What is Dual Enrollment?

  • ​Dual enrollment is an opportunity for students to attend a post secondary institution full-time during their junior and/or senior year of high school. Students that participate will receive high school credit and college credit simultaneously while attending college classes on the college campus, full-time. Approved college on-line courses may also be taken that meet high school graduation requirements. For more information, click here to be directed to the GAFutures Dual Enrollment FAQs document.
