Move On When Ready (Dual Enrollment - Joint Enrollment)
Georgia College & State University
(Dual Enrollment - Joint Enrollment)
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.

- Have a minimum 530 Critical Math and 530 Critical Reading SAT (or 23 English and 22 Math ACT) and a High School academic GPA of 3.0 or higher (as calculated by the Office of Admissions)
- 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)

MOWR Program Application for Georgia Student Finance Commission form: Click here to download
The MOWR Application has three parts:
The MOWR application is required each term the student plans to participate in the dual enrollment program and would like to receive funding from MOWR. The MOWR application requires the dual enrollment courses to be listed and approved by the high school/home study program and post secondary institution. The courses must be from the MOWR Approved Course Directory located on GAcollege411.org.
Due to class availability constraints, enrollment in the MOWR program will be limited.
Post secondary institutions are under no obligation to offer courses that will insure a student participating in MOWR will complete high school graduation requirements on time. Academic advising and course planning will be coordinated through the Georgia College Academic Advising Department.
Required textbooks will be available for rent at no cost to the student from the Georgia College Barnes & Noble Bookstore only.
Funding for eligible students enrolled through MOWR is available through the Georgia College Office of Financial Aid. Once awarded funding through this office, tuition and mandatory fees may be covered, but course specific fees will be the responsibility of the student.
