Dual Enrollment Overview
Dual enrollment gives students the opportunity to meet high school graduation requirements while also earning college course credits. Dual enrollment students take approved college courses through approved college institutions. The cost of college tuition is covered by the dual enrollment program. Students are, however, responsible for course-specific supplies (lab goggles, lab coat, etc), and fees that are incurred throughout enrollment (late registration fees, lab fees, etc).
Revised Eligibility Requirements
Dual Enrollment is open to 11th - 12th graders enrolled in high school, who are accepted by a state public or private post-secondary institution. Some 10th graders may be eligible to take limited classes at technical institutions only. Individual colleges may establish additional participation requirements, such as minimum GPA or test scores.
For more information about state eligibility requirements: Dual Enrollment Eligibility
Roswell students can participate in Dual Enrollment courses three ways:
- Take Georgia Tech Math at Roswell HS (depending on enrollment and for students beyond AP BC Calculus)
- Full Time: Take all courses on the college campus/virtually through the college (12 - 15 college credit hours)
- Part Time: Take some courses at Roswell and some on a college campus/virtually through the college
