Programs for High School Students

College Credit Now Options

Wiregrass Georgia Technical College offers several different early enrollment options for current high school students. Make a selection below to find out which option is right for you:

College Credit Now - Dual Enrollment

Do you want to get a head start on your college career while still in high school? Sure you do! At Wiregrass Georgia Technical College, you can earn college credit while completing your high school diploma. Dual enrollment gives you the opportunity to earn a technical certificate of credit or technical college diploma credits while also earning elective credit at your high school. Eighty percent (80%) of the tuition will be paid by the HOPE Grant for Georgia residents. Wiregrass will exempt other tuition and fees. Students will only be responsible for books and materials. The hours taken under the Dual Enrollment program will not count against the HOPE cap hours.

Some Dual Enrollment classes are offered at your high school, or you may get to take classes at one of our college campuses. For more information on our dual enrollment program, go to Frequently Asked Questions, or watch our NEW video here.

College Credit Now - ACCEL Program

Wiregrass Georgia Technical College provides an opportunity for eligible Georgia public, private, and homeschooled high school students to earn college degree-level credit hours in English, math, social studies and other curricula as they simultaneously meet their high school graduation requirements. The hours taken under the ACCEL program will not count against the HOPE cap hours. Wiregrass ACCEL courses are transferrable to most USG colleges and universities.

The ACCEL regulations can be accessed at www.gsfc.org under Georgia's HOPE Program, Scholarship and Grant Regulations.

For more information on the ACCEL Program, go to Frequently Asked Questions.

College Credit Now - Joint Enrollment

Joint Enrollment provides high school students the opportunity to take courses at Wiregrass Georgia Technical College and receive college credit ONLY for the courses that they take at the college. Joint Enrollment students usually attend college classes in the afternoon or evening after they have attended high school an entire school day. Joint Enrollment students are allowed to take academic core and occupational program courses for any technical certificate or diploma program in which they are eligible. Eighty percent (80%) of the tuition will be paid by the HOPE Grant for Georgia residents. Wiregrass will exempt other tuition and fees. Students will only be responsible for books and materials.

Move On When Ready

Move On When Ready provides high school students the opportunity to “jump start” their post secondary education during their high school years.

High school students will be free to “move on” earlier to the next educational level.  Students will have an educational alternative other than the traditional high school setting or school day structure. MOWR students must attend Wiregrass full-time and are not allowed to take any courses at their high school.

For more information on the Move On When Ready program, see the Frequently Asked Questions.
