Dual Enrollment

Dual Enrollment Students

Dual Enrollment program allows high school students to enroll in college level courses. The best part is students get credit for college classes and their equivalent high school course at no cost or very little cost to the student. There is no charge for tuition, mandatory fees, and required books, providing a huge cost savings for parents and students. Students can enroll part time or full time in online or on campus classes.  Albany State University welcomes any 10-12th grader attending a public, private, or home study program in Georgia to participate in the Dual Enrollment Program. Georgia Student Finance Commission will pay full tuition and fees for students enrolling in approved courses. Course related fees are also the responsibility of the student.  Click here for more information on Dual Enrollment Funding
