Armstrong offers new opportunity for GA high school students

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Armstrong State University is offering a new opportunity to help high school students get a kick start on college.

They are now able to offer their "Move on When Ready" program during the summer.

"Our Move on When Ready program is a program for high school students who wish to be duel enrolled with their high school and with the college," said Dr. Delana Nivens, Armstrong State University.

Any Georgia high school student who meets the requirements has the opportunity to take college courses for free and for credit.

"Sociology, or psychology, economics, history any of those kinds of courses," she said.

They've been offering this program during the fall, winter and spring quarters but now for the first time they are offering it during the summer as well.

"I think that it provides students an opportunity to just take one course because they want to or they need it for their graduation," said Dr. Nivens. "It would help them lighten their load in the fall or the spring during their regular school year."

University officials say "Move on When Ready" is an invaluable learning experience for high schoolers and they hope many students take advantage of it this summer.

"A lot of students, they just want to experience college and they just want to see what it is like," said Dr. Nivens. "It gives them that opportunity and it really just helps them get ahead."

In order to be a part of "Move on When Ready", there is a three part application process.
