Tuition is covered by the Georgia Student Finance Commission (GSFC). Dual enrollment does not cover course related fees. There are a limited number of courses which are not covered by the GSFC. This means you would be responsible for paying tuition for those courses the GSFC does not cover, such as course related fees. Students taking a science with a lab will be responsible for a $25 lab fee.
What about books? Dual Enrollment students will be provided course books for each course that the student is enrolled in per term at no cost to the student. Student taking courses on campus will have the required textbook(s) for his/her course(s) loaned from the South Georgia State College Bookstore. Should one of the courses not be covered by the GSFC, you would be responsible for purchasing the course textbook.
Students must complete a GA Futures application for funding to be approved by their High School Counselor and Dual Enrollment Specialist. The application can be accessed here:
