SOAR with Dual Enrollment

 

The Dual Enrollment program at South Georgia State College gives academically talented high school students the opportunity to earn college credit before graduating from high school. The Dual Enrollment program provides students an early start to their college careers and offers meaningful and challenging academic experiences to qualified students. The program is offered during all terms of the school year: spring, summer and fall semester.

Pathways at SGSC

Dual Enrollment Approved Courses

 

Tuition is covered by the Georgia Student Finance Commission (GSFC).  Dual enrollment  does not cover course related fees.  There are a limited number of courses which are not covered by the GSFC.  This means you would be responsible for paying tuition for those courses out of pocket.  Students are also responsible for paying any course related fees, which includes the $25 lab fee for science courses that include a lab.

 

What about books?  Dual Enrollment students will be provided course books for each course that the student is enrolled in per term at no cost to the student. Students taking courses on campus will have the required textbook(s) for his/her course(s) loaned to them from the South Georgia State College Bookstore.  Should one of the courses not be covered by the GSFC, you would be responsible for purchasing the course textbook.
