Dual Enrollment gives high school students the opportunity 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 or online.
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. 9th grade students are not eligible to take Dual Enrollment Courses.

WCHS Dual Enrollment Deadlines

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
Current NGTC Dual Enrolled Students will need to reapply if they do not take courses in two consecutive semesters.
