Dual Enrollment Admission Guidance (COVID-19 response)

Due to the decision made by the College Board and ACT to temporarily suspend testing, as well as the recent news that the Accuplacer-Examity remote test proctoring service will be offline for a period of time, institutions are authorized to evaluate their summer and fall 2020 Dual Enrollment applicants without SAT, ACT, or Accuplacer scores.

Dual Enrollment applicants without test scores must:

§  Provide a transcript showing they are on-track for completing all high school graduation requirements and the USG’s Required High School Curriculum (RHSC);

§  Have at least a 3.0 High School Grade Point Average calculated on the RHSC courses completed; and,

§  Exempt placement in corequisite Learning Support for both English and mathematics.  Dual Enrollment applicants without test scores must meet both of the following to exempt placement in corequisite Learning Support:

·       English: Two units of RHSC English must be successfully completed prior to the start of the Dual Enrollment term; and,
·       Math: High school Algebra II or the equivalent must be successfully completed prior to the start of the Dual Enrollment term.

Students not meeting both of the above may be considered for admission on a case-by-case basis but, if admitted, may not be placed into any English or math course or any course that has English or math as a prerequisite unless they are able to exempt corequisite Learning Support placement in another way.

Institutions may opt to continue to require SAT, ACT, and Accuplacer using established score minimums.  In addition, institutions may accept PSAT scores using the same minimums established for the SAT and PreACT scores using the same minimums established for the ACT.  As is current practice, applicants with test scores must also have at least a 3.0 HSGPA calculated on the RHSC courses completed and must be on-track for completing all high school graduation requirements and the USG’s RHSC.

IMPORTANT: If you make any changes to your course schedule after your Dual Enrollment application has been approved, you must complete a new Dual Enrollment agreement form and have the new course(s) approved by both your high school counselor and the Dual Enrollment coordinator. Students are also not permitted to withdraw from a currently enrolled course without prior approval from their high school counselor verifying if the course will affect their high school graduation requirements. 

Step 2 : Log-in and activate your myEGSC account. Click here for instructions on how to obtain your login and password information. Prior to attending Orientation, you must submit a photo for your student ID online here.

Step 3 : Take a copy of your official college schedule to your high school counselor prior to the beginning of the semester to ensure that your high school class schedule is appropriately adjusted. This can be printed from your myEGSC account.

Step 4 : Attend a Dual Enrollment Orientation. All first-time EGSC Dual Enrollment students are required to attend Orientation as it provides students and their families with a more informed understanding of resources, policies, and new student expectations. Key elements of the program include a sequence of informational sessions for students and parents, training on myEGSC and its applications. Since students have the ability to take their Dual Enrollment classes at their high school or at either the Swainsboro or Statesboro campus, we strongly encourage students to attend the Orientation session most convenient for them. Orientation registration is required and the registration link will be emailed to students that will include the date, time, and location. Parents are also highly encouraged to attend. Both students and parents will be given information about the Dual Enrollment program and East Georgia State College.

I'm a Returning Dual Enrollment student, what's next?

Dual Enrollment students who wish to continue in the program from one semester to the next must first meet with their high school counselor to discuss what courses they need in order to fulfill high school graduation requirements. During the meeting the students must receive a completed Student Participation Agreement from their counselor to guide their advisement appointment at East Georgia. Students must bring the Student Participation Agreement with them to their advisement appointment for registration.
