So, what is Dual Enrollment?
Dual Enrollment is a process through which high school students take courses from a state public or private postsecondary institution while still enrolled as a high school student and receive credit both at the high school and at the postsecondary institution
(DOE Board Rule 160-4-2-.34).
Two-thirds of Georgia high school students are aware they can enroll and take college credit classes at one of Georgia’s technical colleges while still in high school.
Among students in grades 9 to 11, nearly six in ten express an interest in taking classes at one of the state’s technical colleges while they are still in high school.
