Move On When Ready Program
How do you know if you are "accepted" or not?
You'll receive an email from GPC directing you to call your Move On When Ready coordinator.
Once you apply online, submit all of the checklist items, and allow the Admissions department time enough to process everything (usually a few weeks), you will receive your email indicating that you have now been "accepted".
As soon as that happens, do the following...
Talk to your high school counselor about the classes you want to take.
There are different ways to fit classes into your schedule. You could take GPC classes in the morning and then go to your high school. Or, take GPC classes during your last period in the afternoons. You could take late afternoon and evening classes, too. Your high school counselor has to approve any classes you take.
Make an appointment with your MOWR Coordinator.
Your coordinator will help you choose courses and then register you in classes.
Before you meet with the coordinator you should view the courses GPC offers each semester.
You can view courses in the Student Information System (SIS) found here.
You can also look at course specifics using the common course outline found here.
The common course outline tells you the objectives and content of each course.
The Next Steps for Accepted Move On When Ready students
These next steps only apply to students who have already been "accepted" to GPC and have received the email indicating so.
Complete the Move On When Ready Student Participation Agreement (SPA) form:

This form must be filled out completely and correctly in order to be registered for any classes.
The form must be signed by you, your parent, and your high school guidance counselor prior to turning it in to GPC.
Bring this completed form to your MOWR Coordinator when you come in to register for classes during your advisement/orientation appointment.

Submit AP scores if you haven't already done so. You may be eligible for college credit for most AP exams on which you scored a 3 or higher.
The code for Georgia Perimeter College is 5711.
Students are responsible for checking with their intended four year institutions to see what that institution will accept for AP scores as these differ from one institution to another.
