Accel Program for Dual-Enrollment Students Georgia Student Finance Commission GSCA Fall Conference November 10, 2004. ACCEL Program AGENDA. Purpose of Accel Program Eligibility Requirements for Participants Length of Eligibility Application Process Award Amounts Situations (Q&A).
There is no minimum or maximum number of hours required for participation in Accel.
Mrs. Jones calls to inquire about her daughter’s possible eligibility for Accel. The family members are citizens of Canada; the father is here on a work Visa; daughter here on a student Visa. Last year, the daughter participated in PSO. Is she eligible for Accel?
A student must be a U.S. Citizen or a non-citizen who meets Title IV eligibility requirements. Work Visas and student Visas do not meet the qualification of an “eligible non-citizen.”
Mrs. Johnson calls, asking how Accel will pay for her son’s courses if he participates in Accel? Do we send the money to her so she can pay the college?
GSFC cannot disburse funds directly to students/parents. After the college verifies the student’s eligibility to participate in Accel, the college will invoice GSFC. Then GSFC will send the funds to the college, and the college will apply the funds to the student’s account.
Mr. Price calls to find out how his daughter can receive her book allowance from Accel.
Is the student attending a public institution or a private institution? If the student is attending a private institution, there is no book allowance! If the student is attending a public institution, the parent/student should contact the Financial Aid Office at the institution to inquire about the distribution of the book allowance.
Ms. Hall calls to ask if there is a minimum high school GPA requirement or minimum SAT score that the student is required to have to be eligible to participate in Accel.
Accel does not require a minimum high school GPA or SAT/ACT score for participation. However, the student’s high school may establish a minimum standard. Also, the college may require a minimum standard for admission or participation (970 SAT).
Sally Student calls. Her high school counselor has told her that since she did not participate in Accel during Fall Semester 2004, she cannot participate during Spring 2005. Is this true?
While Accel doesn’t require that a student participate all year, the high school may have determined that the student will not have the required number of units (Carnegie units) for high school graduation if he/she does not participate in dual enrollment during all terms of the academic year.
Ms. Jenkins’ child (a senior) attends a private high school that is HOPE-eligible. Can her child receive Accel for the term beginning in January 2005?
Effective January 2005, students at eligible private high schools will be able to receive Accel at an eligible public or private college. (Students at public high schools may receive Accel at an eligible public or private college during Fall 2004.)
Mr. Williams has a son who is a junior at Milton High School. He is interested in the types of courses his son can take at Georgia Tech and take advantage of Accel. Is there a Course Directory?
