Dual Enrollment is a game changer. In Georgia it is free. The savings in tuition, books, and fees alone is worthwhile. However, the most significant value may come from early college graduation. Graduating a year early means entering the workforce a year early. Potentially, this means investing a year earlier. If a disciplined young investor saved $1,000 per month for 1 year of money he wouldn’t have had otherwise without early graduation this could grow to over $500,000. Over 98% percent of the amount would be return on investment. You can experiment with the investment calculator here.
