High School Student (Dual Enrolled)

Students in grades 9-12 attending a public, private, or home studies program in Georgia may take college classes while still in high school.  Most students earn college and high school credit for courses taken at NGTC.  These classes help fulfill graduation requirements at the student’s high school or home studies program. 

Dual Credit (college and high school credits)

  • Dual Enrollment –The Dual Enrollment program replaces prior dual credit programs in Georgia.  Students receive college and high school credit for either academic core or technical classes.  Full-time and part-time schedules are allowed.  Students may take classes during the Fall, Spring, and Summer Semesters.  The Dual Enrollment program covers tuition, mandatory fees, and books.

Other programs

  • High School Postsecondary Graduation Opportunity-Students who complete 10th grade with the required courses (two English, Math, Science, Social Studies; one Health and PE and required tests) may enroll full-time at NGTC while completing an Associate Degree, Technical Diploma or two Technical Certificate programs in a career pathway.  Once the program is complete, students may graduate with a high school diploma and a college credential.
  • Joint enrollment – Students receive college credit only for technical OR academic courses taken at NGTC.  Classes are NOT used for high school credit.
