Joint Enrollment


Greetings, I'm Dr McGill (Chair of the Chemistry & Physics Department GC&SU).  I have developed an online college Chemistry course (CHEM1211K and CHEM1212K) where all experiments and lessons are performed at home.  It was created for the University of Georgia ECORE program (http://www.gactr.uga.edu/ecore/). This is a college course and offers college credit that must transfer to any Georgia College or University and in almost all cases will transfer to anywhere in the world.  HOPE can pay it for and I think it would be ideally suited for home-schooled students.  We have offered these courses for two years to Georgia College students all over the state.  We are interested in offering these courses to High School students in a joint enrollment fashion, but feel it would be best to begin this next phase with home-schooled students for several reasons.  1) Home school students have already developed the self-discipline to study on their own.  2) Home school groups and associations are more receptive to new ideas.  3) Homes groups and associations are not burdened by public school bureaucracy.  If you are interested in learning more please email me (ken.mcgill@gcsu.edu).


            Here are some of the details about the course:

  • Cost is $131 per semester credit hour (four hour course $524, three hour course $393).
  • You may register at any of the ECORE institutions
    • Columbus State University
    • Georgia Southwestern State University
    • Floyd College
    • Southern Polytechnic State University
    • State University of West Georgia
    • Valdosta State University
  • You must meet the entrance requirements of the institution where you choose to register.
  • We would like to pilot the class this summer with at least 24 students.
