GNTC to host Move On When Ready New student orientations at all six campuses
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.
