Move On When Ready Program


What Does it Mean for My Child?

The Move On When Ready program prepares your child for college. In MOWR, your child takes college courses while in high school. So, he or she earns high school and college credits at the same time. MOWR classes are small and your child will have a lot of contact with professors.

When your child starts college, they’ll be done with some freshman classes, like English composition. Your child will finish GPC sooner. So, you pay less money for college tuition. If your child takes advantage of the MOWR funding, then you pay no money for their MOWR tuition.

Many GPC students who finish MOWR do better when they transfer to four-year universities. They often get better grades than students who went to four-year schools as freshmen.

If your child earns a “C” or higher in their MOWR courses, they get college credits. In AP courses, they have to take a test to see if they get the college credit.

The testimony from a former MOWR student says it all:
Laura Lancaster took MOWR classes at GPC.

“The Dual Enrollment Program introduced me to the responsibility of college. I learned how to manage my time better, and it was great preparation for college. College classes are substantially different than high school, and Dual Enrollment was a great way to make the transition.”
