Dual Enrollment

Dual Enrollment is an opportunity for students to gain college credit while still in high school!

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.
