About Macon State
With certain restrictions, the courses are relatively free to the students. Funding can be secured through the Accel or Move On When Ready program.
The Accel program is funded by the Georgia Lottery for Education and administered by the Georgia Student Finance Commission. It allows a student to attend either on a part-time or full-time basis at Macon State College. Credit hours for which students receive payment from Accel will not be included in the maximum of 127 total credit hours of payment they can receive from the HOPE scholarship program, after they graduate from high school.
The Move On When Ready program is funded through the Georgia Department of Education. Students are required to attend college on a full-time basis and carry a minimum of 12 semester hours per term.
Students are responsible for tuition and fees above 12 semester hours. Students are also responsible for tuition and fees related to courses not covered under the college and high school equivalent courses listed in the Accel and the Move On When Ready programs.
They must apply during spring registration at their high schools and complete the paper joint enrollment application available here.
Application deadline for joint enrollment admission: June 1st for fall semester, and December 1st for spring semester.
