Dual Enrollment Program
The Dual Enrollment Program, a state-approved, cooperative community venture provided by Walters State Community College, offers qualified high school students the opportunity to receive college credit at a relatively low cost while they complete their secondary education. It is designed to supplement and enrich students' high school experiences by providing access to collegiate education without interrupting their normal high school activities. The program has been successfully implemented in several school systems within the Walters State service area. Earned credits transfer to two-year and four-year accredited institutions from Walters State according to the discretion of the receiving institution.
