What is Dual Enrollment?

Dual Enrollment (DE) is a Georgia funded program that allows high school students to take college courses that can simultaneously count toward high school and college requirements.

Eligible students must:
• Attend eligible public, private, or home school high schools in Georgia
• Be enrolled in 10th, 11th or 12th grade

  • 10th grade students can participate in DE by enrolling in eligible CTAE courses at a Technical College (TCSG)
  • If 10th graders have earned, in one sitting, either a 1200 on the SAT or a 26 on the ACT, they are eligible to apply for enrollment in any participating DE college and take any approved DE courses.

• Be a Georgia resident (no additional citizenship required)
• Meet college admissions requirements for their DE program
• Meet high school participation requirements specific to Cobb County:
• Be on track for graduation
• Be in good academic standing
• Adhere to all of the policies specifically stated in the Cobb County School District Local School Agreement.
• Must not have already received a high school diploma

Funding and Cost:
• Eligible students receive 100% funding, up to 30 semester hours/45 quarter hours program Funding Cap, for:
• Tuition
• Books
• Mandatory fees
• Funding pays for approved core courses (English, Math, Science, Social Studies, World/Foreign Languages) and Career                 Technical Agricultural Educational (CTAE) classes that are aligned with identified career pathways.)

Impact on HOPE and Zell Miller Scholarships and Grants Eligibility
