Dual Enrollment

 

Dual Enrollment is a State of Georgia initiative that allows high school students to take college courses through an approved college or university for high school credit.

To apply for Dual Enrollment, you must follow the high school's registration process as well as the college's application process. Apply to your college and then you must complete the Dual Enrollment Funding Application with the Parent Agreement portion online via GAFutures.org, and the paper copy of the Fulton County Contract. Summer and Fall deadlines for Dual Enrollment are the last school day on or before March 31st. The spring deadline is the last school day on or before November 1st.

GT Distance Computer Science

Georgia Tech’s Spring 2021 dual enrollment application is now open for Distance Computer Science. We invite students who have an interest in computer science to apply for this one-semester program.  

Please see below for details about this opportunity.


Important Considerations

  • This application is only for students who have not previously applied for dual enrollment at Georgia Tech for the 2020-2021 year.  

  • Some students applied and were admitted in the summer for spring semester Distance Computer Science. They do not need to reapply.

  • Any student currently taking Distance Math can request to add Distance Computer Science to their spring registration by contacting Laura Simmons.

  • To be considered, students must complete the online dual enrollment application, and submit both a high school transcript and ACT, SAT, or PSAT results.  
     

Course Basics

  • CS 1301 is one of Georgia Tech’s Introduction to Computing courses. Targeted to Computer Science students, it is also commonly taken by industrial engineering, business, liberal arts, and science majors. 

  • This course covers the basics of computer science in the Python programming language.

  • Students with a score of 4 or 5 on AP Computer Science A can earn credit for this particular course based on their AP score.

  • Instruction and evaluation (including exams) are fully delivered online.  
     

Distance Participation Requirements

  • Each participating student must have access to a computer with a web camera, reliable internet access, a web browser, and quiet space.
