Do you want to get a head start on your college career while still in high school? Of course! The dual enrollment program at Southeastern Technical College provides high school students the opportunity to earn college credit by working towards the completion of a certificate or diploma program while still enrolled in high school.
Classes are offered at your high school (must have 12 program ready students), or you may get to take classes at one of our college campuses.
What is Dual Enrollment?
The dual enrollment program at STC provides qualified students of the counties of Candler, Emanuel, Jenkins, Johnson, Montgomery, Tattnall, Toombs, and Treutlen and Vidalia city schools the opportunity to earn post-secondary and Carnegie Unit credit while concurrently enrolled in a high school class.
