Georgia’s dual enrollment program allows students to attend a post-secondary institution full-time most likely during their junior and/or senior years of high school and receive high school credit and college credit simultaneously while attending college classes on the college campus (full-time) or pursuing those courses while still on a high school campus (part time). In 2015, the Georgia General Assembly passed a law that streamlined the existing dual-enrollment programs. As a result, Accel, Dual HOPE Grant, and the original Move On When Ready have been combined into one program in which high school students may earn high school course credits while taking college courses. Georgia’s dual-credit program is available to any Georgia student in grades 9-12 enrolled in a public school, private school, or home-study program operated pursuant to O.C.G.A. 20-2-690 in Georgia.
