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. Some even graduate with an Associate’s Degree at the same time they graduate from high school. Albany State University welcomes any 9-12th 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.
Provides an opportunity for academically talented high school students from eligible Georgia high schools to begin earning a college degree while simultaneously pursuing a high school diploma.
