendar or personal planner up to date!
