Catoosa County High School seniors graduate with associate degrees
A group of students in Catoosa County received something extra at their graduation Tuesday.
Three students from each high school in the county got their diploma, and got their associate's degree from either Georgia Northwestern or Dalton State.
It's all thanks to the state's dual enrollment program called "Move On When Ready."
It lets high school students take college courses, and get credit for both.
If they don't get enough credits to graduate with their associates degree, they can still enter straight into college with credits earned.
"Move On When Ready" is free to high school students in Georgia.
