New! Move On When Ready
Dual-Credit Program for Georgia High School Students (MOWR)


Move On When Ready - Educating Georgia’s Future through Dual Credit

In 2015, the Georgia General Assembly passed a law that streamlined the existing dual-enrollment programs. As a result, Accel, Dual HOPE Grant, and the original Move On When Ready have been combined into one program entitledMove On When Ready (MOWR), in which high school students may earn high school course credits while taking college courses. Georgia’s Move On When Ready dual-credit program is available to any Georgia student in grades 9-12 enrolled in a public school, private school, or home-study program operated pursuant to O.C.G.A. 20-2-690 in Georgia.
