In August 2011, Governor Nathan Deal announced the launch of Complete College Georgia, a statewide effort to increase attainment of a high quality certificate or degree. Since that announcement, the University System of Georgia (USG) and the Technical College System of Georgia (TCSG) have partnered and collaborated on the strategizing, planning, and implementing efforts that drive the primary goal of Complete College Georgia to improve student access to and graduation from institutions of higher education.
By 2025, it is projected that over 60 percent of jobs in Georgia will require some form of a college education, whether a certificate, associate’s degree, or bachelor’s degree. Today, only 47.9 percent of the state’s young adults, its burgeoning workforce, qualify.
While much work remains, Georgia has already made advances through guaranteed transfer of the courses in the core curriculum within the University System, and articulation of 27 courses in the core between TCSG and USG, the implementation of corequisite remediation at scale, substantial investments in academic advising and data analytics, and programs to promote credit intensity.
