COLUMBUS, Ga- Freshman high school students in Georgia can start working on their college credits—and one local college is leading that charge.
Georgia Military College’s Columbus campus says it is experiencing great success with its dual enrollment program.
Dual enrollment allows high school students who have a 2.5 grade point average or higher to take course that count for college credit at no cost.
In some cases, students have graduated high school with an associate’s degree almost completed.
“The state of Georgia picks up the tuition, GMC provides any required materials, textbooks, access codes, so it’s just a win-win for the student,” says Holly Arnold, executive director of the Columbus Campus of Georgia Military College.
“I actually saved a lot of money, so I could be able to afford going my second year and transferring to a bigger college and be able to afford there,” says Alyssa Dean, sophomore at Columbus Campus of Georgia Military College.
The next time dual enrollment classes will start at Georgia Military College will be in January.
