Steps to Apply for Dual Enrollment at GHS

GHS Dual Enrollment Process  

**RETURNING STUDENTS 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.

General information about the dual enrollment program will be covered. This allows students and parents the opportunity to get an overview of the program. After attending an information session, students wishing to pursue dual enrollment may schedule an appointment with Mrs. Stover to continue the process. 

2. Confirm your eligibility for the program (Age, HOPE GPA and SAT or ACT scores)

New dual enrollment funding regulations in effect from Summer 2020 forward (see top of page). Chattahoochee Technical College is no longer accepting 9th graders for dual enrollment courses.

Once you have confirmed you meet age, GPA, and test score requirements, take the following steps:

3. Create or update your GAfutures profile

Make sure you have an account on   If you don’t have an account, create one.  

Make sure the email address in your 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. 

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 application allows GHS to approve your schedule and is completed once 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. A parent email must be provided 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.
To complete this step, log into your GAfutures account, scroll down to Trending (will be on the right side), and select Dual Enrollment Application 2020-2021. Click Apply Now.
