Dual Credit and Associate Degrees

Continuing your education beyond high school can provide access to

better jobs, better pay and a career you enjoy.


Earn Credits While in High School

Georgia’s Dual Enrollment Program allows qualified high school students to maximize their education and career training by taking courses that earn college and high school credit at the same time. 

Under Dual Enrollment, students may take academic core courses that can transfer to TCSG colleges or USG colleges and universities. Students may also take occupational and career courses that can help jump start a career.

Students who are in the 9th, 10th, 11th, or 12th grades, attend a participating Georgia high school or an approved home study program may qualify to take college level courses under the Dual Enrollment Program.


There are 22 colleges in the Technical College System of Georgia and 98 percent of graduates are presently continuing their education or employed in careers from accounting and air conditioning to veterinary technicians and web developers.
