Dual Enrollment: Class Selection Tips
All students must take American Literature, typically during 11th grade / Junior year. If you register for Language Arts at college and take English 1101 and or 1102 which is usually called Advanced Composition, those classes will ONLY count for Senior Language Arts. They will not count for American Literature. You may take American Literature at college. However, some colleges require that you have prerequisites (usually English 1101 and 1102) completed before you are allowed to take American Literature. Be sure and check the college website or the list of classes offered on GAfutures.org.
You must have completed Algebra II or Accelerated Geometry at Parkview before you will be allowed to take any math class at college. Also, many colleges require that you take a math placement test before you are allowed to register for a math class. Check the college website for more information.
If you want to register for your fourth required science class at college, be careful of the course numbers and classes you choose. If you take the first semester of Biology (26.01200), first semester of Chemistry (40.05100), or the first semester of Physics (40.08100), those classes will not count as your fourth Science. You may take the class if you choose, and it will still go on your Parkview transcript; however, you will need to continue and take the second semester of that same science class. The second semester class will count as your 4th required science. You can also decide to take another science class on the GAfutures.org course directory if you prefer. For example, Astronomy, Earth Science, and Anatomy, would all count as a fourth science.
You are required to take World History, U.S. History, Economics (1 semester), American Government (1 semester) to graduate from Parkview. If you take Economics at college, you can take Intro to Economics, Global Economics, Microeconomics, or Macroeconomics (45.06100). If you want to earn credit for American Government, the class at college must be American Government (45.05700, 45.0A484), not Political Science or any other Social Studies course.
Please note that because the required Gateway exam covers U.S. History, if you are a rising Junior / 11th grader taking U.S. History for the first time, you are encouraged to take 2 semesters of U.S. History at all colleges except Georgia State University. Georgia State University students can take Survey of U.S. History / History 2110. It covers all of the standards from the high school U.S. History course.
Payment/Tuition for classes
Only courses listed on the GAfutures.org course directory will be funded. Students are allotted funding for a maximum of 30 credit hours.
Tenth graders must score a minimum of 1200 on the SAT or 26 on the ACT to be eligible to take academic classes at a college or university. If you do not achieve this score, you will only be eligible to take CTAE (technical) classes at a technical college. Speak to your counselor before registering for dual enrollment as a 10th grade student.
