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. Students MUST complete the 9th grade and be on track to complete the Required High School Curriculum. The application is available at Georgia Futures. You may also download a paper application here.
Our Priority Deadlines are July 1 for Fall, November 1 for Spring, and May 1 for Summer.
A complete application consists of the following:
• SAT/ AP/CLEP: 5252 • ACT: 0828
You may check your admission status online here. If you have any questions, please contact the Admissions Office at 478-445-2774. Students who applied more than one year ago, but did not enroll, must submit a new application and all supporting documents.

Financial Aid Process
MOWR Program Information and Applications for Georgia Student Finance Commission can be found here.
The MOWR Application has three parts:
- Part A: Student Section – should include parent and student information.
- Part B: High School or Home Study Program Section – should include student information and advisement of dual enrollment and high school requirements.
- Part C: Post-secondary Institution Section – should include student information and advisement of dual enrollment, as well as post-secondary course requirements.
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.
