On April 29, 2009, Governor Sonny Perdue signed HB 149, "The Move on When Ready Act," which permits 11th and 12th grade students to leave their assigned high schools and attend postsecondary institutions full-time to earn course credit that will apply towards high school graduation and college. The "Move on When Ready Act," is intended as another option(not a replacement) for 11th and 12th graders, in addition to other regular dual enrollment programs, residential programs, early college, career academies and charter schools.
Students interested in participating in the program will be required to meet the following criteria:
- Be at least a high school junior or senior in a public high school
- Have a 530 Critical Reading and 530 Math on the SAT
- Have a 23 English and 22 Math on the ACT
- Have a minimum High School Academic GPA of 3.5
The admissions process for MOWR is the same for all other types of admission to the College. Application with accompanying application fee, official transcripts and standardized test scores must all be received by the application and document deadline. Immunization record is required before a student is allowed to register.
Students admitted to GSC through MOWR will be offered priority registration. Contact information for Ms. Angie Murrell, Oconee Campus and Mr. Charles Bell, Gainesville Campus will be listed on the students' acceptance letter.
