According to a news release from the university, Gazden State Community College has set a record high for its double-registration program in the last two years.

According to the Alabama Community College System, GSCC has shown a 57% increase since 2020, contributing more than 15% to high school students participating in double enrollment across the state.

Tonya Douthitt, Gadsden State University’s dual registration coordinator, said: “As more students learn about these opportunities, we believe there is an increasing trend of double enrollment across service areas.”

Double enrollment is one of the programs that gives high school students in Alabama access to college-level classes and allows them to earn credits at the same time in both high school and college.

If you choose to take a double enrollment class, whether you teach directly, hybrid or online, you only have to worry about your grades when earning college credits for your class.

Students wishing to participate in the GSCC dual enrollment program must be in grade 10, 11 or 12 years. Get permission from the school counselor. You will receive a college admission packet with your double registration application.

Students must also have a minimum placement score before enrolling in core subjects such as English, Mathematics, and Computer Science.

Recently, an additional $ 5 million was awarded by the Legislature for the opportunity to double-register at a community college in Alabama, signed by Governor Kay Ivey.
