Walker County Messenger - - Front Page -

Ge­or­gia North­west­ern Tech­ni­cal Col­lege will hold face-to-face ori­en­ta­tions in July for high school stu­dents par­tic­i­pat­ing in the Move On When Ready (MOWR) Dual En­roll­ment Pro­gram.

The MOWR ori­en­ta­tions will last ap­prox­i­mately 1-2 hours and are only for high school stu­dents who are en­rolled in the MOWR pro­gram at Ge­or­gia North­west­ern. These ses­sions are sep­a­rate from the ori­en­ta­tions for new GNTC stu­dents.

At­tend­ing a Move On When Ready ori­en­ta­tion ses­sion is not manda­tory, but is en­cour­aged. Reg­is­tra­tion is re­quired prior to tak­ing part in a MOWR ori­en­ta­tion.

Ge­or­gia’s Move On When Ready Dual En­roll­ment Pro­gram al­lows qual­i­fied high school stu­dents to max­i­mize their education and ca­reer train­ing by tak­ing cour­ses that earn col­lege and high school credit at the same time.

Any stu­dent in an el­i­gi­ble Ge­or­gia high school or home study pro­gram who has achieved re­quired scores on the col­lege place­ment exam, are el­i­gi­ble to take part in the MOWR pro­gram.

Place­ment tests for the MOWR pro­gram are pro­vided at area high schools. Stu­dents that haven’t taken the place­ment exam can con­tact their high school coun­selor or a mem­ber of GNTC’s High School Ini­tia­tives staff.

All col­lege course­work taken through the MOWR pro­gram is cov­ered with MOWR funding. Stu­dents are not re­quired to pay for tu­ition, col­lege fees, or text­books. The only fees Hart, di­rec­tor of High School Ini­tia­tives at GNTC. “These stu­dents have taken 32,880 credit hours.”

Many MOWR cour­ses also of­fer stu­dents the op­por­tu­nity to earn an in­dus­try cer­tifi­cate. This gives stu­dents the op­tion of ei­ther en­ter­ing the work­force upon grad­u­a­tion from high school or con­tin­u­ing their education at a TCSG or Uni­ver­sity Sys­tem of Ge­or­gia col­lege. Ei­ther way, they be­gin their se­lected ca­reer path with a head start.
