How Do I Apply For Dual Enrollment

BEFORE YOU BEGIN THE STEPS BELOW:

NEW STUDENTS See Mrs. Stover to schedule a meeting with you and your parent/guardian to discuss the details of the program. 

RETURNING STUDENTS You will meet with Mrs. Stover each semester to discuss your plans for the next semester.

Step 1: Confirm your GPA (see Mrs. Stover), test scores (SAT, ACT, or Accuplacer), and age eligibility requirements. 

Step 2: Update or create a GAfutures account to apply to the college(s) you plan to attend.

You will need your Georgia Testing Identification (GTID) number to create your account. You may see Mrs. Stover to obtain your GTID.
Make sure the email address in your GAfutures profile is one you check regularly. School email will not work, as your school email will not accept external mail.
Make sure your first, middle, last name, DOB, and SSN are entered correctly.
Step 3: Submit your college application for admission through GAfutures.

Log on to GAfutures.org and click on College Planning. Click on College Applications. 
In the Keyword search box, type the name of your college and click GO. Click on Apply and complete all sections of the application.
When you select the application type, make sure you select Move On When Ready, Joint/ACCEL, or Dual Enrollment. 
Once you complete the application, DO NOT enter debit or credit card information, as the application fee is waived for dual enrollment students. The application will submit without payment even though you will receive a message saying the application was not submitted.
