College Board Eases Credit Transfers for Students

Public college students in Georgia will be able to transfer their credits more easily when they move to another state institution.

That's one of the rules the Board of Regents approved yesterday for 35 colleges in the University System of Georgia.

The rule change is part of a regular overhaul of the system’s core curriculum--classes all students must take.

Some other changes include giving colleges more flexibility when developing their core and making sure students take lessons in critical thinking.

The new core goes into effect Fall 2011 for four year colleges, 2012 for two-year institutions.
