Funding Apps:

A funding app is the method by which WGTC (or other post-secondary institution) is paid by the state for Dual Enrollment students. To be registered for a CCI program, students must complete a funding app. Students will NOT be registered for their programs until a funding app has been submitted. 

A new funding app is needed for each semester a student is enrolled in a program, so most students must complete a minimum of 2 funding apps per school year. If they plan on enrolling for summer courses, they will need 3 funding apps per school year. 

Students will NOT need to complete separate funding apps for CCI programs and core Dual Enrollment Courses. 

Funding apps can be completed here at GAFutures.org 
Homeschooled students and students without social security numbers will need to fill out a paper funding application. Those can be found here.

Accuplacer 

What is the Accuplacer? 
The Accuplacer is an admissions test used by the technical colleges of Georgia. The test is untimed, computerized, and evaluates skills in reading, writing, and math. All students who participate in a CCI Dual Enrollment program must first be admitted into West Georgia Technical College, Accuplacer testing is part of that process.

Is the Accuplacer required? 
The Accuplacer is the primary method for admittance into CCI Dual Enrollment programs. Other scores/options that can be used include PSAT, SAT, ACT, a qualifying EOC score (for the writing/reading portions only) or a 2.6 HOPE GPA. In most cases,  a student would have to complete the 10th grade before they can use a method other than the Accuplacer for admittance. Please speak with your school counselor if are planning on using a method other than the Accuplacer to be admitted into a CCI Dual Enrollment program.

What must I do to take the Accuplacer?
1. Sign-up and receive a permission slip from your school's Career Center Specialist. 
2. Complete and return a permission slip to your Career Center Specialist. The permission slip is required for your school to count your test visit as a field trip for attendance purposes. 
3. Study for the Accuplacer test using the free study app available at https://accuplacerpractice.collegeboard.org
4. Ride the bus to the CCI on your assigned test day to take the Accuplacer test. The CCI bus will transport you from your high school at approximately 8:30 a.m. and will leave the CCI to return you your high school at 11:35 a.m. 


When is the Accuplacer offered? 
The Accuplacer is offered most Fridays at the CCI. Check with your Career Center Specialist for all current testing dates.
