Dual Enrollment

Students participating in Georgia's dual enrollment (DE) program have the opportunity to earn both high school and college credits by taking college courses. The Georgia Student Finance Commission (GSFC) fully funds DE tuition, mandatory fees, and books. Click here for the Cobb County DE website.

Dual Enrollment: About

Mandatory Information Sessions

Students and a parent/guardian must attend a mandatory Walton DE information session to receive detailed explanations about the following: DE benefits and drawbacks, eligibility criteria, enrollment options, course credits, grading system, impact on HOPE, transcript management, funding, recent statistics, and the application process.

Walton offered 9 dual enrollment information sessions during the 2023-24 school year. We will offer several mandatory information sessions for the 2024-25 school year. Please visit our website at the beginning of the 2024 school year to register for one of the mandatory information sessions.

Dual Enrollment: About Me


The Walton School Counseling Department has created a checklist for DE to guide students through the DE process. All the necessary DE steps, including deadlines, are outlined in the specific order in which they must be completed. Students should download the checklist and mark each step as they finish it to ensure they complete all the DE requirements.

Dual Enrollment: About Me


CCSD mandates students to submit all the required DE paperwork to their DE counselors every semester they participate in DE. CCSD deadlines:

May 1st - Fall & Summer semesters
November​ 1st - Spring semester 

Students must also adhere to college and university deadlines, which are often different than Cobb County's. It is the student's responsibility to research college deadlines for DE. In addition, college course registration often begins before the college application deadlines. Applying early increases the likelihood of securing desired courses, although acceptance and schedule are subject to availability.
