Savannah Technical College’s Dual Enrollment COVID-19 Admissions Procedures.

In lieu of the Accuplacer, which is currently unavailable due to the COVID-19 crisis, Savannah Technical College is asking for high school counselors to submit a high school transcript for each student. Student transcripts will be evaluated for a calculated HOPE GPA of 2.6. If a student does not have a HOPE GPA of 2.6, a GMAS score of 525 or higher can be used for admissions, as well as PSAT and PACT scores aligned with the regular SAT and ACT requirement. Transcripts may be emailed to Paper Student Participation Agreements for Summer may be emailed to the above email address through May 16th. After that date the SPA Form and Funding application will both need to be submitted online at GA Futures.  All Fall Dual Enrollment Students must apply for funding, submit applications and SPA Forms online at GA Futures. All students must have a current Savannah Tech Admissions Application on file to enroll in courses.

Dual Enrollment

Dual Enrollment is an investment in a student’s future – offering high school students the dynamic opportunity to “jump start” their college education! *Additional program-specific fees may be charged. Benefits include:

  • Decreases length of time in college due to taking courses while in high school.
  • Introduces students to the college atmosphere, making them more equipped to handle college life after high school graduation.
  • Provides an advantage of versatile college schedules, including online courses.
  • Provides access to college resources (e.g. Library, Computer Lab, Learning Enrichment Center).
  • Dual Enrollment funds do not affect students’ HOPE cap.

The Dual Enrollment program allows high school students to take academic degree level core courses that will transfer to any TCSG or USG institution. 10th through 12th Grade Students are also allowed to take both diploma level and/or occupational courses. 10th grade students are allowed to take CTAE or occupational courses. Some students may choose to enroll fully into a degree, diploma, or technical certificate of credit program, or they may choose to just take a few courses. The Dual Enrollment program is a great opportunity for high school students to start on their college coursework. Courses are taught on the college campus, high school campus, online, hybrid, and via distance education.

Tuition, Fees and Books

Tuition and most fees are covered by Dual Enrollment for every eligible student in the program. Books will also be provided  to Dual Enrollment students at no charge. Because students are eligible to participate in almost all STC programs, they may be responsible for course-specific fees in some program areas; however, most STC programs do not require such fees. Students should speak with the High School Initiatives Coordinator to find out specifics about course-related fees. Students can fill out the application for Dual Enrollment funding at the following link: Dual Enrollment Funding Application.
