Dual Enrollment students are able to take classes that count towards their high school curriculum while also earning college-level credits. Academically accelerated students who are prepared for this challenge are invited to learn more about this exciting opportunity below.
Students must be at least 16 years of age at the time of enrollment.
Successful completion of the 10th grade is required. Students must also be classified as a high school junior or senior by the first day of the term in which they plan to enroll.

To apply for Dual Enrollment, the following documentation must be sent to the Augusta University Office of Academic Admissions.
Step 1: Admissions Application
The Undergraduate application is used for students applying to be a Dual Enrollment student.
Please note that the application fee is waived for Dual Enrollment applicants. To submit a completed application, students will choose the Pay Later or Fee Waiver option on the Payment Screen. The submission of a Fee Waiver Code is not required.
*If a student completes the application before receiving the fee waiver and pays a cost, it cannot be refunded.
CommonApp cannot be used to apply as a Dual Enrollment Student.
Step 2: High school transcripts
Transcripts should be sent electronically from the high school using an official service such as GAFutures. Transcript can also be mailed to:
Office of Academic Admissions

Step 3: Standardized test scores
Official score reports are those sent directly to Augusta University from the testing agency. Scores should be received prior to the appropriate application deadline. The following are the Institutional Codes for Augusta University:
Students wishing to take a course with a prerequisite requirement will need to submit official AP/IB exam score reports prior to registration.
Step 4: Dual Enrollment Participation Agreement
Students must apply for Georgia’s Dual Enrollment Funding Program via GAFutures if they wish to receive state funding. Once the student has completed their portion of the funding form, the student’s parent/guardian will need to complete the Parent Participation Agreement section.
Students who are not eligible for Georgia’s Dual Enrollment Funding Program will need to complete a Dual and Joint Enrollment Course Approval Form.
A new Parent Participation Agreement is required each academic year (summer, fall, and spring semesters). The upcoming academic year application is released in February of each year in GAFutures.
Step 5: Verification of Lawful Presence
Visit the Verification of Lawful Presence webpage for more information.
Both the Dual Enrollment Directory and AU Course Schedule tool can be used to help students identify which courses are funded through Georgia’s Dual Enrollment Funding Program as well as when and in what format they will be offered for any given semester.
The state of Georgia provides funding to students who are dually enrolled at a participating public or private high school, or home study program in Georgia, and a participating eligible postsecondary institution in Georgia. More information can be found on the GAFutures website hosted by the Georgia Student Finance Commission (GSFC).
Upon completion of each semester, the Registrar’s Office will provide grades directly to the student’s high school. Please note that numeric grades are not provided.
