Move On When Ready/Dual 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. 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:

The application fee is automatically waived for Move On When Ready students. Essays are NOT required however, they are recommended. 
Transcripts must be sent directly from each and every high school or college attended to the GC Office of the Admissions, Campus Box 023, Milledgeville, GA 31061. Faxed documents and copies provided by the student are NOT considered official and will not be used for admission purposes. Courses from one institution that are listed on another college transcript will not substitute for an official transcript. Prior educational experience may not be omitted from an application package
