Dual Enrollment

New Dual Enrollment Funding Regulations Effective Summer 2020

  • All 10th graders are eligible to enroll in approved Career, Technical, and Agricultural Education (CTAE) courses listed on the Course Directory at TCSG institutions only and receive dual enrollment funding for these courses. 
  • Any 10th grader with a minimum 1200 SAT score or minimum 26 ACT composite score in a single national test administration are eligible to enroll and receive funding at any participating USG, TCSG, or private postsecondary institution in any approved courses listed on the Course Directory.

GHS Dual Enrollment Process 

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

1. Attend one of the monthly dual enrollment information sessions with your parent/guardian. Register HERE for a session.

4.  Submit the Student & Parent Participation Agreement (Dual Enrollment Contract): 

New for the 2020-2021 school year, the student and parent participation agreement is completed online through your GAfutures account. This is the application your counselor will use to approve your schedule. This agreement is completed one time a year. If you are applying to multiple colleges for dual enrollment or haven’t yet decided on a college for dual enrollment, pick all that you are considering. Students will have to provide a parent email for parents to complete their part of the agreement. Completion of this participation agreement allows Gilmer High School to complete your funding application so colleges can receive payment for your dual enrollment classes.
