Recognizing the need to provide talented high school students with options for advanced study, the University System of Georgia (USG) formed the Dual Enrollment program that allows qualifying high school students to enroll in USG colleges and universities and to receive college credits while completing their high school graduation requirements. As a Dual Enrollment student, you will pay no fees for tuition or books to take courses at Armstrong. You will only pay minimal fees such as lab fees or parking fees. Students who begin in their sophomore or junior year may be able to complete an associates degree at the same time they graduate from high school.
Together the Office of Admissions and the Office of Academic Advisement lead the campus in enthusiastic support of this program, welcoming these students onto our campus. Check out the links below and to the left for specific information on the dual enrollment programs offered at Armstrong.

Please note: Not all high schools in GA have elected to participate in the Dual Enrollment program.
