UNG's summer Accel program is first in state
By Ken Stanford Staff
High school students practice writing in Arabic during a summer camp at the University of North Georgia. This summer, UNG will offer the state's first-ever summer Accel program, with courses in biology and mathematics or foreign language and culture.
DAHLONEGA - In a program that is the first of its kind in Georgia, the University of North Georgia (UNG) is offering a residential summer dual-enrollment program for high school students interested in language or science and mathematics.
Tuition is paid by the state's Accel program, and JROTC students also could qualify for additional scholarship funds to study language.
Dr. Chaudron Gille, UNG's associate vice president for university affairs and academic services, said dual enrollment programs such as Accel can shorten the time it takes to a student earn a college degree, one of several strategies identified in the statewide Complete College Georgia initiative. Enrollment in Accel grew by 24 percent this year at UNG. This is the first time, however, the program has been available during the summer and in a residential experience.
