Dual Enrollment Program
What funding is available for Dual Enrollment students?
The ACCEL funding option through the Georgia Student Finance Commission
Students who are part time at the college and part-time at their high schools are eligible for the ACCEL funding option which is administered by GFSC.
Students are eligible for ACCEL funding if they are accepted into the Dual Enrollment Program with Georgia Perimeter College; they are in a high school program accredited in the state of Georgia; they are a U.S. citizen or U.S. national, or have permanent resident status at the time the application is submitted; and, they are considered a legal resident of the State of Georgia.
ACCEL pays tuition, some fees, and a small book grant. Students pay some fees and book costs.
Students who use the ACCEL program to pay for their college credits will be using their allotment of HOPE credits early.
Students may also be full-time students at the college and use the ACCEL funding option
The GA DOE option (also known as Move On When Ready, MOWR, or HB 149)
Students who are full-time at the college, meaning they are taking 12 college credits or more and no classes at their high school, are eligible for funding through the state DOE.
Students are eligible for funding through the state DOE if they are legal residents of Georgia and have attended an accredited Georgia public high school for the fall and spring semesters preceding the semester they become a dual enrollment student.
DOE funds will pay tuition and fees. Students are responsible for the full cost of books.
Students who are full-time at the college and using the state DOE funds to pay will not be using their credits allotted towards HOPE.
If you don’t qualify for the Accel or MOWR funding, you’ll have to pay for your own tuition, fees, and books. Funding is not available for students from non-accredited programs.
The Accel Program pays full tuition, some fees, and provides a small book grant for qualified students. The MOWR program pays full tuition and all mandatory fees but does not provide any money for books. With both funding options, students usually pay most of the cost of their books.
No funding is available in the summer session.
Students who are still in high school are not eligible for federal funds and do not complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid).
