Dual Enrollment is a state-funded program allowing high school students to take college courses. Students receive credit for both high school and college courses. Courses taken will appear on both high school and college transcripts. Georgia provides 100% funding for tuition, mandatory fees, and books.

Any students interested in participating in dual enrollment in the future must attend a Dual Enrollment Information Session and complete the Walton High School Dual Enrollment Checklist before meeting with their assigned dual enrollment counselor.
Cobb County's Dual Enrollment deadlines are May 1 (Summer & Fall) and November 1 (Spring).
The Walton High School Counseling Department has created a Dual Enrollment checklist for students to follow. This will ensure that all steps are followed accurately and on time. Please download the checklist and check off the steps as they are completed. The Dual Enrollment counselors will only meet with students once all items on the first page of the checklist are complete.
