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 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 course 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. 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 Dual Enrollment Program

The Dual Enrollment program provides funds to be awarded for postsecondary course work qualifying for dual credit. Students must be enrolled in 9th - 12th grades. Students may receive Dual Enrollment funding for three semesters or four quarters per award year while enrolled in an eligible high school or home school study program. For more information please visit the GAfutures website.

*Note - eCore does not provide numerical grades for dual enrolled students. Proctored exam costs and lab kits associated with Science lab courses are not covered by Dual Enrollment.
