What is Dual Enrollment?
Dual Enrollment is a program where a student 16 years or older may attend North Georgia Technical College while also attending high school. Students can earn college credit and high school credit at the same time.
Why should I consider Dual Enrollment?
Dual Enrollment can shorten the amount of time it takes to complete a professional Diploma or Technical Certificate of Credit. Not only do you save time, but you can save money!
Who is eligible for Dual Enrollment?
What classes can I take?
Students take occupational courses (like Welding, Automotive Technology, Cosmetology, or others) approved by the Technical College System of Georgia and the Georgia Department of Education. Check with your high school counselor or contact the NGTC High School Coordinator for more information.
How much does it cost?
Dual Enrollment students do not pay for tution, fees, or books!
Currently, the HOPE Grant pays for Dual Enrollment classes. Any remaining tuition and fees are covered by North Georgia Technical College. Books are provided by NGTC through a lending program. Courses taken through the Dual Enrollment program do not count against HOPE Scholarship or HOPE Grant hours. You can apply for the HOPE Grant at www.gacollege.411.org.
NOTE: Students cannot Dual Enroll during the summer semester. Instead, check out the Joint Enrollment option.
