Dual Enrollment Options

ACCEL

Programs that provide qualified Georgia high school juniors and seniors with the opportunity to earn college credit while jointly enrolled in a Georgia public high school and a college, university or technical institution. A high school student cannot receive assistance from the Accel Program for postsecondary courses that are part of a technical Certificate or Diploma program of study.
