Admissions - Move on When Ready

Move on When Ready (MOWR) is a dual enrollment program that allows an entering 11th or 12th grade high school student to take all of his or her courses with a State college and earn both high school and transferrable college credits. Unlike the ACCEL program, this program requires that students be enrolled in college as full-time students. A student’s tuition and mandatory fees for this program are paid for by the Georgia Department of Education but students are responsible for the purchase of text books and any course specific fees not covered by MOWR funds. Summer enrollment is not covered by MOWR funds.
