Oglethorpe offers high school students two opportunities to enroll in undergraduate courses. Dual enrollment student coursework earns them both high school and college credit.
For Joint Enrollment students, there is no guarantee that the courses taken will count for high school credit.
|Dual Enrollment||11th and 12th grade students attending a public or private high school in Georgia or an approved home study program||Fall, Spring or Summer||Georgia Student Finance Commission|
|Joint Enrollment||11th and 12th grade students||Fall, Spring or Summer||Student|
The main difference between the two programs is that tuition and fees for Dual Enrollment students are paid by the Georgia Student Finance Commission and coursework as a Joint Enrollment student may not fulfill high school requirements.
Application Fee waivers are granted for Dual Enrollment students and for Joint Enrollment students on an as needed basis. To be considered have your high school guidance counselor submit a fee waiver request form.
In order to register as a Dual Enrollment student, you must first be accepted by Oglethorpe and meet with your high school guidance counselor to select your courses.
The list of approved courses can be found Dual Enrollment Course Directory. Oglethorpe University will be found under “Private Colleges of Georgia.”
Once documents are received by the Office of Admission, our processing team will process your materials within 3-5 business days. For the most up to date information, be sure to check your Petrel Portal.
If you intend to register for a course that you do not meet the pre-requisites for, you must take the placement exam. More information can be found on our Placement & Credits page.
Though you are accepted and enrolled as a student, this does not guarantee your admission as a degree seeking student.
