In July 2016, the state of Georgia implemented the Move on When Ready (MOWR) program. The program replaces the current ACCEL program and provides participation in dual enrollment credit for eligible high school students. Students can begin taking dual enrollment courses as early as ninth grade in hopes of receiving their associate degree before high school graduation. Both athletic eligibility and HOPE hours are now not affected.
Students are allowed to attend four terms up to 16 quarter credit hours per term. Through state funding and GMC scholarship funds, all tuition and books are free.
Tutoring, Academic Success Coaching & Academic Outreach
Students can be grouped into cohorts (4+ students) per course so that their peers are high school classmates. This allows the high school to build the college courses directly into their students schedules so that the classes can be taken as part of a normal school day. We use our most qualified faculty, many with secondary education experience, to teach the courses.
We provide weekly progress reports to the high school counselors that are generated from our dual enrollment coordinator. Tutor.com is a free tutoring service paid for by the college and is available to all online students.
Our partnerships ensure that each student has the best chance for success as both institutions work together with each student. A Dual Enrollment Partnership requires nothing from the local high school. We only ask that you closely work with our campus to the benefits of your students.
GMC has regional accreditation through SACSCOC and an abundance of articulation agreements with Georgia colleges. Each student can be assured that credits earned through our dual enrollment program will transfer to their college of choice.
Even if a school chooses not to form a partnership, their students can take advantage of our dual enrollment courses. Every student should have the chance to get a head start on college.
