Earlier this year, the Move On When Ready Act (MOWR) was signed into law. This program simplifies and expands Georgia's dual enrollment opportunities so that high school students can simultaneously satisfy high school requirements and get a jump-start on a postsecondary credential. For further information, please see the Frequently Asked Questions attachments about this new program.
These are a few highlights of the program:
- The state will cover the cost of a dually-enrolled student's postsecondary tuition, fees, and books. Students will only need to pay for course-related fees such as a welding mask for a welding course.
- Postsecondary credits earned through dual enrollment do not count toward a student's HOPE Grant or HOPE Scholarship caps.
- Students attending a Georgia public or private high school or a home study program operated pursuant to law are eligible to participate in MOWR.
- MOWR strengthens partnerships between postsecondary institutions and K-12 schools, which is formalized in a signed agreement by participating institutions with the Georgia Student Finance Commission.
