Admissions Steps

Thank you for your interest in Chattahoochee Technical College’s dual enrollment program.

The Dual Enrollment Program allows qualified high school students the opportunity to maximize their education and career training by taking courses that earn college and high school credit at the same time! Students must be enrolled in the 10th, 11th, or 12th grade at an eligible public or private high school, or home school program in Georgia, and the College.

Students are permitted to take up to 15 credit hours per semester; dual enrollment funding will pay for up to 30 semester credit hours per student. *Note: State Legislation is subject to change, which could impact dual enrollment participation, eligibility, and funding.*

Students in 10th grade are only permitted to take CTAE/Occupational course and are not allowed to take CORE classes unless qualifying ACT or SAT scores are received. GSFC’s GAfutures website provides a list of funding course categories differentiating CTAE and CORE classes.
