Programs for High School Students
Move On When Ready/Dual Enrollment
The Move On When Ready program at Atlanta Technical College provides an opportunity for students to dual enroll at a participating eligible public or private high school, or home school program in Georgia, and Atlanta Tech. Students take coursework at Atlanta Technical College for credit towards both high school graduation or home study completion and postsecondary requirements. Students must have approval from their high school guidance counselor and their parents to participate.
The program is offered during all academic semesters – Fall, Spring, and Summer.
The Georgia Student Finance Commission requires that a MOWR High School/Home Study Program Participation Agreement be on file for each high school/home study program in order for students from that high school/home study program to participate in the MOWR program. For more information about MOWR and its requirements, please visit the Georgia Department of Education’s website.
To obtain the MOWR Application and Program Participant Agreement, contact Juli Gilyard, High School Programs Coordinator at (404) 225-4427 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
