Admissions - Joint Enrollment/ACCEL Program

Joint Enrollment, Dual Enrollment, and the ACCEL program are designed for high school juniors and seniors who are capable of entering college while still completing high school coursework and requirements. Students must have approval from their high school guidance office and their parents. Please seek approval from your guidance office before beginning the application process. It is important to note that the ACCEL program only covers tuition. Other fees and book expenses are the responsibility of the student!

“Georgia Highlands College has built the foundation of achievement to set the path for my education. Here at the Marietta site, I appreciate the opportunity that was given to me with great Professors, classrooms, and a great support system. Here in our society we tend to look for fads and names, but we miss out on the several doors of opportunity, right in our communities. As an Alumni to be, I cherish the experience that Georgia Highlands Marietta site has given to me; and most of all I appreciate my opportunity. Why go any place else, when success is right in front of you.”
