Did you know that at Truett McConnell University, you can take courses and earn college credit before graduating high school?
Taking courses through TMU is an excellent way for you to get a head start with college, make new friends, and interact with faculty, all while earning high school and college credit! TMU offers courses in business, English, history (including World History and American History), mathematics and science, world languages (such as Latin and Spanish), and more. Please review the list of available course offerings.
Eleventh and twelfth grade students (as well as sophomores with qualifying SAT or ACT Scores) in Georgia high schools are eligible to participate and receive funding through the state system. TMU requires a minimum GPA of 3.0 in order to be accepted as a Dual Enrollment student. TMU also provides textbooks for enrolled dual enrollment students.
If you meet the eligibility criteria listed above and are interested in becoming a TMU Dual Enrollment student, please complete the steps listed below:
STEP 1: Complete the TMU Dual Enrollment Application
Be sure to connect with your high school counselor/advising official and discuss your intention to dual enroll at TMU. To begin the admissions process, click this link to complete the application online:
Self-Service – Apply (truett.edu)
Application Deadlines: Fall Semester – May 15 and Spring Semester – November 1
STEP 2: Submit your transcript
Provide an official transcript from your high school as well as from any previous or current college(s) (if applicable) to the Dual Enrollment office (dualenrollment @truett.edu).
Office of Dual Enrollment
Truett McConnell University
100 Alumni Drive
Cleveland, GA 30528
Upon acceptance into TMU as a Dual Enrollment student, a welcome email will be sent from our office guiding you through the following steps for course registration (steps 3 & 4 below) as well as providing instructions for setting up your TMU email and accessing your online classroom.
STEP 3: Complete the GA futures funding application
The next step is to complete the GA futures funding application.
- Visit https://www.gafutures.org/ to get started.
- A tutorial on setting up a GA futures student account is provided here: Dual Enrollment Create an Account and Funding Application Tutorial – YouTube.
Homeschool students please note: Your homeschool official must FIRST establish a GA futures account as an “education professional” BEFORE you begin the DE online application. Your high school name will need to be established in the GA futures system in order for you to complete the application. Instructions for registering your high school are provided here: Creating a Home Study Program Account.
STEP 4: Counselor submits your class request
Your high school counselor/official submits your class requests through the GA futures dashboard.
Please contact our Associate Director, Mr. Gary Bennett (email@example.com), to set up an advisement meeting regarding any dual enrollment classes you want to take on the TMU campus. All other online class requests can be submitted through the dashboard system by your high school counselor/official. A course listing/approval sheet will be provided by TMU to assist in this process.
Homeschool students, please note: Instructions to assist homeschool officials in submitting course requests through the GA futures dashboard system are provided in the link below:
If a course is not covered by state funding for any reason, then the student will be invoiced at the institutional rate as advertised on TMU’s website. This does not include courses eligible for state funding through the state funding system but does include any course taken which is not eligible for state funding. Again, this does not apply to students who have received state funding through the GA futures system.
*Any interested students who do not meet the state-funding eligibility requirements (such as sophomores without qualifying SAT/ACT scores, out-of-state students, and students who have exceeded their state funding dual enrollment credit allotment) should contact us directly to inquire about the application process at firstname.lastname@example.org as additional joint enrollment/self-pay options are available.
