Funding Requirements

Below, you will find the dual enrollment funding limitations that went into effect in Summer 2020.

    • Funding is limited to 30 semester credit hours
    • Limited to Juniors and Seniors
    • Sophomores with 26 ACT or 1200 SAT are eligible
    • Students are not able to receive funding for repeated courses
    • Students who receive 2 withdrawals are no longer eligible for funding
    • Funding is limited to approved courses only
    • Students may choose to self-pay for additional credit hours/courses beyond the Funding Cap of 30 credit hours
    • 9th grade students are not eligible for Dual Enrollment Funding
    • Admission as a Dual Enrollment student does not guarantee eligibility for Dual Enrollment Program funding and students who are eligible for funding may have some expenses. Students are encouraged to review the Dual Enrollment information on the GAfutures.org website to learn more about the funding eligibility requirements and limits.

Important Note: Students planning to receive Dual Enrollment Program funding are encouraged to submit a funding application through their GAfutures account as early as possible so funding eligibility can be confirmed and appropriate course advisement can be provided.

Costs

Students are not responsible for tuition and mandatory non-course-related fees, such as technology, transportation, and student activity fees that traditional students would otherwise pay.

To receive the funds necessary to cover tuition and waive mandatory non-course-related fees, students must submit their GAfutures Dual Enrollment Funding Application prior to the beginning of the term of attendance.

Fees

Students are responsible for any course related fees as well as fees for non-mandatory services such as parking and dining, if purchasing a meal plan.

The program does not cover course related fees or outside reading texts. Students taking a science with a lab will be responsible for a science lab fee. Optional, supplemental, or suggested textbooks are not covered by the Dual Enrollment program and are the responsibility of the student.

Students are also responsible for any proctoring fees if any online exams are being proctored.

Dual enrollment students have access to almost all fee-supported services, including the library, student activities, and even attendance at athletic events. However, dual enrollment students cannot participate in NJCAA Athletics and do not have access to Health Services or the Counseling Center (except in crisis situations or for referrals).

Check Account Balance

To check if any course related fees are due, please contact the Dual Enrollment Coordinator or the Business Office (478) 289-2186.

Textbooks

Students participating in the Dual Enrollment program are provided access to required textbooks for approved courses at no cost. Dual Enrollment students can pick up their books at the EGSC Library.
