    Georgia’s Dual Enrollment Program provides funding for students who are dually enrolled at a participating eligible public or private high school, or home study program in Georgia, and a participating eligible postsecondary institution in Georgia. These students take postsecondary coursework for credit towards both high school graduation or home study completion and postsecondary degree, diploma, or certificate requirements. The program is offered during all terms of the school year: fall, spring and summer semester or fall, winter, spring and summer quarter.

    Students have the opportunity to take college courses to simultaneously satisfy high school graduation requirements while earning college credit. If you are a Georgia resident, you may qualify to participate in dual enrollment. Georgia’s programs, administered by the Georgia Student Finance Commission, provides eligible students with awards for their tuition and approved fees, for eligible college courses taken prior to their high school graduation. The tuition and eligible fees are paid for by Georgia's Dual Enrollment program.

     

    Steps to Dual Enrollment:

    Step 1: Consult with your high school counselor and review UNG's dual enrollment website.

    Step 2:  Apply for admission online: GAFutures. If you cannot apply online, download a paper application. The application fee is waived for dual enrollment applicants.

    Step 3: Ask your high school to send us your official high school transcript, either directly from the high school to us in a sealed envelope, or electronically through GAfutures.  

    Step 4: SAT and ACT test scores must be sent electronically through the College Board or ACT. Test scores printed on high school or college transcripts will not be accepted. You may request the College Board to send your SAT scores to account #5497, or your ACT scores to account #0848, regardless of which campus you want to attend. Test scores printed on high school or college transcripts will not be accepted.

    Step 5:  Submit your verification of lawful presence documentation if you wish to pay in-state tuition. This is not required if you pay out-of-state tuition. Out-of-state tuition is much higher than in-state tuition. Admission to UNG is not contingent upon proof of lawful presence.

    Step 6: Continue to monitor your application status as you are completing steps 1-5 to ensure we have received all required documents. Check your application status.

    Step 7: Complete the Dual Enrollment program application required by GSFC to process program funding.

    Step 2:  Apply for Dual Enrollment Admission.  Visit online at Dual Enrollment Admissions Process – Lanier Technical College.  The application fee is waived for dual enrollment applicants.

     

    Step 3: Transcript Request.  Submit a request to your high school to send us an official in-progress transcript directly from the high school by email, through an electronic service such as Parchment or GAfutures, or via mail in a sealed envelope.

     

    Step 4:  Provide appropriate placement scores.  We will review your high school in-progress transcript for placement. 

    • High school GPA of 2.00 for students seeking entry to certificate or diploma programs of study.
    • High school GPA of 2.60 for students seeking entry to associate degree programs of study

    If your high school GPA does not meet the placement requirements listed above, we can consider the following: 

    • Validated assessment scores on SAT, ACT, PSAT, or PreACT if the scores meet the college program’s required minimums.  These required minimum scores can be found here:  DE-Readiness-Scores.pdf (laniertech.edu).
    • If using an SAT or ACT to satisfy placement, the official scores must be received directly from the testing agency.  
    • Please NOTE:  If you complete an AP Exam and want to use it as a pre-requisite to a course you want to enroll in, you must request the official AP scores by mail from the testing agency.  
    • Although not required, students are encouraged to send all scores from all testing sessions. We evaluate applications each time updated information is received.
    • Lanier Technical College will evaluate the highest SAT, ACT, PSAT or ACCUPLACER test scores. 

    Step 5: Check your Application Status:  Link:  Lanier Technical College (site.com) - Your admission status reflects your outstanding documents required for your application. You can review what information is needed and what documents have been received.

     

    Step 6Check your email. Lanier Technical College will send a variety of emails to the email address provided on the application. These emails will include important information about your next steps. 

     

    Once you have been accepted to LTC, we will only relay information to your student email address.  This will be the official means of communication once accepted.  Instructions on how to setup your email account will be sent with your acceptance email.  You may also review our website for further instructions on setting up your LTC resources.    

     

    Your acceptance email will have the steps to follow for registration of classes.  You must follow these important steps in order to secure your course schedule.  Acceptance to the College does not mean you are registered for courses.  Registration is a separate process than acceptance.  

     

    All programs and courses are on a space available basis and some programs may have limited space wherein a waitlist may be established.
