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.
Note: House Bill 444 has passed both the House and Senate as of March 3, 2020. Upon signature by Governor Kemp, the bill will introduce several changes to the Dual Enrollment program to ensure that it meets stated program goals and that it remains financially sustainable. Relevant program updates and information regarding application updates are being developed. 2020-2021 Program Regulations will be available by mid-May, 2020.
