You can be a college and high school student...at the same time.
Dual Enrollment provides high school students with the opportunity to take college courses for both college and high school credit. Students interested in Dual Enrollment are encouraged to talk with their high school counselor as early as possible to ensure all deadlines are met. Students, parent/guardians, and counselors should together carefully assess whether Dual Enrollment is a good fit for the student. Students should be aware that college courses are typically more rigorous than high school courses and move at a faster pace. Also, Dual Enrollment courses result in real college credit and the grades become a part of the student's permanent college record. Grades earned through Dual Enrollment could impact future eligibility for college admission and scholarships as well as high school graduation.
- Provides students with an easy transition and an early start to their college careers
- Earning college credits while still in high school may enable students to graduate early and/or possibly even earn an associate degree
- Helps students adjust to certain aspects of the college experience (e.g., classes, coursework, instruction, being on a college campus) so the transition from high school to college may be easier
- Flexible scheduling opportunities with classes and access to the college’s resources and amenities
- College tuition and expenses are fully or mostly paid, which saves the parents/students money and time
- Participating in a dual enrollment program demonstrates a student’s ability to handle more difficult coursework which is something college admissions officers may look upon favorably during admissions and recruiting
Albany State University welcomes any high school student attending a public, private, or home study program in Georgia to participate in the Dual Enrollment (DE) Program. DE will pay full tuition and fees for students enrolling in approved courses. Course related fees are also the responsibility of the student. This does not come out of a student’s HOPE hours. Tuition and other expenses are the responsibility of the student if non-approved courses are taken.
