An applicant who is a high school junior or senior may take courses while still in high school and earn both high school and college credit. To participate in the Dual Enrollment program, applicants must be enrolled in an accredited public or private secondary high school. Dual Enrollment/Accel students can take their courses at both the Swainsboro and Statesboro locations.
Homeschooled students may be considered for joint enrollment if they are enrolled in Non-traditional Educational Centers that are recognized by GAPSAC or by state departments of education. Students attending non-accredited home school programs or non-accredited high schools may also be eligible to participate in joint enrollment opportunities if they meet all general admission requirements for dual enrollment and have validated their on-track Required High School Curriculum (RHSC) units according to the policy of the institution to which they are applying. Institutions are encouraged to include information about joint enrollment requirements for students from non-accredited home school programs or non-accredited high schools in their catalog and on their web sites.(BOR Handbook Section 3.2.6)
