Interested in Dual Enrollment? It is VERY important that you understand that there is a process and DEADLINES to be aware of for the Dual Enrollment program. If you contact Ms. Goldman the day before a deadline, she may not be available to assist you. Plan ahead!
ONCE YOU BEGIN THE DUAL ENROLLMENT PROGRAM YOU ARE A COLLEGE STUDENT! Parents, during this process I do place a lot of responsibility on YOUR STUDENT! If a student is interested in taking Dual Enrollment, they must know the process and the rules of the program.
YOU CANNOT START THE DUAL ENROLLMENT PROGRAM UNTIL YOU HAVE ATTENDED A PEBBLEBROOK DUAL ENROLLMENT INFORMATION SESSION OR A COUNTY DUAL ENROLLMENT SUMMIT! (Parents, you are WELCOME to join any of my Dual Enrollment Information sessions!)
Cobb County Deadlines
Cobb County School District has set countywide deadlines for all students who are applying for Dual Enrollment programs. This is to help ensure that students have the best chance at selecting the college schedule that they most prefer.
It is important to note that college deadlines often differ from the deadlines set below, and may be earlier. Students are encouraged to apply earlier than any posted deadline and where a college deadline might fall later, they will adhere to CCSD deadlines.
Fall – May 1
Spring – November 1
Summer – May 1 (COLLEGES MAY HAVE EARLIER DEADLINES!)
|STEPS FOR DUAL ENROLLMENT at Pebblebrook HS|
|Please refer to the county Dual Enrollment website for more details: CCSD Dual Enrollment|
|Step 1: Attend a DE Info Session||This is required for students who are new to the DE program. Ms. Goldman offers evening, lunch, and morning sessions. Parents are welcome to attend - BUT STUDENTS MUST BE PRESENT! See below for Pebblebrook's upcoming DE Information Sessions.|
|Step 2: Choose a College and Research their DE progam||There are several colleges that offer Dual Enrollment. You can see the full list here: Colleges that offer Dual Enrollment Each college will have their own requirements for admission (GPA, testing, etc.). Once you decide on a college, make sure to go to that college's dual enrollment website to learn what is required.|
|Step 3: Take qualifying tests or use your HOPE GPA||Make sure you are aware of the test scores needed to gain admission to the college you would like to take Dual Enrollment classes. For Chattahoochee Technical College, students in 11th or 12th grade can use their HOPE GPA in the place of test scores. *Update: Many schools have waived the test score requirements due to COVID, please make sure you are reading the requirements for the college you are applying to!|
|Step 4: Apply to the College's DE program||Apply to the college. If you need a transcript sent to the school, complete this Dual Enrollment Transcript request form and email it to Mrs. Goldman: DE Transcript Request|
|Step 5: Complete DE Funding Application||IMPORTANT! This must be completed prior to starting classes so that the course is paid for! This must be completed through www.gafutures.org. Follow the steps here: DE Funding Application Steps|
|Step 6: Meet with the Dual Enrollment Counselor||
Schedule an appointment with Mrs. Goldman at goldmanphs.youcanbook.me. During this time, Mrs. Goldman will go over the PHS DE Contract, DE Advisement Form and CCSD School Agreement and guide you through course options. DO NOT SCHEDULE AN INDIVIDUAL APPOINTMENT WITH MS. GOLDMAN UNTIL YOU HAVE COMPLETED STEPS 1 through 5.
|Step 7: Give a copy of your College schedule to Mrs. Goldman||
Make sure to email a copy of your college schedule to Mrs. Goldman at email@example.com. Remember to think about the Pebblebrook Bell Schedule when you are choosing your college classes!
|Step 8: Continue to check your email; both your PERSONAL and YOUR COLLEGE EMAIL||You will be contacted by the schools regarding IMPORTANT information! (ex. Orientation information, how to access your course, etc.) Ms. Goldman can help guide you, but YOU ARE NOW A COLLEGE STUDENT ONCE YOU BEGIN TAKING DUAL ENROLLMENT COURSES! It is important that you take these courses seriously and reach out to your COLLEGE advisor when you have questions or concerns about your classes.|
|PAY ATTENTION TO REGISTRATION/WITHDRAWAL DEADLINES FOR YOUR COLLEGE! Once you add a college class, you have TEN DAYS from the start of the Cobb County semester to drop that class. If you drop after 10 days, it will become an F (grade of 10) on your PHS Transcript. THERE ARE CONSEQUENCES IF YOU DO NOT TAKE YOUR DE CLASSES SERIOUSLY! THESE ARE COLLEGE CLASSES!|
