The University System of Georgia recognizes the need to provide academically talented high school students with opportunities for acceleration of their formal academic programs. This recognition has led to the development of the dual enrollment option for high school students.
Dual Enrollment is where a student enrolls as part-time or full-time college student following the completion of their freshman year in high school.
