Dual Achievement Funding

Chattahoochee Tech logo

The Dual Achievement Program offers its students both high school and college-level courses. There is no charge for high school, and college tuition is paid for by funding from a different program, Dual Enrollment.

The Dual Achievement Program is separate from Chatt Tech’s Dual Enrollment Program.  However, both programs rely on the same funding source.

Steps to Apply for Dual Enrollment Funding

You will need to apply for Dual Enrollment funding once a year. You will need to create an account with GAfutures.org and be approved by a parent/guardian, and your DAP counselor. You are filling out the application labeled “Dual Enrollment” (even though you are not in Dual Enrollment, the funding for that program also covers the Dual Achievement Program). Once on the website, follow these steps:

  2. Once your account is created, click on “Hope & State Aid Programs”, the first tab in the upper left of the homepage.
  3. Click on the first choice in blue: “State Aid Applications and Forms.”
  4. Click on “Dual Enrollment,” the second link in blue under “State Programs.”
  5. Click on the link in the left-hand column labeled “Application Procedure and Deadline.”
  6. Click on “Apply Now.”
  7. Complete and submit the application
  8. Forward the confirmation number indicating that the application has been successfully submitted to Huber@chattahoocheetech.edu.
