Georgia’s Dual Enrollment program allows high school students to earn college credit while working on their high school diploma, at little to no cost to the student. According to the state of Georgia, to be eligible to participate in the Dual Enrollment program, high school students must be enrolled in the 10th, 11th, or 12th grade at a participating eligible high school or in a home study program operated in pursuant to O.C.G.A. 20-2-690. 

    It is important to keep in mind that students must also meet the dual enrollment admissions requirements set by the participating postsecondary institution they wish to attend. Those requirements may include a minimum grade level, SAT/ACT score, GPA, and age or other requirement. Eligible Postsecondary Institutions have the authority to implement their own institutional policies of admission acceptances and course offerings for dual enrollment student participation.

    It is the student’s responsibility to research and be familiar with the requirements specific to the postsecondary institution to which they would like to apply.

    Maynard Jackson High School has express MOUs (Memorandum of Understanding) with Georgia State University, Atlanta Metropolitan State College, and Atlanta Technical College. However students are able to participate in Dual Enrollment at any Georgia college or university to which they are accepted and have transportation.
