Dual Enrollment 

Dual Enrollment (formerly Move On When Ready) is Georgia's new program that allows high school students to earn college credit while working on their high school diploma. The new law streamlines the existing dual enrollment options (Accel and HOPE Grant) into one program with one funding source. By consolidating the existing programs into a single program, it will be easier for students and parents to navigate and take advantage of the available options to enroll in college courses while still in high school. The new dual enrollment program includes provisions to help remove some of the financial barriers that may prevent students from participating in a dual enrollment program. Please click on the name of the program for further information.


***Due to the suspension of all in-person SAT, ACT and ACCUPLACER testing opportunities, Columbus State University has also made the decision to waive testing requirements for Dual Enrollment students applying for the Summer and Fall 2020 semesters. Students must meet the following requirements:

1 - Be on-track for completing all high school graduation requirements and the USG's Required High School Curriculum (RHSC). 

2- Have at least a 3.0 High School GPA calculated on the RHSC courses completed.

3 - Successfully completed two units of English. (480 EBRW SAT, 17 English ACT, or 17 Reading ACT can waive this requirement)

4 - Successfully completed Algebra II or the equivalent. (440 Math SAT or 17 Math ACT can waive this requirement)

Program Who is Eligible? Part/Full-Time Who Pays? Which Semesters?
Dual Enrollment Eligible students in grades 11-12 seeking a high school diploma from an eligible Georgia high school, home school, or home study program. 9th and 10th graders possessing, in the judgment of University enrollment official, truly exceptional grade point averages and standardized test scores that would compare favorably to the top 10% of the previous fall semester's incoming University freshman class, and who otherwise meet all other criteria, may appeal in writing. CSU reserves the right to require any additional documentation and an on-campus interview with appropriate authorized CSU officials in order to fully consider whether the student possesses the necessary characteristics to be successful.
