What is Dual Enrollment?
Dual enrollment is a program that allows high school students to take college courses and earn both high school and college credit. This can be a great way to get a head start on college, and it can also help you save money on tuition. Georgia Tech does accept dual enrollment credits, but there are a few things you need to know first.
What are the benefits of Dual Enrollment?
Many high school students choose to take college courses while they are still in high school. There are several reasons why students might choose to do this. Some students want to get a head start on their college education. They might want to take challenging courses that are not offered at their high school or take advantage of special programs offered at a nearby college. Students might also choose to take a college course to earn credit that can be transferred to a college after graduation.
There are several benefits of dual enrollment. First, it can save you time and money. College courses taken during high school can often be used for both high school and college credit. This means you can graduate from high school with some college credits already completed. These credits can often be transferred to another college, which can save you time and money when you start college. Second, dual enrollment can help you better prepare for the rigors of college-level coursework. Taking challenging courses in high school can better prepare you for the transition to college-level work. Finally, dual enrollment gives you the opportunity to explore different areas of study and figure out what you’re interested in before making a commitment to a particular major or program of study.
