How will the courses be paid for?

For qualified Georgia students, a portion of the tuition will be covered under the HOPE grant. Albany Technical College’s president believes that attending college while in high school is so beneficial to high school students that our college is waiving the remainder of the tuition cost as well as all fees. The only cost to students will be for books and materials. If a student is a first generation college student, receives free/reduced lunch at the high school or can prove financial need they may be able to receive money for books from the College Access Challenge Grant. Requests and documents for this program must be turned in one week before the start of the semester the student is entering. The request will also need to be made for each semester the student is attending.


Student in the Joint Enrollment program will be using their HOPE money. For complete details on HOPE, please visit the Georgia Student Finance Commission website at http://www.gsfc.org
