• Be enrolled in an eligible public or private high school or home-study program
• Be classified as a high school junior or senior

The Georgia Student Finance Commission has prepared answers to some of students' and parents' frequently asked questions about the program. Click here for more information. YHC's goal is your student to succeed. Should you have additional questions, contact Admissions at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell them you are a dual-enrollment student.
The initiative required in college is very different from that required in high school. Therefore, we encourage parents to consider the maturity of their students. The academic rigor of college classes is also significantly more challenging in college than high school. When evaluating whether or not you are ready for college-level coursework, look beyond GPA and standardized test scores. All dual enrollment students must maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress for non-degree seeking students, as defined by the Young Harris College Financial Aid Policy.
ONLINE COURSE READINESS
If you are thinking about an online course, consider if you are disciplined enough to stick to a schedule even when no one is looking over your shoulder. Taking these online courses gives you flexibility by replacing face-to-face traditional classes with engaging online instructional activities, but there are still due dates to be met.
