Georgia Tech partners with high school and home study programs to enroll students in advanced courses. Our program intends to enrich the high school experience, not replace it. Students who take classes at Georgia Tech usually continue taking classes and participating in activities and organizations in their high school communities.
Admission for Dual Enrollment is available for fall semester only. If you are admitted for fall semester, you may enroll in spring semester courses pending satisfactory academic performance in the fall. Summer courses are not available.
The admission process is selective and a prospective student should have a profile like students in the top quarter of our freshman class to be competitive.
Most of our dual enrollment students are in a program called Distance Math. Classes are on our campus, taught to our own Georgia Tech students, while being delivered via live video or internet feed to students in 51 classrooms across Georgia. Students enjoy the challenge of a college class and professor without leaving their high schools.
In Fall 2016, students who have completed AP Calculus BC may apply to take Distance Linear Algebra (Fall) and Distance Multivariable Calculus (Spring) at Tech. Subsequently, students who have completed those courses may apply to take Distance Number Theory and Cryptography and Distance Applied Combinatorics.
On-Campus Dual Enrollment
Students who come to campus take courses that are beyond those available to high school students. With credit for introductory level classes, they may choose from many offerings typically taken by sophomores and juniors at Georgia Tech.
Georgia’s Move on When Ready program provides the full cost of attendance for students who meet the program’s criteria and take Georgia Tech approved courses.
We are updating our Dual Enrollment program to better align with Move On When Ready guidelines introduced in July 2015. Additional Information about our application and selection process will be available in early 2016. Questions about the program may be directed to Laura Simmons.
