Opportunities for Students during High School

Recognizing the need to offer opportunities for academic acceleration to talented high school students, UWG allows early entrance through three organized programs.  They each offer the opportunity to simultaneously fulfill high school graduation requirements and earn college credits:  

  • Move on When Ready (MOWR) / Dual Enrollment – The student continues his/her enrollment in high school, while also enrolling in courses for college credit.
  • Early Admission – The student enrolls as a full-time college student following completion of the junior year in high school but will graduate from their home high school.
  • The Advanced Academy of Georgia – A unique full-time program for outstanding high school juniors and seniors.  Visit www.advancedacademy.org for more information.

MOWR / Dual Enrollment and Early Admission are for qualified students at accredited public or private high schools in the state of Georgia, and are operated in all school terms except summer.  Homeschooled students may also be considered if they meet both early-entrance and general homeschooled admission requirements.  Courses are offered to students on both the Carrollton and the Newnan campuses.

What is Move On When Ready?

As of July 1st, 2015 the State of Georgia has aggregated several programs (MoWR, Accel, and HOPE grant) in order to facilitate the student's ease of access to these services. The conglomeration of these programs is now called "Move on When Ready".
