Move On When Ready

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. The new MOWR program includes provisions to help remove some of the financial barriers that may prevent students from participating in a dual enrollment program. Please click on the name of the program for further information.
