Home / School Counseling / Dual Enrollment

Dual Enrollment gives high school students the chance to take college courses for college credit while also meeting high school graduation requirements. Students at White County High School can choose to dual enroll through North Georgia Technical College or Truett McConnell University and have the opportunity to take several courses at WCHS. Students can also choose to dual enroll through other local colleges and take courses on that college campus.

11th and 12th grade students are eligible to participate in Dual Enrollment. 10th grade students are eligible if they take the SAT and score a 1200 or the ACT and score a 26.

WCHS Dual Enrollment Deadlines

Fall and Summer Terms: April 1

Colleges will also have their own deadlines to apply, which may be after the WCHS deadlines.

However, the WCHS deadlines will be firm deadlines for participation in the Dual Enrollment Program.

How to Apply for Dual Enrollment

Students who wish to take classes at NGTC or TMU should follow the instructions on this page.


If a student wants to enroll at a different college, they should visit that college's website for instructions on how to apply. Our school counselors will be glad to help with any applications as needed. You should still complete steps 1-3 and 5-7 on this page. You can find links to other local colleges that offer dual enrollment at the bottom of this page.

Applying for Dual Enrollment Courses Available at WCHS:

North Georgia Technical College (NGTC) and Truett McConnell University (TMU) offer Dual Enrollment College Classes at WCHS. Click here for a list of DE Courses (along with pre-requisites and descriptions) available at WCHS

Step 1: First, let WCHS know that you are applying by completing this form.

Step 2: Complete the White County High School Dual Enrollment Contract found here and return it to the WCHS front office. A DE Contract should be completed each school year.

Step 3: Complete the Funding Application on GAFutures.org. Students and parents must complete a Funding Application each year to get classes paid for. This is a critical step and is in addition to the college application. Click here for instructions on how to complete the funding application

Please note: if you are applying to more than one college for Dual Enrollment, you should include both colleges on the funding application. You do not have to complete a separate funding application for each college.

Step 4: Apply to the appropriate College or University based on the courses you want to take. If you want to take classes with both colleges, you must complete both applications.

  • Students who apply to NGTC should use the online application portal to submit their application.

  • Students who apply to TMU should print the application, complete it, and turn it in to the WCHS front office. WCHS will submit your application to TMU with your high school transcript.

Current NGTC Dual Enrolled Students will need to reapply only if they do not take courses in two consecutive semesters. For example, if a student took a DE course in the Fall semester, but did not take a course in Spring or Summer Semester, he/she will need to reapply.

Everyone should complete all other steps.

Current TMU Dual Enrolled Students do not need to reapply if they wish to continue to take courses at TMU. However, students should notify their school counselor of their intentions to continue taking TMU courses.


Everyone should complete all other application steps.

After you Apply:

Step 5: If you are accepted, please notify your school counselor.

Step 6: Plan to attend an advisement meeting

    • Students taking classes on WCHS campus through NGTC or TMU will be invited to attend an advisement session/registration meeting in late April.

    • Students who wish to take a dual enrollment class off-campus should schedule a meeting with their counselor to discuss class registration procedures. After you meet with your school counselor, you will need to schedule a meeting with your college advisor at NGTC to select your college courses.

Step 7: Register for college courses.
