Grant Summary

$25,000 over 12 months to Georgia Independent Colleges Association (GICA) to develop a coordinated strategy with Technical College System of Georgia to strengthen the transfer pipeline and broaden the number of independent colleges accepting an A.S. degree as satisfying the general education/core requirements (traditional AA degrees are only offered within the University System of Georgia, which merged community college and four-year institutions and seeks to keep AA students within its system).
