*Move On When Ready is a dual enrollment program for students in grades 9-12 who qualify to participate. Students may enroll on a part-time or full-time basis as a MOWR student and take college courses. Students will receive high school and college credit simultaneously when attending and passing approved college classes. **MOWR replaces Accel, HOPE Grant for dual enrollment and the previous Move On When Ready program. The new MOWR program now covers tuition, mandatory fees and required textbooks.
There are several benefits for students who participate in Move On When Ready.
- Introduces students to college-level coursework.
- Earning college credits while still in high school may enable students to graduate early and/or possibly even earn an associate degree, diploma or certificate.
- Helps students adjust to certain aspects of the college experience (e.g., classes, coursework, instruction, being on a college campus) so the transition from high school to college may be easier.
- Students who participate in a dual enrollment program are more likely to go to college and get a college degree.
- Students may be able to take classes that are not offered at their high school, especially in subject areas they are interested in for a potential career.
- Participating in a dual enrollment program demonstrates a student’s ability to handle more difficult coursework which is something college admissions officers may look upon favorably during admissions and recruiting.
- Taking college-level classes while still in high school may build confidence and encourage those students who may not be thinking about college to reconsider.
