Dual Enrollment

Home / School Counseling / Dual Enrollment

Dual Enrollment ​is designed to prepare students for college and career opportunities leading students to postsecondary institutions for an industry recognized certification or lic​ensure, an associate and/or higher college ​​​degree, and successful employment. 11th and 12th grade students are eligible to participate in Dual Enrollment. Tenth grade students are eligible if they score a 1200 on the SAT, score a 25 on the ACT, or choose to attend college for a career technical area. Ninth grade students are not eligible to participate.  

Dual Enrollment gives high school students the opportunity to take college courses for college credit while also meeting high school graduation requirements. Students will receive high school and college credit simultaneously when attending and passing approved college classes. Students may enroll on a part-time or full-time basis as a Dual Enrollment student and take college courses at their high school or on a postsecondary campus. White County High School students 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 participating colleges and take courses on that college campus.
