The Move On When Ready (MOWR -- formerly known as ACCEL) program provides for students who are dual credit enrolled at Fayette County Schools. 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 or fall, winter, spring, and summer quarter.
There are several benefits for students who participate in Move On When Ready:
The MOWR program allows students to pursue post secondary study at approved public and private colleges and technical colleges while receiving dual high school and college credit for courses successfully completed. Courses pursued by students under this program must come from the approved course directory available at the Georgia Futures website (www.gafutures.org) which is supplied to high school counselors in the state.
To participate in Move On When Ready, students sign an advisement form with their high school counselor, meet the admissions requirements at the postsecondary institution of their choice and make satisfactory academic progress. Interested students should see their high school counselor and visit gafutures.org for program information and the application.
Each college has their own entrance requirements (SAT/ACT score requirements, GPA etc). You may find that information on the college website.
Dropping a college class required for graduation from high school may result in failure to graduate from high school on time.
Communication between the college and high school counselor is crucial whenever changes are made to a student’s schedule. There is corresponding paperwork from the high school, college and Georgia Student Finance Commission that must be completed to participate in the program.
Students participating in the MOWR program are required to take all appropriate EOCs. Due to testing windows, this may interfere with a student’s college schedule.
