Dual Enrollment/Joint Enrollment/Move On When Ready
Georgia College offers three options for dual enrollment to high school students who have completed at least the 10th grade and seek to challenge themselves by participating at the college level.
Dual Enrollment students are high school students taking college courses in order to satisfy high school diploma requirements, as well as earning college credit applicable toward a college degree. Dual Enrollment students are potentially eligible for funding through the ACCEL program to cover most of their tuition and fees and a book allowance for approved courses for fall and spring semester. ACCEL funding does not apply to summer enrollment.
Joint Enrollment students are high school students taking college courses for college credit only. In other words, the college credit is not being used for high school credit towards the diploma. Joint Enrollment students are not eligible for ACCEL funds.
Move On When Ready (MOWR) is designed as another option for 11th and 12th grade students seeking dual enrollment. This program allows a student to take full-time course work at the college level. To qualify, a student must have spent the past 2 consecutive years enrolled in a Georgia high school and be approved by his/her high school counselor. Funding options are available through the Georgia Department of Education for qualified students. Georgia College, along with other University System of Georgia institutions, has set specific minimum criteria for MOWR candidates.
Admission Requirements for Dual and/or Joint Enrollment
Dual and/or Joint Enrollment applicants must have a 3.0 academic grade point average calculated only on college preparatory curriculum courses and must be on track to complete a College Preparatory diploma. It is recommended that these students, have SAT scores of at least 530 Critical Reading and 530 Math (or 23 English ACT and 22 Math ACT), however other scores may be considered in accordance with University System of Georgia minimum requirements and based on the applicant's desired course selection.
For local area students who will be simultaneously enrolled in high school AND college, there are no set application deadlines since we strive to accommodate these students as best we can. However, early application is encouraged.
Admission Requirements for Move On When Ready
Move On When Ready applicants must have a 3.5 academic grade point calculated only on college preparatory curriculum courses, must be on track to complete a College Preparatory diploma, and must have a combined SAT score of 1200 (Critical Reading + Math) or a 26 ACT composite score. Space is limited to only six MOWR participants per year. Students admitted into this program are required to be full-time residential students. The deadline to apply for consideration for the MOWR program is April 1st.
