High School - Dual Enrollment

Online College Courses for High School Students

Through dual enrollment, high school students have the opportunity to receive both high school and college credit while still enrolled in high school.

eCore is an excellent choice for high school students, 9th through 12th grade, who want to start college now without traveling to a physical campus for class. Classes are delivered entirely online through affiliate USG colleges and universities - meaning you don’t have to sacrifice quality for flexibility and accessibility.

There are many benefits to participating in dual enrollment in high school beyond accumulating college credit before graduation.

Dual enrollment can

  • Provide a smooth transition from high school to college-level coursework
  • Allow students to graduate from college sooner
  • Help students and their families save money on college tuition
  • Accumulate Rigor requirements for Hope Scholarship

In addition to the benefits of dual enrollment, there are several reasons why choosing to take online courses through eCore may be a good choice for you. Click here to read about the benefits of taking courses through eCore.

The eCore Student Success Team

We understand that high school students may need a little extra encouragement and direction when enrolled in college-level courses, and eCore’s student success team is dedicated to providing just that. eCore’s model for student success has been recognized by the Atlanta Journal Constitution and U.S. News & World Report. Our outreach starts before the first day of class, with online tutorial classes and personal start-of-term phone calls. During the term, we work closely with our instructors to monitor student activity in each class, and make personal phone calls to students when it looks like they may be falling behind.

Georgia’s Move On When Ready Program

The Move on When Ready (MOWR) program provides funds to be awarded for postsecondary course work qualifying for dual credit. Student must be enrolled in ninth, tenth, eleventh or twelfth grades. Students may receive MOWR funding for three semesters or four quarters per award year while enrolled in an eligible high school or home school study program. Required course books are provided through the college or university at no cost to the student. For more information please visit www.gafutures.org.

*Note - eCore does not provide numerical grades for dual enrolled students.
