Move On When Ready
Move on When Ready provides opportunities for high school juniors and seniors to enroll full-time (12 semester hours) in post-secondary institutions to earn both high school and college credits simultaneously. Approved college on-line courses can also be taken that meet high school graduation requirements. Funding for Move on When Ready is proved through the local school system’s equivalent (FTE) program count as determined by the Georgia Department of Education. Student participation is based on semester to semester or quarter to quarter participation. Summer school is now allowed for MOWR participation.
How to participate in MOWR:
- Have attend a Georgia public high school full-time the prior year (full year)
- Meet with your high school MOWR Coordinator to discuss the guidelines and responsibilities of the program
- All students and a parent must meet with Mrs. Dean before June 2, 2017 or they will not be able to participate in MOWR
- During this meeting you will sign the required documentation and Northside will approve your potential classes
- Apply to the college of choice through GAFutures.org.
