About Macon State
Macon State College, in cooperation with area high schools, offers Joint Enrollment, Early Admission, and Move on When Ready programs for students who are at least sixteen years of age and who are classified as juniors or seniors in high school. These programs are designed to encourage academically superior students to begin college level work at Macon State College while completing requirements for high school graduation.
It is left to the discretion of the high school as to whether credit earned in these programs will be accepted toward fulfillment of its graduation requirements. Therefore, it is very important that students consult their high school guidance counselor and/or principal to determine the college courses in which to enroll to satisfy graduation requirements. The school counselor or principal making the recommendation must submit written course recommendations to the Office of Admissions together with the student’s high school transcript and Scholastic Aptitude Test or the ACT Assessment Program scores. For students planning to enroll during the summer term immediately following completion of their junior year, a transcript showing work completed through the first semester or second quarter of their junior year should be submitted. A supplementary transcript showing the last semester or quarter’s work should be submitted at the end of the term.
Students considering applying for any of these programs should take the SAT or ACT as early as possible. Applications will be considered on an individual basis, and a personal interview may be required. Applicants may obtain application materials and additional information from their high school counselor or from the Office of Admissions at Macon State College.
Students entering fall semester must apply for admission by June 1st, and spring semester by December 1st. All Joint Enrollment, Early Admissions, and Move on When Ready admissions requirements must be complete by July 1st for fall semester, and December 15th for spring semester.
