Choosing Classes

Students may take a variety of courses with the Dual Enrollment (DE) program. Students and parents must consider the following when selecting DE courses:

  1. Am I satisfying my requirements for high school graduation? DE students must satisfy the GCA requirements for graduation.
  2. Have I met the high school and college pre-requisites for the course?  Many college courses have pre-requisites. You may not take courses out of sequence or jump ahead in the curriculum. See college course catalogs on the college website for college pre-requisites.

3. Students have the opportunity to create their college schedule.

4. Do I have enough classes/credit hours for the semester? How will I space out the 30 hours of dual enrollment that will be paid for by the state over my high school?

5. Is this a manageable workload for me? When registering for DE courses, students and parents should consider if the student is able to balance this schedule with any additional extracurricular commitments, work, etc.

6. Is the course approved for DE funding? Approved courses can be located in the DE Course Directory.

The directory is ever changing- always check the directory before selecting courses. Identify which subject areas the student is interested in taking college coursework in, and then determine if there is a DE course that qualifies as the equivalent of the high school course required for graduation and/or as an elective.

Who Can Participate

All funded/approved courses can be located in the DE Course Directory

Course offerings vary by term at the colleges.  Not all classes on the Course Directory are offered each term.  Students should refer to the college schedules each semester.  Students must be full time with either 12 credit hours at the college, 6 classes at GCA, or an approved number of combined classes.
