Dual-Credit Student

Logo for Edge Programs

Earn GCCC credit hours while still in high school.

High school sophomores, juniors and seniors may enroll in college-level classes and start earning college credit. Completing GCCC courses allows high school students to receive college credit and get the Edge on either their post-secondary education or CTE certifications.

While earning GCCC credit, your local school district may allow you to earn high school credit for that same course

ENROLLMENT OPTIONS:

  • Concurrent enrollment - Classes taught at a high school at which approved high school teachers teach college credit during the normal day.
  • Dual enrollment - Classes in which the high school student travels to the college campus to take courses prior to high school graduation during the academic year or in summer.
  • Online enrollment - Classes taught completely online by GCCC instructors via Canvas, our online learning platform. Often high schools provide students access to a teacher at their school for support and assistance.
