NGU Partners with GCS to Offer Dual Enrollment Opportunities
Posted on: February 21, 2023
Tigerville, SC (February 21, 2023) North Greenville University (NGU) is partnering with Greenville County Schools (GCS) to offer a new dual enrollment opportunity for high school juniors and seniors.
Through the NGU Dual Enrollment Program, students at least 16 years old with an overall GPA of 3.0 can take college courses at NGU and earn credits toward their bachelor’s degree at $100 per credit hour.
“We’re excited about introducing more students to what we offer here at North Greenville,” said Andy Ray, Senior Director of Enrollment Engagement at NGU. “We’ve had students taking dual enrollment courses here for many years, but we’re excited to formalize that process with Greenville County Schools and welcome new students into our program.”
North Greenville University has expanded its reach through dual enrollment partnerships with Spartanburg Christian Academy, Spartanburg School District One, Legacy Early College Charter High School, Odyssey Online Learning, Tri-State Deaf School of Theology, and Upstate Homeschool Co-Op.
Dual enrollment participants can earn up to 24 credit hours before high school graduation and challenge themselves with college academics.
Students must apply for admission to the university as dual enrollment students. After admission and enrollment, they may take one or two freshman or sophomore-level courses per semester online or in classrooms on the NGU campus in Tigerville, SC.
If dual enrollment students choose to enroll full-time at NGU after high school graduation, they will receive a one-time Dual Enrollment Scholarship for every class taken in the program that will equal two-thirds of the tuition they have invested. The scholarship award effectively reduces the price to $100 per course.
