Dominion Christian School provides opportunity for students to earn college credit through our Dual Enrollment partnership with Truett-McConnell University.
Dual enrollment is made possible through the Accel Program allowing qualified sophomores, juniors, and seniors to pursue advanced studies while receiving high school credit and college credit. Dominion has approved faculty to teach one or more TMU courses. Additionally, we also offer TMU courses through their online program. At this time, the Georgia legislature has determined that credit hours earned (made possible by the Georgia Student Finance Commmission) do not count toward the limit of post-secondary hours paid for by the HOPE program.
- Courses qualify for both college and high school credit
- Courses are through a fully accredited program; courses are widely accepted as transferable college credits
- Credit hours earned do not count toward the limit of post-secondary hours paid through the HOPE program.
Student Enrollment Requirements
