Dual Enrollment provides opportunities for high school students to enroll in post-secondary institutions to earn both high school and college credits simultaneously. Approved college on-line courses can also be taken that meet high school graduation requirements. Funding for Dual Enrollment is provided through the local school system’s equivalent (FTE) program count as determined by the Georgia Department of Education. Summer school is now allowed for Dual Enrollment participation.
