High School Program

 

Dual Enrollment

Earn a Technical Certificate of Credit or technical college credits while still working towards your high school diploma. College-level classes provide both college and high school credit. Classes may be offered at your high school, or at Albany Tech.

Who may participate?

High school juniors and seniors who successfully meet Albany Technical College admissions requirements and have permission from their parents. Dual Enrollment is designed for students planning to pursue a technical program of study after high school.

How do I enroll?

Complete this application (pdf of High school form) and return to your high school counselor or CTAE Supervisor. You can also contact Albany Tech’s High School Coordinator at bsteel@albanytech.edu or (229) 430-1972.

Do I have to take a test to enroll?

Yes, COMPASS or ASSET is required to help you determine the best course placement to ensure your success. Your high school counselor or Albany Technical College staff can give you more information and help you schedule the testing.

Are Dual Enrollment courses different from regular high school courses?

Dual Enrollment courses must meet both high school and college curriculum standards. Generally they cover more material than high school courses, and they are taught by a college instructor. You receive dual credit for each dual enrollment course--credit for high school and college credit.

*Dual enrolled students, who are enrolled in the practical nursing program, must complete the program within 36 months.

Is Financial Aid available?

For qualified Georgia students, tuition and most fees are covered under the HOPE Grant. For more information on the HOPE program, click here. The HOPE cap does not apply for Dual enrolled students. For more information, please email April Creel in financial aid at acreel@albanytech.edu

Once enrolled, students attend standard college classes on our campus in addition to their high school classes.

The program is designed for students wanting to pursue an associate degree at Albany Tech after graduating from high school. Students must meet ACCEL program admission requirements.

Articulated Credit

Albany Tech and area public high schools formed Articulated Credit agreements to allow certain courses taken at the high school to be "articulated" toward a diploma, certificate or degree at Albany Technical College. Students who enroll within 18 months of high school graduation may receive advanced credit for the articulated courses. All articulated credit courses must be completed with a minimum grade of 85 to be accepted at Albany Technical College. Students must submit high school transcript and pass a certified validation test with a score of 70-percent or higher. Completed articulated credit courses will appear on student’s ATC transcript upon enrollment.
