Joint Enrollment Applicants
Academically qualified high school students may apply to enter North Georgia via the joint-enrolled plan. Students admitted to this program may receive dual credit in both high school and college for English, Mathematics and Social Science by successfully completing the appropriate courses with a grade of C or better. High School credit awarded is determined by the student's high school. Students who wish to take courses in other areas may do so at the high school's discretion. However, dual credit may not be allowed by the high school for such courses.
Effective with Fall Semester of 2009, students attending non-accredited home school programs or non-accredited high schools will be eligible to participate in North Georgia's joint enrollment program if they provide a completed Admissions Portfolio and meet the university's joint enrollment requirements.
