Move On When Ready (MOWR)
Current High School Students
The Move on When Ready (MOWR) program at Oconee Fall Line 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 the College. Students take coursework at Oconee Fall Line Tech for credit towards both high school graduation or home study completion and postsecondary requirements. Students may participate in activities at both the College and their high school. Students must have approval from their high school guidance office and their parents to participate.
The program is offered during all academic semesters – Fall, Spring, and Summer. 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.
