Move On When Ready (Dual Enrollment - Joint Enrollment)

Georgia College & State University

MOVE
 ON
 WHEN
 READY
(Dual Enrollment - Joint Enrollment)

Guidelines  

Move On When Ready (MOWR) is Georgia’s new dual enrollment program that allows high school students to earn college credit while working on their high school diploma. The new law streamlines the existing dual enrollment options (Move On When Ready, Accel, and HOPE Grant) into one program with one funding source. By consolidating the existing programs into a single program, it will be easier for students and parents to navigate and take advantage of the available options to enroll in college courses while still in high school.

 MOWR

OR

  • Have a minimum 970 combined Critical Math and Critical Reading SAT (or a 20 ACT Composite) and a High School academic GPA of 3.5 or higher (as calculated by the Office of Admissions)
