ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Some South Georgia high school students learned how they can take college courses while still in high school.

Darton State College held a 'Move on When Ready' Information night for parents and students. 

Officials said high school sophomores, juniors and seniors can take a variety of courses at no cost and still earn college credit. 

"So they can choose from general ed courses typically classes in math, science, and humanities, social sciences. And in doing so earn the college credits as well as satisfy high school requirements without having to pay a single dime in tuition dollars," said Al Case, Director of Admissions.

Darton officials said they plan on doing on-site admissions for the 'Move on When Ready' program at high schools in Southwest Georgia.
