The Move on When Ready (MOWR) program provides for students who are dually enrolled at a participating eligible public or private high school, or home study program in Georgia, and a participating eligible postsecondary institution in Georgia. These students take postsecondary coursework for credit towards both high school graduation or home study completion and postsecondary requirements. Beginning with fall term 2015 (FY 2016), the program is offered during all terms of the school year: fall, spring, and summer semester.
Why should I apply for the MOWR program?
The MOWR program is a state-funded program which offers dual enrollment students the opportunity to enroll in approved courses at a participating college or university for NO CHARGE. This means that your tuition, mandatory fees, and books will be paid for by the state if you are enrolled in pre-approved MOWR courses (view the Reinhardt University MOWR-approved course directory).
