402.0113 JOINT ENROLLMENT / EARLY ADMISSIONS POLICY
Georgia Perimeter College, in accordance with University System of
Georgia policy, recognizes the need to provide academically talented high
school students with opportunities for acceleration of their formal academic
programs. This recognition has led to the development of two organized
1. A joint enrollment program in which the student, while continuing his/her enrollment in high school as a junior or senior, enrolls in courses for college credit; and
2. An early admission program in which the student enrolls as a full-time college student following completion of the junior year in high school.
The minimum admission
standards for both the joint enrollment and early admission programs have been
developed to allow certain advanced students to receive both high school and
college credit for some courses.
1. Admission Standards
a. Minimum SAT I score of 970, combined Verbal and Mathematics sections, or ACT Composite of 20 with a SAT I Verbal score of at least 530 or ACT English score of 23;
b. Minimum cumulative high school grade point average of 3.0 or higher on a 4.0 scale in courses taken from the required 16 CPC units;
c. Exemption of all LS requirements for early admission;
d. Written consent of parent or guardian (if the student is a minor);
e. Completion of the University System of Georgia CPC requirements with the following exceptions:
Students with SAT I Mathematics score of at least 530 or ACT Mathematics score of at least 22 who have not completed the final unit of mathematics may be permitted to fulfill those high school requirements with the appropriate college courses taken through the joint enrollment or early admissions program.
With the exception of the final units of high school English, social studies and/or mathematics (effective with the high school graduating class of 2001) taken by students with qualifying SAT or ACT scores, a college course may not be used to fulfill the University System of Georgia's CPC requirements. Students who have not completed the 13 CPC requirements beyond these three exceptions may be admitted through the joint enrollment program if they are enrolled in the necessary high school courses and are scheduled to complete the requirements by the end of the senior year.
Acceptance of Transfer
Credit: Joint Enrollment/Early Admissions
Units of the University System of Georgia are prohibited from accepting transfer credit awarded by any college or university to students enrolled in joint high school and college enrollment programs unless those students have a minimum SAT I score of 970 (or ACT Composite of 20) and a HSGPA of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale.
