Imagine! Taking exciting college classes before you graduate from high school. Finishing college and getting started on your career years early. Saving money on tuition that can be used for other goals, from starting a business to traveling the world.

If this sounds good to you, look into Move On When Ready (MOWR), a new program for high school students who want to earn college credit while finishing their high school diplomas.

  • Save time! You can earn an associate degree while finishing high school.

  • Save money! Your tuition, mandatory fees and books are fully covered.

  • Save HOPE credits! Courses taken under Move On When Ready don’t count against the maximum hourly caps for HOPE scholarships or grants.

  • Flex your schedule! You can participate in Move On When Ready in any semester – and you can choose convenient times for on-campus or online classes.

  • Transfer your credits! Many of your credits are guaranteed to transfer to other colleges and universities in Georgia if you decide to continue your studies for a bachelor’s degree.

  • In some cases, students may need to pay additional supply fees or purchase supplies or equipment.
